AdaptiveMobile, a provider of mobile network security, launched its Messaging App Security-a new product that enables messaging applications to secure their user base from increasing volume and sophistication of threats. Messaging applications - such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Viber and Kik - have experienced exponential growth over the past few years and are forecast to see a threefold increase in message traffic, from almost 31 trillion in 2014, to 100 trillion by 2019 globally. As users rapidly turn to mobile messaging applications, criminals are making use of proven techniques to exploit this increasing user base - sending phishing spam, eliciting money from scam messages and hacking devices to obtain personal information - making consumers vulnerable to attack and damaging brand credibility.
AdaptiveMobile's Messaging App Security offers a RESTful API to messaging applications, providing a secure messaging experience for users. Through advanced threat detection algorithms, user reputation analysis, and traffic controls, Messaging App Security enables app providers to identify and block both new threats and those crossing over from conventional messaging.
