Appdome partners with JetBrains to automate delivery of secure mobile apps
Appdome has integrated its Cyber Defense Automation Platform with the CI/CD cloud-based service from JetBrains TeamCity allowing teams to automate the build, test and deployment of their mobile applications. JetBrains TeamCity is now part of the Appdome Dev2Cyber Agility Partner Initiative to advance the delivery of secure mobile apps globally.
Manual methods of cyber defense implementations in Android and iOS apps are complex, slow and brittle. Appdome’s cyber defense automation platform streamlines delivery and accelerates release times by using technology to build cybersecurity defenses into iOS and Android apps – including runtime application self-protection (RASP), code obfuscation, mobile data encryption, jailbreak detection, root detection, man-in-the-middle attack prevention, on-device anti-malware, anti-fraud, anti-cheat, anti-bot and other protections.
The new Appdome-JetBrains TeamCity partnership solves mobile brands’ need for technology platforms to automate the delivery of cyber defense in mobile apps and to keep pace with modern DevOps pipelines.
“Our recent global survey shows that consumers’ preferred way to interact with brands is mobile, which increases the urgency for development teams to create and update apps frequently to remain competitive. They’re working in an environment that is continuous, agile and fast-moving,” said Tom Tovar, CEO of Appdome.
“Development teams need a cyber defense solution for mobile app development that takes advantage of and integrates with mobile development best practices and tooling. In this way, they can deliver the protections end-users desire in their iOS and Android apps, build by build and release by release,” Tovar added.
Today, global consumers demand more protection than ever in their mobile app experiences. Appdome’s recent Global Consumer Expectations of Mobile App Security survey revealed that 94% of global consumers would promote a brand if the mobile apps protected them against security, fraud and malware risks. 68% also indicated they would abandon brands that offered no protection.
“JetBrains TeamCity is a key development platform for mobile apps, and developers using it need to be able to build security protections into their apps rapidly from within the platform,” said Karen Hsu, SVP of Mobile DevOps and Security Solutions. “This integration with JetBrains TeamCity enables brands and their development teams to meet growing demands from mobile users for stronger protection.”
