There are over 1.6 million Android apps in the Google Play store. Over 1.5 million apps are in the Apple App Store. For mobile app hackers, today’s mobile environment has never offered a more fertile landscape to phish for user information or implant mobile malware. And never in history has more information been available to exploit.
To understand how mobile application development platforms, frameworks and mobile backend as a service (MBaaS) solutions can provide safeguards to protect your users, Kony has published the white paper - Kony Security Brief: Addressing the OWASP Mobile Top 10 with Kony MobileFabric and Frameworks.
The publication focuses on the OWASP Mobile Top 10 which examines the mobile application threat landscape and is published by OWASP, a not-for-profit organization focused on improving the security of software. Kony’s white paper provides an in-depth look of how Kony has built in protocols to protect your users (and your company from liability) from these vulnerabilities.
Included in the document are the ways Kony has built its platforms to protect users from the OWASP Mobile Top 10 threats:
- Insufficient Transport Layer Protection
- Poor Authorization and Authentication
- Improper Session Handling
- Insecure Data Storage
- Unintended Data Leakage
- Broken Cryptography
- Client Side Injection
- Lack of Binary Protections
- Security Decisions Via Untrusted Inputs
If you are like most of us, you haven’t drilled down into how the app development tools you use actually mobile threat protection. And you don’t have to be a Kony customer to get value from reading the white paper and learning their approach to protect users from vulnerabilities. After reading the paper you’ll probably immediately start researching your own development platform and backend services to see how well it really protects your users.

The white paper is available as a downloadable PDF
which you can read and share with other with others in your team.
Are you paying more taxes than you have to as a developer or freelancer? The IRS is certainly not going to tell you about a deduction you failed to take, and your accountant is not likely to take the time to ask you about every deduction you’re entitled to. As former IRS Commissioner Mark Everson admitted, “If you don’t claim it, you don’t get it.
