Bluebox Security Raises Bar for Mobile Security With Dynamic App Integrity

New Layer of Defense Protects Mobile Applications and Corporate Data in Compromised Environments

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2015) - Bluebox Security® today announced availability of the Winter 2015 release of its mobile data security and management solution. The only provider to enable self-defending mobile apps, Bluebox Security's latest release adds another layer of protection for mobile applications. Dynamic App Integrity continuously hardens any mobile application with enterprise grade protections and deterrents that are context aware, ensuring corporate data security even when operating in a compromised or malicious environment.

The growing number of mobile vulnerabilities and explosion of mobile malware in conjunction with end-user error has created a perfect storm for mobile data compromise. A recent report by HP found that 75 percent of mobile applications do not use proper encryption techniques when storing data on mobile devices, leaving unencrypted data accessible to an attacker. Without context awareness, mobile apps and the data they contain, have limited defenses in an increasingly hostile environment.

Dynamic App Integrity adds an extra layer of defense, putting applications on the offensive and enabling them to detect and defend against any environmental threats. Bluebox Security's solution safeguards corporate data, at rest or in transit, within mobile apps. With Bluebox, enterprises can trust mobile apps, even in compromised environments, gain mobile threat intelligence in real time and provide an invisibly secure experience that enables mobile productivity.

"Mobile application security has lagged behind as legacy security providers focused unsuccessfully on trying to harden devices," said Caleb Sima, co-founder and CEO, Bluebox Security. "But businesses need to know that their users can operate safely, even in a compromised mobile environment. Bluebox is the only mobile security solution to offer a multi-layered defense for any mobile application to automatically detect and respond to threats in real time. By protecting the apps themselves while in production, IT and security professionals can take control back without sacrificing user productivity."

The Bluebox Security Winter 2015 release adds:

  • Dynamic App Integrity further expands mobile application self-defense capabilities to make apps truly "smart." By adding an extra perimeter of defense around the app, Bluebox makes the app aware of its environment and enables it to detect app tampering and device vulnerabilities that threaten corporate data. Mobile honeypots deter attacks by prolonging the time and effort needed to compromise apps, while automatic remediation thwarts attacks in real time. 

  • Enhanced Bluebox Portal simplifies workflows, allowing administrators to easily manage, distribute and monitor apps and devices in the enterprise. The improved dashboard provides visibility into mobile behavior and real-time threat detection, allowing IT and security professionals to tune security policies based on actual usage.

  • Updated Android and iOS apps employ mobile best practices to provide an unobtrusive user experience for easy download and use of Bluebox-secured apps from the Bluebox App Catalog. Streamlined usability improves mobile productivity and self-service to reduce help desk call volume.
