ATLANTA, Dec. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — With high-profile cyber attacks continuing to erode consumer and enterprise trust, Kobiton and App-Ray have partnered to ensure that Kobiton is a highly secure mobile device lab that can also improve an app’s security.
The Kobiton platform, which provides developers and businesses access to real mobile devices and offers device lab management in one easy-to access cloud, will now help businesses detect known and potential security issues within their apps using App-Ray’s advanced mobile security analysis tools.
“Businesses can not only test on the latest devices, but benefit from a full security review of their mobile app as part of our partnership with App-Ray,” said Kevin Lee, Chief Executive Officer of Kobiton. “We are excited to give developers and businesses more tools to protect their apps and most importantly, their users.”
Through the partnership, mobile applications uploaded to the Kobiton test cloud will be scanned with App-Ray’s innovative technology, identifying vulnerabilities and alerting app owners so that they can better secure their app. Users will be notified and be better prepared to resolve potential issues faster, reducing risk for their users.
This scan, coupled with Kobiton’s ISO 27001 (ISMS) certification, makes Kobiton one of the safest mobile device labs available.
“We have extensive experience detecting vulnerabilities to hacking, data leaks and malicious code in iOS and Android apps,” explained Zsolt Nemeth, Founder and CEO of App-Ray. “Our fully-automated security analysis tool will ensure that apps tested on the Kobiton platform will be safe.”
He continued, “Through the partnership, we will also be able to help development teams release safe apps free of expensive security flaws that can compromise quality and reputation.”
