Sword & Shield Aims to Improve Mobile App Security
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. Sept. 21, 2017 – Sword & Shield Enterprise Security, a leading national cybersecurity firm based in Knoxville, Tennessee, now offers detailed mobile application security assessments for Android, iOS, and Windows phone or tablet-based apps to determine their vulnerabilities and how sensitive information can be compromised through them.
“While apps are a convenient and valuable way to connect with people, they introduce additional routes in which attackers can gain access to everything from user information to your business’ sensitive data and network infrastructure,” said John McNeely, president and CEO of Sword & Shield Enterprise Security. “Our mobile app security assessment involves a thorough process conducted by experts, and offers a comprehensive report that produces a helpful roadmap to address vulnerabilities. This greatly reduces the risk of an attacker compromising your app, your users and your business.”
Following the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Application Security Verification Standard, Sword & Shield’s certified Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC) mobile device security analysts apply their depth and breadth of information security and compliance knowledge to provide a detailed security analysis. This covers the complete mobile app environment, from the app running on the device to the back-end APIs and servers that facilitate the app and store data related to the app.
“We take a ‘no stone unturned’ approach to our assessments to maximize the value of the information our clients receive,” McNeely said. “Ultimately we want business owners to feel confident that once they have our assessment—and put the information we provide to use—their app is as secure as possible.”
