Jailbreak and Root Detection - Is Your Mobile App a Sleuth

October 27, 2016
Globally, depending on who’s stats you believe, somewhere around 10 percent of iOS devices are jailbroken and 27% of android devices are rooted. It's virtually impossible to prevent rooting and jailbreaking. If it could be done without causing technical or political issues I'm sure Google and Apple would have done it. So when it comes to jailbreaking and rooting – prevention isn't the key, it's detection and response.

Anti-tampering helps thwart mobile app logic modifications that make your app operate differently than how you designed it. Anti-tampering is like the MC Hammer of mobile apps. It says to attackers that want to modify your logic, "U can’t touch this." Go ahead and click, you know you want to.

Data at Rest Encryption for Mobile Apps: Because People Want Your Data

October 03, 2016
Mobile data at rest encryption is critical to securing a mobile app. That debate is long since over. Mobile devices hold sensitive data and people want that data regardless if you think it’s valuable or not. We all know it, so It blows me away when I see that there are still some mobile apps being developed without data at rest encryption.
