Mobile devices have overtaken desktop devices as the leading means to access applications and the internet. The growing demand for mobile apps creates a need for developers to improve their processes and release new features at an unprecedented rate to stay ahead of the competition. Consequently, the development community embraces newer processes such as Agile and the culture of DevOps to produce their mobile applications much more quickly.

Modern software development cycles, which include a lot of automation and use of third-party code with backend API services, have broken the legacy security model for development, when there was plenty of time to look for and fix security issues manually before a product release. As a result, the risk of data security vulnerabilities in mobile apps and the potential for a breach of regulatory requirements are higher than ever. This is creating an imperative need to innovate the process for application security for mobile applications.
