Bruce Benn, Validian President and CEO, commented, "A huge percentage of all types of mobile applications have serious security issues for a variety of reasons. Every mobile application in existence today can be hacked to access and steal confidential digital information stored on a mobile device or stored in other locations that interact with that mobile device. The market for secure mobile applications is predicted to be a major growth sector and Validian has the only technology in the market that affords developers the ability to secure these mobile applications." Benn added, "It should be noted that developers and channel partners influence and often determine what cyber security technologies are to be implemented in an application and network. Validian is finding that these developers and channel partners are receptive to evaluating, testing and then implementing Validian's next generation Intrusion Prevention Platform into their applications because it is the only technology available in the market today that prevents cyber attacks from happening against applications in the first place and it is so quick and easy to implement."
