Today AGT, a leading turnkey cybersecurity solutions provider, and NowSecure, the leading mobile app security and privacy software solutions company, announced a partnership to deliver a new cybersecurity resilient framework globally. As part of the new cybersecurity framework, AGT will now distribute and implement the award-winning NowSecure mobile app security and privacy solutions throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Mobile apps dominate nearly 70% of digital time spent vs. desktop and web, but benchmarks of public app stores show 85% of mobile apps have security issues and 70% leak private data. With mobile apps at the heart of digital transformation sweeping through enterprises and government agencies, the more than 5 million apps available in commercial app stores and millions more mobile apps built for use by employees and partners place users and organizations alike at risk.
Pressures of market competition and customer demand drive volume and velocity of mobile app releases, frequently leaving security and privacy behind. NowSecure offers the world’s most advanced mobile app security and mobile risk management solutions that provide the speed, coverage, accuracy and efficiency necessary to address these challenges at scale. AGT will leverage NowSecure solutions within its cybersecurity resilient framework to ensure the security and privacy of mobile app portfolios.
