Appdome and Microsoft Azure DevOps Partner to Enhance Mobile App Security

The integration enables seamless integration of powerful cyber defenses into Android and iOS apps, enhancing protection for phone users worldwide.

In a move set to transform the mobile app security landscape, Appdome, the leading provider of mobile app defense solutions, has announced the integration of its Cyber Defense Automation Platform with Microsoft Azure DevOps. This collaboration brings continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) capabilities to the Appdome platform, enabling development teams to automate the build, test, and deployment of their applications. With the integration of Azure DevOps, Appdome aims to bolster the delivery of secure mobile apps worldwide.

The integration offers significant benefits for phone users by simplifying the implementation of robust cybersecurity measures in Android and iOS apps. Traditional manual methods of incorporating cyber defenses have often been complex, slow, and prone to errors. Appdome’s automation platform eliminates these challenges, streamlining the delivery process and accelerating release times.

Appdome’s comprehensive range of cybersecurity defenses covers various aspects of app protection, including runtime application self-protection (RASP), code obfuscation, mobile data encryption, jailbreak detection, root detection, and prevention of man-in-the-middle attacks. The platform also offers on-device anti-malware, anti-fraud, anti-cheat, and anti-bot solutions. By leveraging these defenses, developers can build secure Android and iOS apps that safeguard users’ data and privacy.

With mobile apps becoming the preferred method for consumers to interact with brands, development teams are under increasing pressure to frequently update and improve their apps to remain competitive. The Appdome-Azure DevOps partnership addresses this need by providing a cyber defense solution for mobile app development that integrates seamlessly with modern DevOps pipelines. By incorporating cyber defenses into each build and release, development teams can meet end-users’ expectations and deliver the protection they demand.

A recent survey conducted by Appdome highlighted the growing demand for enhanced mobile app security. The survey revealed that 94% of global consumers would actively support a brand that prioritizes protection against security threats, fraud, and malware risks. Moreover, 68% of respondents indicated that they would abandon brands that fail to offer sufficient protection.

Karen Hsu, SVP of Mobile DevOps and Security Solutions at Microsoft, emphasized the significance of this collaboration, stating, “Azure Pipelines is a key development platform for mobile apps, and developers using it need to be able to build security protections into these apps rapidly from within the platform.” The partnership with Appdome enables brands and their development teams to address the growing demands for stronger mobile app security while leveraging the power of Azure Pipelines.

For developers seeking to leverage the capabilities of Appdome’s Build 2-Secure Extension for Microsoft Azure Pipelines, detailed instructions and information can be found in the provided knowledge base article.

With Appdome and Microsoft Azure DevOps joining forces, the mobile app industry takes a significant step towards enhancing cybersecurity measures. This integration empowers developers to integrate robust cyber defenses seamlessly into their Android and iOS apps, ensuring a safer and more secure experience for phone users worldwide.
