“Given the growth and mindshare of the DocuSign brand we needed a way to monitor app stores for rogue and copycat apps that could place our company at risk and damage our hard earned reputation as the trusted global standard for Digital Transaction Management,” said Eoin Hinchy, Director of Information Security at DocuSign. “RiskIQ's unique technology continuously monitors all app stores to discover and inspect mobile assets that reference DocuSign so we can continue to protect our trusted brand in the marketplace.”

RiskIQ and Mobile

RiskIQ is the only continuous discovery, inventory and monitoring security platform that interacts with digital assets as a real human would to detect threats that elude traditional web crawling and scanning methods. Powered by a global infrastructure and associated APIs, RiskIQ gathers continuous, real-time intelligence on threats that put an organization's customers and brand at risk. RiskIQ continuously scans app stores and mobile apps to detect malware, application tampering, brand impersonation, and to safeguard brand reputation.

“Monitoring the top four mobile app stores for brand risk is just the tip of the iceberg for our customers like DocuSign, since there are nearly 100 other smaller stores that are routinely seeded with rogue and copycat apps,” said Elias Manousos, CEO and co-founder of RiskIQ. “Our ability to continuously discover, inventory and assess security risks associated with mobile apps that bear a company's brand or sub brands provides the intelligence they need to keep their Digital Footprint free of threats that target customers and employees.”
