Organizations are deploying mobile applications to run critical
processes or deliver services through web, client or hybrid apps. As
highly critical sectors, such as the financial industry, continue to
innovate via the adoption of new mobile services, such as mobile
banking, peer-to-peer transactions or bill payment, the underlying
consumer-facing or internal applications that reside in or
communicate with mobile devices, now host tremendous value and
functionality. The application layer for Android, BlackBerry, iOS,
Windows Phone, etc. mobile devices has become a clear target for
hackers and is subject to both vulnerability-based attacks which
exploit programming flaws as well as a new array of
reverse-engineering and tampering attacks, such as malware, which
compromise overall application integrity. 
Mobile device security and appl
ication management measures need to be
augmented by proven mobile app security strategies, including
application hardening. Today's global hackers can easily disarm the
various layers of an organization's mobile security framework, such
as jailbreak detection or authentication logic, enabling the theft of
sensitive user credentials to commit fraud and inflict damage
resulting in financial losses or brand compromise. App integrity
requirements to protect against malware insertion are paramount and
require security at the binary level to defend against app hacking
attacks and to enable organizations to deploy self-defending,
tamper-proof mobile apps.  
The webinar will address: 


 
--  The current threat landscape, including exploitations, and mobile
    malware, app reverse engineering and tampering;
--  How to ensure use of secure mobile applications;
--  How to target mobile security defense to protect not just the device,
    but the data and apps.

  
Webinar attendees will learn: 


 
--  Counter measures to thwart the top mobile application security
    threats;
--  How to separate fact from fiction concerning mobile malware and its
    threat to data and apps;
--  Why mobile device management and mobile application management require
    complementary security strategies to fully protect apps; and,
--  How to re-train organizational security teams to overcome the inherent
    challenges of managing, developing and securing mobile apps.
