BETHESDA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 02/21/13 -- Arxan Technologies, the leading provider of software security solutions that protects the global App Economy, announced today its Vice President of Business Development Jukka Alanen, will be a featured speaker at AGC's 9th Annual West Coast InfoSec and Technology Growth Conference on Feb. 25 in San Francisco.
The panel discussion, titled, "Enterprise Mobile Applications," takes place at 10:15 a.m. at The Westin San Francisco Market Street and will be moderated by Alberto Yepez, managing director, Trident Capital.
Joining Alanen on the panel will be the following executives and mobile security visionaries:
The session will outline a comprehensive view of enterprise app development and key security requirements organizations need to understand before deploying the apps. The panel of mobile security leaders will also address emerging mobile app security concerns and best practices to defend against hackers and other attacks.
According to the Forrsights Networks And Telecommunication Survey conducted by Forrester, "enterprises now list mobile and app security among their highest priorities, with 46 percent indicating that improving or implementing mobile security was a 'high' priority over the next 12 months. Another 22 percent deemed this move to be 'critical'." The survey also revealed that, "most firms are worried about device security (49 percent) and securing apps (48 percent) when it comes to developing apps and managing mobile devices."
As enterprises struggle with how to embrace the rising BYOD adoption, new management, control and security mechanisms need to be defined to protect the digital enterprise. Application protection of the mobile app itself is therefore a key component of today's security regime. Building application level integrity right into the app to detect tampering and react to a new generation of internal and external threats in the mobile enterprise is a necessary layer of defense. The mobile enterprise requires internal protection of apps, in real-time, as well as necessary static defenses, to construct a modern day security perimeter.
