Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR APPLICATION SECURITY ANALYSIS
Abstract:
Systems and methods for analyzing applications for risk are provided. In the example method, the applications reside on a mobile device that is configurable to access an enterprise system. The example method includes evaluating each of a plurality of applications variously for privacy, data leakage, and malicious behavior. The example method also includes calculating a risk score for each of the plurality of applications based on the evaluating; and automatically remediating (e.g., quarantining) the applications, of the plurality of applications, for which the risk score meets or exceeds a risk score threshold. The method may evaluate all of the applications residing on a mobile device. The method may include grouping application behaviors, for each of the applications, that indicate an increased risk into groups comprising various combinations of a privacy risk, a data leakage risk, an account takeover risk, a device takeover risk, and a malware risk.
