Appealing, a leading cloud-based, end-to-end mobile app protection solution by INKA Networks, announced it has been identified as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2022. It has been named in the application shielding category. The recognition comes after a series of recent customer wins, product innovations, and industry accolades.
The report covers multiple technologies like policy-as-code, SaaS security posture management, SBOM, API security testing, and API threat protection among others. It looks at two broad families of app shielding functionality – hardening and anti-tampering – while pointing out that “adoption of app shielding is experiencing growth for consumer-facing mobile in industry verticals such as gaming apps, financial services, online retail, healthcare, insurance and automotive.” It also provides drivers, obstacles, and user recommendations.
Emphasizing the importance of application security, Gartner observes, “Security and risk management leaders need to adopt a composable view of application security. They should focus on orchestrating multiple application security innovations to serve as a coherent defense, rather than relying on a set of stand-alone products.”
