Mobile app security through security framework: Build38 enters into distribution partnership with TÜV AUSTRIA subsidiary SPP

Expansion of the partner network in the DACH region

Munich, February 23, 2021 – With the number of mobile applications growing every day, the topic of app security plays an important role worldwide. Attacks, in which cybercriminals gain access to apps via security vulnerabilities and thus obtain sensitive data, occur again and again. To solve this global problem and make apps secure, Build38 has developed a Software Development Kit (SDK) that includes a collection of essential security features. To make its SDK available to even more companies in the future, the solution provider is pursuing the expansion of its partner network. By cooperating with the reseller SPP, a wholly owned subsidiary of the TÜV AUSTRIA Group, Build38 is taking another important step in this direction.

Mobile applications on smartphones and tablets have become an indispensable part of everyday life. With the constant use of apps, it is important that they are completely secure so that hackers cannot gain access to it and manipulate it or be able to pick off data. Consequently, every app should be equipped with the necessary security features during development, which the framework from Build38 includes. This allows all Android and iOS apps to be secured from the ground up, so developers, operators and users no longer have to worry about potential cyberattacks.

Expansion of sales activities

Through the newly concluded partnership with TÜV AUSTRIA Group member SPP, Build38 is opening up a new sales channel in the DACH region. “We are pleased to have gained another experienced and well-positioned partner,” says Dr. Christian Schläger, Managing Director at Build38. “TÜV AUSTRIA Group’s international focus and wide range of authorizations give us the opportunity to offer our mobile app security solutions in additional markets with immediate effect. It is important to us to draw attention worldwide to the need for app security, which can be ensured easily and quickly with our SDK. SPP and TÜV AUSTRIA can provide us with excellent support in this regard.”

Mobile security, specifically secure app development, is an increasingly important topic in today’s society and economy. Great damage can quickly arise here – both for the operator and the user – if the topic of security is not focused on at an early stage,” says Andreas Koeberl, General Manager at SPP. “We have taken a close look at Build38’s security framework and see high potential in it for a holistic security concept for apps.”
