ANDROID APP SECURITY INDEX

Only 1% of Android™ applications have properly protected source code!

  • 99% of applications are exposed to security threats.
  • Back-end databases, credit card numbers, employee information, social security numbers, and proprietary source code are at risk.
  • Are you in the 1% – or in the 99%? We found several leaders in technology were not!

If you are an executive concerned with security of your mobile app and the data you aim to protect, our App Security Index shows you how even top mobile app companies and big technology brand names are missing simple security measures in their mobile apps.

Stay one step ahead of hackers, your competition and the big guys by making security a top priority for your mobile app.
