Its landmark solution is the Mobile Threat Protection feature that protects threats targeting mobile devices, apps and data networks in an enterprise. What makes the MTP unique is, unlike traditional security features that limit mobile capabilities, MTP works around the unique requirements and features of enterprises.
The solution works on three fronts; firstly, threat detection, in which it offers comprehensive threat detection and risk analysis, and is designed in a way that the solution can scale and adapt to new threats and continuous changes happening in the corporate environment. Secondly, it works in the threat management space wherein it puts a user in control of managing their entire mobile threat posture in a manner that they can align their security policies with the enterprise’s overall enterprise security strategy. Additionally, this feature also allows users to gain minor controls over their privacy settings and educates them about how they can stay compliant with the security policies, and avoid threat or attack in their environment. Lastly, the threat intelligence feature delivers actionable insights, such as automated alerting and real-time dashboard on active mobile threats and event information to people and systems that need it the most.
Since founding, Appthority has raised just over US $25 million in funding from a series of investors such as Trident Capital Cybersecurity, US Venture Partners, Correlation Ventures, and Venrock.
