Promon recognized as a Sample Vendor

In the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Application Security, application shielding is defined as the technology that “serves to prevent and detect attacks such as tampering and reverse engineering. Application shielding is an in-app protection technology, meaning its capabilities are implemented directly within the application, rather than in-line or on the hosting system.” Gartner places a high emphasis on application shielding for “consumer-facing mobile applications in industry verticals such as financial services, online retail, healthcare, insurance and automotive.”

Promon is committed to providing exceptional solutions that address the evolving needs of our valued customers. We are proud to be recognized in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Application Security for the 6th time.
