SafeDK has raised $2.25 million and will launch the first SDK management platform that provides real-time insights, actionable alerts, and proactive solutions for mobile SDKs.
“SafeDK, developer of a mobile SDK management platform, is launching its In-App Protection solution and marketplace, putting app security and quality in the hands of app developers,” a provided statement explains. “SafeDK monitors the real-time behavior of SDKs and notifies developers of privacy, performance, and stability issues.”
The tech comes with an automatic, easier-to-use dashboard.
In addition, it provides granular control over the SDK privacy permissions and allows developers to simply turn off SDKs or certain functionality within an SDK without harming app stability.
“What makes SafeDK a crucial solution for developers is the ability to update their apps’ new SDK configuration with a simple click, and without the need for version updates,” the company contends. “Once a developer makes changes in the SafeDK dashboard, they are reflected across all devices, automatically. SafeDK users can stay up-to-date on the latest issues with the SDKs they utilize in their apps and get real-time statistics and alerts, which minimizes the amount of time an app and its users are at risk.”
The SDK grew from real experiences.
“I experienced firsthand the difficulty in finding the right SDK for my app, when I was working for a global location based services company,” says CEO Orly Shoavi. “When I wanted to find a specific SDK, I would Google it and get to the official SDK website. I couldn’t find any unbiased information or hear about the experience of others with this SDK. Once implemented, we experienced problems with our app, not knowing which SDK was causing us the problem. We were very exposed, vulnerable and without control.”
