Driven by exponential growth in the consumer market, new mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) are now entering the world of governments and companies. They open up opportunities to develop new applications on very large targets for citizens, customers, and already the first connected objects.

The advent of this new equipment is largely due to the success of application stores (Apps Store, Google Play, Windows Store ...) and very large scale deployments of of micro-applications.

These Apps fully exploit the interactive capabilities of the mobile devices. They enable new way to use smartphones and tablets. Most importantly, they are free, simple to use and efficient.

For administrations and corporations, if these developments are a source of opportunity, they generate, at the same time, new needs in terms of security and confidence because the mobility services expose organizations, their employees, partners and customers to new threats.

The origin of these threats lies in several points:
1. The nature of the new terminals, more open and communicative, are used for business purposes but also private
2. App stores are more or less secure,
3. Apps are easy to copy, clone or divert for hackers,
4. Consumers are not inhibited by the risk of downloading malicious apps,
5. Conventional antivirus solutions are inadequate with the reactivity of hackers, their exponential production of clones and other malware.
6. Users do not control personal or professional data handled by Apps: Phone numbers, SMS, agenda, payment and card details, health data, professional and personal files, pictures, recordings, etc.

The threat increases when apps establish connections and perform actions on the mobile device, often without control regarding the compliance of the security policy of corporate information systems with which the device interconnects.

The "Apps + Store" model induces new constraints on the IS and extends the scope and the security issues.

In the field of mobile security, Pradeo has designed and developed a behavioral analysis engine for mobile application, called "Trust Revealing".

For a given application, the engine reveals exhaustively actions performed by the application:
1. What connections the devices establishes,
2. What data the manipulates: user data (SMS, pictures, calendars, contacts, files, etc..), device data, application data,
3. What operations it performs: Sending data to a remote server, sending automatic SMS payment over unsecured connections, etc…

Thanks to Trust Revealing technology Pradeo offers to its customers a securing apps promise and a protection against attacks by cybercriminals made through
mobile applications available on public stores.

  1. 1. 1 New generation of security solutions dedicated to mobile and connected items apps Mobility and security needs … Driven by exponential growth in the consumer market, new mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) are now entering the world of governments and companies. They open up opportunities to develop new applications on very large targets for citizens, customers, and already the first connected objects. The advent of this new equipment is largely due to the success of application stores general public (Apps Store, Google Play, Windows Store ...) and very large scale deployment of the concept of micro-application. These Apps fully exploit the interactive capabilities of the mobile devices. They make appear new way to use smartphones and tablets. Most importantly, they are ready to use, simple and intuitive. For administrations and companies, if these developments are a source of opportunity, they generate, at the same time, new needs in terms of security and confidence because the mobility services expose organizations, their employees and their customers, to new threats. The origin of these threats lies in several points: - The nature of the new terminals, more open and communicative, used for business purposes but also private, - Public app store more or less secure, - The Apps are easy to copy, clone or divert for hackers, - Some gullible consumers without inhibition or restraint against the risk of downloading malicious apps, - Conventional antivirus solutions inadequate with the reactivity of hackers and their exponential production of clones and other malware antivirus solutions. - Sensitive local, personal or professional data, handled through Apps, uncontrolled by the user: phone numbers, SMS, diary, mobile payment, health data, professional and personal files, photos, etc. As part of professional practice, the threat increases as the Apps established connections and perform actions on the mobile device, often without control regarding the respect of the security policy of the Information System. The "Apps + Store" model induces new constraints on the IS and extends the scope and the security issues.

Pradeo’s technology has a truly global reach. It is protected by patents and is unique among historical security actors. To date, none have the ability to reveal the behavior of Apps with depth and completeness of Pradeo. Unlike traditional antivirus do not provide effective protection against malwares, Pradeo brings major technological breakthroughs in mobile security: protection from the 1st download and customization of security policy. Although it is a young company, Pradeo has already acquired early references that legitimize and validate its development priorities and the relevance of its solutions: Sanofi, Bull, French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, La Poste, Radio France, Leroy Merlin ...
