Cyber attacks are part of our everyday discussions and most likely will continue to be present throughout the next 12-18 months. With the rise in nation state attacks, and consistent expansion of IOT tools developers have to stay focused on the prescience of cyber threats. For those who followed our #DataPrivacyWeek on our social platforms, we explained that our personal lives are very much intertwined with our work lives, with many folks working remotely, we are more likely to be part of those data breaches we read in the news, as a side effect of network security risks. In this article we will dive into the primary reasons your team can benefit from PreEmptive to protect your applications.
While we were focused on supply chain attacks, ransomware threats, we overlooked another but equally prominent risk – mobile app breaches. There were over 200 BILLION mobile application downloads in 2021 and that number will most likely increase as we progress through 2022. This means, if you’re a programmer developing an app or creating a program that consists of custom code, securing your work is more important than ever. Here are the top 3 reasons why you should use PreEmptive to add a security layer to your applications:
Reason 3: Protecting Your Hard Work
We understand the countless hours that go into coding, whether that was spent on debugging, creating or troubleshooting your code’s infrastructure, it takes hard work. Many developers have projects that have been in the works for lengths at a time and have firm deadlines to meet. So when a project is complete it feels like gold! We tend to concentrate on completing our projects and ensuring that functionality/usability is up to standard. But, security is often an afterthought. PreEmptive In-App security features have been helping programmers prevent, detect, and respond to attacks without breaking or slowing down your applications – giving you a peace of mind throughout development. Sure, we all want to complete our projects on time or earlier than expected, but if we treat our projects like we treat our phones by putting a lock on it, then that finish line will look even sweeter.
Reason 2: Knowing the Functionality of Your Security
Data breaches are a hot topic, so searching for the right security platform has become even more of a priority. One of the factors when searching for the right security toolset – how does it actually work? PreEmptive has a layered approach when it comes to protecting your data. Think of it as building your perfect sandwich starting with the bread (obfuscation), adding the meat (renaming code), then the veggies – lettuce (string encryption), tomato (control flow) and more, topping it off with the condiments (active runtime checks) that monitors tampering, debugs, and more. Now that you know what’s in the perfect “security sandwich,” it’s imperative that you continue to test and secure after each build. This will allow you to have the confidence in your security application.
Reason 1: Becoming another Data Breach Statistic
Every month there is another data breach that is brought to our attention. Which makes you really think, are you choosing the right security platform? How do you know this platform is the right one? Assessing the needs of your company/organization or projects is the first step, next researching security options. Some promise to be “the leading” security platform or the “number one,” but PreEmptive has been in the biz since 1996. That’s over 20 years of securing your applications! Not only do we have the experience, we have hundreds of fortune 500 companies who use PreEmptive, Charles Schwab, FedEx, Census Bureau, Microsoft to name a few. If these companies trust our software, we guarantee that by using us, you won’t become another data breach victim.
