Appmobi has announced the integration of its Appmobi Secure Mobile Platform with the Intel XDK.
“The ability to integrate with the Intel XDK provides greater security integration for mobile applications, and helps mobile app developers to secure enterprise-grade apps faster and more cost effectively than if they were built manually,” according to Appmobi.
The Appmobi Secure Cloud makes securing hybrid Cordova apps easier, with one public package, but without the overhead that typically holds back SMEs (small to medium enterprises), independent, and casual developers.
The new featured Appmobi plug-in with the Intel XDK and a featured application template allows Intel developers to build secure, enterprise-grade hybrid HTML5 and Cordova-based mobile applications in minutes. The full range of Appmobi services are available on the public cloud at no charge via Appmobi’s Secure Cloud.
“Any user will be able to sign up on the Appmobi portal and immediately use the services without the need to sign up for Amazon Web Services (AWS), launch instances, or configure the backend,” reports the company. “The service is free for up to 500 devices and can be seamlessly transitioned to private stack services.”
Greater security is one goal of the changes at Appmobi. The firm cited a 2015 Cost of Data Breach Study from IBM X-Force Research showing that the average cost of a data breach was $6.5 million per incident in the U.S. alone last year.
“Security is a global problem and it is the number one focus at Appmobi,” said Marcel E. Smit, CEO of Appmobi.” “We want to solve this global problem by offering the services needed for the escalating security threats in today’s market. This is why we are making the Appmobi Secure Mobile Platform stronger than ever before, and more widely available for any mobile developer through Secure Cloud and the ability to integrate the Intel XDK.”
