An increasing number of companies are providing their customers with ease of use mobile applications (Apps), including financial institutions for users to access their online accounts. Mobile Apps are available from trusted Apps stores (such as Apple iTunes store), not so trusted marketplaces, and from general websites on the internet.
Criminals are turning to the mobile space producing mobile malware and fake or rogue mobile Apps. This can result in hijacked sessions, taking control of the mobile device, or man in the middle attacks.git
All companies should be concerned about the security and brand reputation issues around this type of criminal activity, even if the company does not yet have mobile apps, the criminals could still create and distribute an App claiming to be from the legitimate company.
SecureITLab would validate all mobile apps detected on 3rd party stores with the client before initiating any "cease and desist" and takedown orders. The takedown orders can be sent to us via multiple channels like email, telephone call, or via the client portal.
SecureITLab provides a comprehensive monitoring solution to monitor for rogue, unauthorised Apps, using the client's brand.
