Intertrust Recognized in the Gartner Market Guide for In-App Protection for the Third Year in a Row
August 6, 2019 — SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Intertrust was named a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s July 2019 Market Guide for In-App Protection* for the third time in a row. According to the report, “Self-defending applications become crucial as modern architectures migrate software logic to the client side. Security and risk management leaders must take due care in protecting their application clients to avoid turning a promising software design trend into a security failure.”
“By 2022 at least 50% of successful attacks against clickjacking and mobile apps could have been prevented by using in‑app protection.”
“We believe that our inclusion in the 2019 Market Guide for In-App Protection for the third time in a row validates our position as a top market innovator in application security,” said Bill Horne, general manager of Intertrust Secure Systems. “Mobile apps are now a necessary component of virtually any business model, but there are tangible risks to deploying applications into these kinds of zero-trust environments. The market is embracing the need for security solutions to address this problem. The growth over the past couple of years in this space has really been phenomenal.”
In-app protection technologies, like whiteCryption® Code Protection™, help protect applications from the inside without having to install additional components on the device running the application. Many industries with high-value applications like financial services, healthcare, media and entertainment, insurance, and government often publish consumer applications to commercial app stores where they are susceptible to cloning, theft, fraud and other sorts of attacks.
“We are proud that the constant innovation in our security solutions continues to receive industry recognition and helps maintain Intertrust’s leadership in application shielding. We continue to provide our customers and partners with the necessary tools and solutions to keep their applications and businesses protected,” added Horne.
Intertrust is showcasing the company’s industry leading application shielding and device identity solutions at Black Hat on Aug. 7 and Aug. 8, at Booth #566, featuring demonstrations of its market-leading whiteCryption® and Seacert® solutions.
