Offer secure mobile eGovernment apps with In-App Protection

Mobile eGovernment initiatives give a unique interaction with the public through citizen-oriented apps such as;

Health and safety apps

Driver license apps

Tax service apps

eID apps

Transportation or transit information apps

Passport or life certificate apps

What about safety and security?

Mobile apps are increasingly sources of fraud and breaches, and app security should be one of the topmost concerns of government officials when launching security-sensitive and citizen-oriented apps that reside on end-users’ mobile devices.

The sensitive nature of personal unique identifiers makes them an ideal target for attackers.

When should you consider adopting In-App Protection?

  • The app carries sensitive data or can be used for transactions.
  • The app is public and published on a commercial app store.
  • The app has a significant portion of the software logic that resides on the device.

Why app security is crucial for citizen-oriented apps

In-App Protection by Promon SHIELD™ makes your citizen-oriented apps more resistant to scalable malware, intrusion, tampering and reverse engineering of the app.

In addition, it provides protection of sensitive app data and collects information to both identify attack vectors and help prevent future attacks. It is a critical link once your apps go live in untrusted environments (Operating Systems).

Based on in-depth monitoring and control of the operating system, Promon’s In-App Protection solution offers a proactive and whitelist-based technology, protecting both the app itself as well as app inputs and outputs.

Your apps can be quickly uploaded and secured in minutes using our integration tool – or an SDK that is easily integrated into the app.

Use case example: Mobile eID app

Swedish Verisec announced a free version of its Freja eID – giving businesses, authorities and organisations access to a completely free of charge eID. Promon’s In-App Protection technology provides an added layer of security by protecting the Freja ID app and its users. 

Use case example: Mobile driver license app

A European country is developing a driving licence app.
In this new app, citizens will be able to access their driving licence via their mobile phone by entering a code or by using their fingerprint. It makes it quick and easy for the citizens to present proof of identity via his or her mobile phone.

By utilising In-App Protection, both Verisec and the developers behind the official driver license app are able to detect and prevent intrusions, including reverse-engineering, secure sensitive app data and protect their users against malicious attacks.
