Detect and Eliminate Mobile Threats Around the World
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 provides discovery across all major app stores as well as 170+ unofficial app stores, including focused coverage of high-risk stores and regions for brand impersonation, malware, and fraud. In addition to unparalleled coverage of third-party app stores worldwide, RiskIQ incorporates a unique source of “feral app” binaries, or mobile apps collected outside of dedicated mobile app stores, via drive-by download for example. With this comprehensive mobile presence knowledge organizations have the unparalleled ability to:
