Press release

Build38 is proud to announce that we have been recognised as one of the Sample Vendors for application shielding for the fourth consecutive year in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Application Security 2023 report.

BARCELONA, SPAIN – August 10, 2023 – With great pride and excitement, we at Build38 reveal our continuous recognition as a Sample Vendor for the fourth consecutive year in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Application Security 2023 report (July 2023). We believe, this acknowledgment is a testament to our unwavering dedication to innovation and customer success, further affirming our position to cater to the growing needs of our global clientele.

As per the Gartner report, “Application shielding 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. Application shielding can be used for any type of Application, but there is currently a particular focus on Mobile Apps”. Throughout the report, you will learn more about the importance of Application Shielding, its business impact, and the drivers behind this critical technology for mobile business.

Gartner recommends to “Prioritize the adoption of application shielding if your organization is in the financial services, e-commerce, insurance or healthcare industry verticals.”
