Veracode MARS Reveals Mobile Application Risks Relevant to Enterprise BYOD
Employees are more productive using popular, publically available Android and iOS applications. IT and security teams must protect their enterprise from the risks in popular mobile applications. Veracode’s Mobile Application Reputation Service (MARS) simplifies how enterprises create BYOD application security policies and how they protect sensitive data by choosing mobile applications that pose the lowest risk.
MARS detects and quantifies the enterprise risk posed by mobile applications supplied by public app stores, enterprise development teams or commercial developers. With MARS enterprises can:
Intelligence Directory – Understand which mobile application behaviors put sensitive data at risk

Risk Profiling – Detect which mobile applications violate enterprise policy quickly and efficiently.
Enterprises can analyze new and updated mobile applications supplied by:
App Protection for Devices – Act to mitigate risk and protect data by integrating application intelligence into enterprise mobility management solutions.
Effective enterprise BYOD policies require both intelligence and enforcement. MARS intelligence can be integrated with a variety of enterprise mobility management solutions for policy, including:
