Appdome and GitHub Unite Forces, Transforming Mobile App Security for CIOs

Appdome’s integration with GitHub brings a game-changing shift in mobile app security, empowering CIOs to easily build and deploy robust cyber defenses within their Android and iOS applications.

Appdome, the leading Cyber Defense Automation platform in the mobile app economy, has made a groundbreaking announcement. The company has successfully integrated its platform with GitHub, the complete developer platform renowned for building, scaling, and delivering software.

As part of the Appdome Dev2Cyber Agility Partner Initiative, this integration leverages GitHub Actions to accelerate the delivery of secure mobile apps on a global scale. Notably, GitHub users can now take advantage of Appdome’s configuration-as-code simplicity directly within the GitHub platform, enabling them to incorporate a comprehensive range of cyber defenses into Android and iOS apps.

Appdome’s cutting-edge cyber defense automation platform eliminates complexities and expedites release times by seamlessly integrating cyber security defenses into iOS and Android apps. These defenses include runtime application self-protection (RASP), code obfuscation, mobile data encryption, jailbreak detection, root detection, prevention of man-in-the-middle attacks, on-device anti-malware, anti-fraud measures, anti-cheat functionality, anti-bot capabilities, and more. By automating the implementation of cyber defenses, Appdome addresses the pressing need for technology platforms that streamline the delivery of these protections in mobile apps, enabling development teams to keep pace with modern DevOps pipelines.

Tom Tovar, Co-Creator and CEO of Appdome, emphasized the importance of this innovation in meeting the expectations of mobile consumers and staying competitive in the market. He stated, “Our recent global survey shows that mobile consumers’ preferred way to interact with brands, which increases the urgency for development teams to create and update apps frequently to remain competitive. They’re working in an environment that is continuous, agile, and fast-moving.” Tovar further highlighted the significance of a cyber defense solution that integrates seamlessly with mobile development best practices and tooling, allowing development teams to deliver the desired protections in iOS and Android apps with every build and release.

The demand for robust mobile app security has never been higher among global consumers. Appdome’s recent survey, titled “Global Consumer Expectations of Mobile App Security,” revealed that 94% of respondents would promote a brand if its mobile apps offered protection against security threats, fraud, and malware risks. Furthermore, 68% indicated that they would abandon brands that failed to provide adequate protection.

Karen Hsu, SVP of Mobile DevOps and Security Solutions, acknowledged the significance of GitHub as a vital development platform for mobile apps. She stated, “GitHub is a key development platform for mobile apps, and developers using GitHub need to be able to build security protections into these apps rapidly from within the platform.” The integration of Appdome with GitHub now empowers brands and their development teams to meet the growing demands of mobile users for stronger protection.

With the integration of GitHub Actions into the Appdome Dev2Cyber Agility Partner Initiative, Appdome has once again proven its commitment to revolutionizing mobile app security. By providing developers with a seamless and efficient way to incorporate robust cyber defenses into their Android and iOS apps, Appdome enables them to deliver secure mobile experiences that inspire consumer confidence and loyalty.
