By 2016, over 350 million people will use their smartphones for work. These employee-owned devices are running more and more mobile applications for both personal and business purposes — applications that can gain access to a company's internal network and data without an employer's knowledge.
The IBM Security AppScan Solution examines applications to detect potential security issues early in the development cycle -- where defects can be fixed quickly, minimizing cost and impact. Using AppScan, organizations will gain new capabilities to test native mobile applications and the server components of hybrid applications. Working with IBM Security Research, AppScan also provides extensive analysis of mobile operating system APIs -- to help identify mobile-specific security risks.
