Mobile App Collection

With millions of mobile apps available to employees, you want to make sure your app risk management solution is continuously up-to-date. Appthority has automatically collected and analyzed over 3 million unique mobile apps. Using smart scanning technologies, we monitor and detect for employee new app installs and changes to existing installed apps through app store version updates.

App Store Integrations

By integrating with Apple (iOS), Google (Android), and select 3rd party app stores, Appthority has the widest global reach and biggest database of risk analyzed mobile apps.

Continuous Collection

With new apps arriving daily at online app stores, Appthority’s cloud-based mobile app collection system works automatically and continuously to stay in sync.

Apps In-Use Detection

Appthority focuses its risk analysis on those apps actually in use by your enterprise. New and versioned apps are automatically scanned as employees make updates to their mobile device.

App Risk Analysis

Every mobile app has the potential to steal or leak sensitive and private company information. Risky app behaviors, hidden actions, and malicious malware code can all conspire to exfiltrate valuable information from employee mobile devices. Appthority incorporates the most advanced app risk analysis technologies available for assessing and reporting the risks to your enterprise information.

Deep Binary Inspection

Appthority conducts deep analysis of an app’s binary structures to determine if there are risky APIs, URLs, 3rd party code frameworks, and malicious malware present.

Dynamic Behavior Analysis

Apps are evaluated for their behavior and communications during run-time. Appthority can then monitor and analyze for different risk scenarios based on what the app is actually doing.

Custom App Risk Scores

Based on custom mobile risk policy triggers, IT teams can automate custom app risk scores to individual apps based on the significance of behavior(s) exhibited by each app.

bug-newApp URL Risk Intelligence

Identifies, tracks, and alerts for any apps making URL requests to known malicious destination addresses, or addresses that are deemed geographically undesirable by IT teams.

Enhanced Advanced Malware Detection

In addition to checking for known malware signatures, Appthority goes further than any other solution by assessing a broad range of app behaviors that can be early indicators of malicious intent.

App Risk Scoring

After deep analysis, mobile apps are given a simplified aggregate score to provide an easy and comparative assessment of risk.

Risk Control & Management

Effective security is not one size fits all. Few companies have the same information risk policies nor the same enforcement strategies. Mobile risk policy for executives traveling to remote geographies may be different from development engineers collaborating and sharing sensitive IP. Appthority gives you the flexibility and control to create and apply the app risk policy best suited to the your security needs.

Custom Security Policies

Set unique app risk policies that can be individually applied to different employee groups or situations. Policy adjustments in risk tolerance can be easily made to account for overall changes to corporate information security and privacy policies.

Automated Whitelists
 & Blacklists

Millions of apps and versions make manually built whitelists and blacklists a non-starter. Appthority automates populating these lists based on the app behaviors you decide are important. Using Smart App Lists, IT admins can automatically create any custom list of dynamically grouped apps based on triggered app behaviors.

bug-new On-Device Protection & Alerts

The risks to your enterprise from mobile apps is dynamically changing every minute of every day as employees install new apps and/or update existing ones. How can you avoid those mobile environment changes putting your company at risk? Appthority provides on-device mobile apps to continuously monitor employee devices for malware and mobile app changes that could pose a data loss risk, or apps that are aggregating private company information.

App Store Category Whitelist Browsing

Employees can use app store categories to search for apps within a category that are compliant with IT policies. For example, an employee could search the Business:Documents & Files category to see which cloud storage apps are IT compliant before they install one.

3rd Party App Store App Install Detection

Appthority continuously checks for any app that has been installed from a 3rd party app store or other potential malicious sources.

Mobile Device Management Integrations

An MDM can be the foundational piece of your enterprise mobility strategy. Managing employee devices, and even apps, is core to that strategy. But how do you add the app security and risk intelligence to drive compliance actions you might want to take with your MDM? Appthority’s seamless integration with leading MDM systems adds powerful app risk assessment and analysis capabilities to greatly enhance your existing mobility management investment.

App Discovery

Appthority monitors the apps on your employee devices to detect new and updated versions. Any changes are synced to the Appthority system for app risk analysis.

Employee Notifications

Compliance begins with positive employee communication and education. Appthority helps with both by automating notifications and warnings to employees about risky apps violating policies.

Enhanced Remediation Actions

When notifications aren’t enough, Appthority gives you policy-driven remediation actions that escalate employee device compliance enforcement such as device or app quarantine, wipe, retirement, and network access restrictions.
