Number of mobile apps hits all time high. But are they safe to download?

It is estimated that last year’s smartphone app downloads topped six million, according to ABI research.

With this growing market comes growing security threats, which mobile app publishers and developers are keen to address. Mobile applications that have been tampered with can threaten both the security of the user and the network.

The answer to these security concerns is ‘code signing’. Used already by Windows Mobile 7 and Windows Marketplace for Mobile, code signingdigitally signs and secures applications and gives users the confidence to download them.

SSL247 boasts today’s best code signing certificates from Thawte and the number one name in online trust – VeriSign.
