Rogue Mobile App Protection

With the huge rise in mobile device usage over the past five years has come a predictable change in the tools and tactics utilized by threat actors. In particular, rogue apps and mobile malware have become more and more prominent threats to enterprises, their customers, and their users. These threats are commonly distributed through mainstream app stores, third-party app stores, and SMS messages.

Take Control of Mobile Threats

With PhishLabs, you can take control of rogue mobile apps and mobile banking trojans. Our platform actively monitors the App Store, Google Play, and hundreds of third-party app stores. We analyze current, updated, and newly-added apps to find those that are malicious or that use client brands without authorization. Once detected, our experts remove them from app stores and take down all associated infrastructure (such as download links, credential drops, etc.).

Our platform also monitors mobile malware families, which are primarily distributed via SMS message lures. These threats use overlays that load on top of targeted apps to steal login credentials. We actively monitor the apps and brands targeted by mobile malware families, deliver actionable intelligence to security teams, and mitigate components used to install the malware and collect stolen credentials.

Key Features

Comprehensive Store Coverage
The PhishLabs Digital Risk Protection platform monitors hundreds of official and unofficial app stores and repositories. Current, updated, and newly-added apps are automatically analyzed to find names, branding, logos, likeness, or any implied relation to your legitimate brands.
Expert Validation and Analysis
When a potential rogue app is detected, our experts review and assess the nature of the app. What is it trying to do? Is it a clone of your app? If so, what's the purpose? We answer those questions, and perform dynamic analysis to identify malicious behaviors such as stealing user data or altering transactions.
Relentless Threat Takedown
Our experts ensure that rogue apps and malware are taken offline quickly and completely. In addition to removing malicious apps from stores, we action all other threat components such as malicious links, C2 servers, etc. This further reduces risk and makes it more difficult to stand up a new attack.
Mobile Malware Protection
While monitoring app stores is needed, most malicious mobile apps are not distributed via app stores. Instead, they are distributed via SMS lures, which is an easier path for cybercriminals. To counter this, we actively monitor top mobile malware families to detect when users of your app are targeted.
