Cloud service protects Android apps from malware, hackers

Mobile security solutions provider Intercede introduced MyTAM, a cloud service that enables app developers, service providers, banks, and media streaming companies to load apps into the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) that is built into chipsets in Android devices.>

The TEE protects applications and their associated content from malware, man-in-the-browser and other forms of software-based threats. Apps loaded onto mobile devices may contain malware that can be used to expose sensitive data. However, by installing trusted apps directly into the TEE on Android devices, app providers can protect the data accessed by their apps from whatever else may be present on the handset.

MyTAM is a fully hosted cloud service that securely loads apps into the TEE. This provides security for applications that need to store personal data, enable financial transactions (including by bitcoin), or protect valuable content. Developers, their customers and valuable end user data all benefit from higher levels of security and trust.

Intercede's MyTAM

The Trustonic TEE is present on many leading Android devices, including the latest Samsung and HTC handsets. Trustonic injects cryptographic keys at the point of device manufacture, meaning that approved applications can only execute in their own secured silos.

MyTAM runs on Intercede's established security platform, which is already used by some of the enterprises and public sector organisations. It provides a scalable and cost-effective solution for any size of deployment, from enterprise apps with thousands of users to consumer apps with millions.
