Mobile developers are tasked with writing code and publishing builds faster than ever before. You don’t need to go far to find stats that show developers are pushing code with increased frequency – measured in minutes, hours, and days rather than weeks and months. As a result, security can become an afterthought – or something handled by someone else on the other side of the office, on another floor, or elsewhere in the organization.
But, a recent Ponemon study on IoT and mobile apps shows that mobile app security is top-of-mind for many organizations. Sixty percent of respondents reported a data breach resulting from an insecure mobile app, and 39 percent of organizations wait until production to test, driving up the cost to fix flaws considerably.
