To counter the emergence of malicious and unauthorized apps appearing on mobile app stores, RSA introduced the RSA FraudAction Anti Rogue App Service
designed to detect and take action against rogue mobile apps that attempt to serve up malware or phishing attacks.
The service is an anti-fraud solution designed to detect and shut down rogue mobile apps. By combining anti-fraud experts with a threat-detection infrastructure, RSA helps organizations obtain visibility into the mobile app landscape, giving their fraud teams the ability to understand this new threat vector.
RSA's new service helps organizations discover fraudulent mobile apps that are leveraging customer brands to infect end users or steal credentials. RSA's proactive approach helps ensure online app stores are constantly monitored and action is taken against rogue mobile app threats.
- Proactively manages risk to business by providing visibility into mobile app-based threats.
- Reduces fraud loss by shutting down rogue apps to help minimize impact of mobile app-based attacks to customer base.
- Provides comprehensive app store monitoring for all major app stores.
Dan Schiappa, RSA Senior Vice President, Identity & Data Protection said: "We're finding that organizations offering legitimate mobile apps used for online banking, retail, gaming and other functions aren't prepared and are mostly unaware of the mobile app threats lurking in app stores. Driven by RSA's experienced team of anti-fraud analysts, the RSA FraudAction Anti Rogue App Service is designed to help these organizations reduce fraud losses by monitoring for, rooting out and shutting down rogue apps before they can successfully exploit unknowing mobile consumers in an attempt to distribute malware and steal sensitive personal information for financial gain."
