FinDEVr Live: AppSHIELD SDK from SnoopWall Helps Defend Against Malicious Apps

SnoopWall_homepage_FinDEVr2015

snoopwall.com | snoopwall.com/blog | @SnoopWallSecure

SnoopWall_FinDEVr2015_logoIt’s the year of mCrime (mobile crime), and all banking apps are easily eavesdropped on by ‘trusted apps’ that actually have malware allowed on iTunes, Google Play, and Microsoft App store. SnoopWall will present a live demo of this ‘breaking into my own banking account’ on mobile using a malicious Flashlight App. Then, you’ll learn about AppSHIELD SDK.

Increase adoption of your mobile app with AppSHIELD SDK
AppSHIELD SDK is the only solution to this problem that works. We’ll show how IBM Trusteer SDK and INAUTH SDK and Arxan are easily circumvented by cyber criminals intending to steal consumer PII. If you see AppSHIELD SDK in action (in 95+ financial institutions), you’ll want it in your banking app to protect your consumers and your brand.

Key takeaways:

  • All mobile banking apps are insecure and hackable
  • Many trusted apps exploit these mBanking vulnerabilities
  • Our AppSHIELD SDK is the only solution to make mBanking apps bulletproof against mCrime
