As enterprises develop more custom applications – many of them mobile apps as part of a mobile-first strategy – in-house developers are increasingly at risk of unwittingly using open-source code rife with vulnerabilities.
Developing custom apps allows a business to differentiate itself from competitors by offering customers, whether internal users or consumers, a better mobile experience.
Unlike traditional software development, mobile applications add layers of complexity, particularly when companies create server-side web APIs or client-side native rich clients. That’s also true when integrating software across other applications and systems.
