Understand Digital Threats in Mobile Apps and App Stores
The size, complexity, and dynamic nature of the global app store ecosystem make it increasingly difficult for brands to monitor their mobile presence and protect their customers from fraud. Once published, mobile apps can rapidly proliferate from official stores throughout the app store ecosystem, spreading to new stores and web download locations without the developer’s knowledge or consent.
RiskIQ Mobile Threats enables organizations to monitor and fully manage their mobile presence across the world. Our technology detects unauthorized apps designed to divert users, distribute malware, and steal customer or company data. With a single click, organizations can now remove unauthorized apps from all stores, globally.

RiskIQ Mobile Threats uses virtual user technology to scan and search mobile app stores and download app binary files, looking for official apps, apps that look like official apps, and rogue apps that reference your brand or organization. While most official apps appear in the most popular app stores (Google Play and Apple App Store) there are many other app stores that have been created to provide apps outside of those official ecosystems. These include mobile device manufacturers (like Samsung and Amazon) as well as other, smaller stores. These are often not monitored, and official app binaries (the files that make up the app) are copied and pasted to these other stores.
Because these less known stores are not monitored, official apps can be copied (scraped) and uploaded to these stores. Because of the manual process, apps are often out of date, resulting in potential vulnerabilities to the user’s device. The apps are also not always vetted, so the code may have been compromised to inject malware, spyware, or other malicious software.
The lack of monitoring and visibility into the app stores and app code can lead to customers’ data being compromised and trust and loyalty lost.
