NowSecure, the standards-based mobile app security and privacy software company, today announced a new NowSecure GitHub Action to integrate mobile app security testing into mobile app developer workflows directly inside GitHub repos.
Now developers can ensure the security and privacy of mobile apps as they build them to deliver high-quality, secure mobile app releases faster.
With more than 76 million developers, GitHub is the leading software development platform for millions of mobile app developers.
“Developers want to deliver innovative, high-quality mobile applications fast,” said NowSecure CEO Alan Snyder. “This means they need a developer-first, easy-to-use and accurate mobile app security solution that integrates directly into their dev workflows. We are excited to partner with GitHub to ensure developers have a friction-free path to coding their mobile apps with security built-in.”
The NowSecure Platform is said to enable fast, automated security testing of mobile apps inside the developer workflow in both on-demand and continuous testing configuration options.
Developers can request a mobile app security and privacy analysis at any time through the NowSecure GitHub Action and then receive detailed and accurate security issues directly into the GitHub Security tab as code scanning alerts.
To speed developer remediation, all issues include rich developer detail including severity, priority, evidence, remediation instructions, code examples and links to Apple iOS and Google Android developer documentation.
NowSecure Action for GitHub can test any Apple iOS or Google Android mobile app developed in any language or framework including Kotlin, Java, Swift, Objective-C, Apache Cordova, Flutter, Ionic, Java, jQueryMobile, Python, React Native, Xamarin and more.
It is a part of the comprehensive suite for mobile app security including NowSecure Platform for continuous security testing in the development pipeline.
Built on a foundation of standards and automation, NowSecure is said to support organisations to deliver secure mobile apps faster and by continuously monitoring their mobile app supply chains for risk.
The NowSecure Action is now available on GitHub.
