About this webinar

Does your mobile DevOps team have an automated approach to ensuring your app is protected and secure each time you release it? In this webinar, Gen Citro, Enterprise Solutions Architect here at Bitrise, discusses why doing just that is critical, with special guest and mobile security expert Karen Hsu, SVP of Mobile DevOps & Security Solutions at Appdome.

Appdome is a cyber defense automation platform for Android and iOS apps. Bitrise partners with Appdome to ensure our customers have the right tools to ensure their apps are secure.

Almost every study on mobile apps shows a significant growth in usage and impact. An increase in app usage however means apps are more vulnerable to cyber attacks. Within hours of a mobile app’s release, hackers attack the app and by the time fraud is identified in transactions, it’s too late. While every organization aspires to a predictable software development cycle, the challenge is delivering secure apps without disrupting or delaying that predictable cycle.
