We also offer App Penetration Testing and Leaky App Analysis for a complete diagnosis.

Fortify-IT Mobile Threat Defense Protects Against the Following:

Fortify-IT Mobile Threat Defense protects from the following common threats:

  • App Vulnerabilities – Failure to update software and applications regularly allows cyber criminals to exploit your user’s cellphone weaknesses with malicious malware. Further, they can gain control of the mobile device data through granted elevated privileges. For example, the applications term can provide the software company access to your contacts and be a target for phishers.
  • User-Granted Privileges – Unfortunately, most end-users do not read the terms before approving them. As a result, most app developers will request greater privileges than necessary. This is a ticking time bomb for vulnerable phone operating systems and apps.
  • Sideloaded Applications – Sideloaded applications include any app not downloaded through the official app/play store and have not passed the security inspection guidelines. Unfortunately, these “free” applications often have malicious code to harvest user data, banking credentials, personal pictures, messages, or corporate data.
  • Malicious Devices Profiles/SSL Certifications – This threat is commonly utilized to conduct Man in The Middle (MiTM) attacks on any cryptographically secured data leaving the mobile device. This is a common way for attackers to harvest usernames/passwords and sensitive data.
  • Rogue Networks – Attackers can set up wireless access points (WAP) and give them the same name as a legitimate network. When the end-user accesses the WAP, the hacker installs a device profile that allows all data to be routed and decrypted via the MiTM attack that occurred on the user’s phone.

Most importantly, both levels of Fortify-IT provide continuous mobile threat monitoring, analysis, and response.
