Appscatter will scan an app portfolio for potetnial security risks

Mobile app distribution platform AppScatter Group PLC (LON:APPS) has launched a scanning service to highlight security weaknesses and to comply with GDPR regulations. 

The service enables appScatter platform users to address any potential security issues during their app maintenance programme. Existing and new customers can use the service for an additional subscription fee.

Philip Marcella, appScatter’s chief executive, said: "Data security is as important as ever.

"The new appScatter app security scanning service will provide users with critical security compliance information and has the ability to be a material standalone revenue stream for the company."

GDPR rules come into force on May 25 and require all EU organisations to protect people's personal data and show they have operational and technical procedures in place.

The appScatter Scanning Service will assist with this, at a relatively low cost, by allowing users of the Scanning Service to scan certain areas of app GDPR compliance and to identify any related potential areas of concern, the company said.

"Hackers are constantly improving their ability to find loopholes in the common frameworks and appScatter can assist by allowing the security of the systems to be analysed, looking at areas such as  weaknesses in stack security to ensure they are not outdated and looking at all frameworks and systems are up-to-date."
