Appthority Trust Score: App Reputation
The Appthority Trust Score and app ratings are tailored to fit every individual customer, taking input from their existing policies for bring your own device (BYOD, BOYA, mobile first), mobile app management (MAM) and mobile device management (MDM).
The Appthority Trust Score is a measure of the total risk of an app. The score might be as low as 0 to denote a malware app and ranges up to 100 for an app with no measurable risk. The Trust Score is comprised of a summary of all of the risky behavior found in each app. Examples of risky behavior might be, does the app:
– Access/share the corporate address book?
– Access/share the corporate calendar?
– Track the location of key executives?
– Share data with 3rd parties?
– Share data without encryption
– Have malware?
After analyzing nearly two million apps for our enterprise customers Appthority learned what behaviors are acceptable for each app type or category, and leveraged that database to develop a proprietary app reputation system.
