BETHESDA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 -- Arxan Technologies, a leading provider of software security solutions that protect the global App Economy, today announced it will participate in two mobile application security webinars as part of an Application Security Summit.
Taking place Nov. 14-15, the online Application Security Summit includes today's leading information security experts who will provide key insights on how to manage and secure applications, especially as mobile apps continue to proliferate a growing Global App Economy.
Enterprises such as financial services institutions are deploying applications to run critical processes or deliver services through Web, client or mobile apps. The application layer now hosts tremendous value and functionality and is being targeted by hackers. In conjunction with network or device security, application security has increasingly become a leading requirement not only for achieving the highest operational efficiency, but also to launch innovative offerings without being exposed to major threats and risks.
"ABI Research shows that the global market for mobile application security will be worth $398 million by the end of 2012. This includes revenues for paid apps, partnerships with manufacturers and operators, white label deals, and dataset sales. To date, ABI Research calculates that there have been over 130 billion downloads of mobile security apps."(1)
The Nov. 14 panel session on mobile application security strategies for the financial services market will discuss the unique security challenges faced by the financial services market.
As the application security framework has now extended to the mobile platform, risk mitigation requires both vulnerability-based solutions, which address programming flaws as well as multi-OS application hardening/shielding solutions given that mobile apps can reside outside the network or device perimeter. The emerging threat vectors which target the integrity of the mobile app itself, such as reversing and tampering, are becoming much more prevalent. This panel of application security experts will explore holistic mobile application security measures to guard against fraud as they roll-out new mobile solutions for the financial services market.
Panel Session: Mobile Application Security Strategies for Financial Services
Panelists: John Stevens, internal chief technology officer, Cigital, James Lynn, practice principal - Fortify on Demand & Mobile Security Services, HP Enterprise Security, and Kevin Morgan, vice president of engineering and chief technology officer, Arxan
Moderator: Derek Brink, research fellow, Aberdeen Group
