Don’t miss these 4 vital considerations while designing an enterprise app
Because every expert out there saying that the future belongs to mobility doesn’t mean you hastily jump into mobile app development, particularly if it’s aimed at enterprise operations. First, take a break and learn the way people have adopted mobility and then go ahead.
No doubt mobility has become incredibly important for people all over the world but it doesn’t mean that they will download any app being thrown at them. People download and keep only those apps in their devices which they find useful for them. The same applies on enterprise app users.
With whole world starting to take app quite seriously, businesses need to plan apps with the best possible thoughtfulness. Little ignorance can cause severe damage and for enterprises, such damages can cost a lot.
Let me detail some important considerations enterprises need to pay attention on while they are going for enterprise mobile app development.
Do not completely depend on built-in security features of a platform or app development technology.
App security is one of the most important aspects and, businesses should always keep tabs on whether developers are giving it all due attention or not. Don’t stay assured that yours is an iOS app and, it – by default – will run on safest mobile platforms. There are incidents in which iOS too faced cyber attacks.
There is need of taking additional measures on security aspects and, you have to make sure developers are doing that.
Create multi-level authentication
If there are attackers behind your app, password based authentication cannot merely save it from them. You will need to have multi-level authentication to provide foolproof security. It will be helpful where not only a password holds the key. Multiple level authentication system requires users to provide the code sent on their mobile numbers. So even after a password is compromised, accessed will be granted only when the code sent over mobile devices is input.
Preventing unsafe data transmission
For almost all businesses, their data is as valuable as their capital and thus they want to provide it highest level of security. In apps, security is assured by encryption but unfortunately, 33% of IT companies do not use encryption methods to provide security to their apps. You should take security of the app very seriously and ask your development team to implement the best security method to prevent unsafe data transmission.
Limit data caching vulnerabilities
Hackers can easily access cache data. To avoid any security breaches caused by cache data, you need to ask developers to limit the caching of data and related vulnerabilities. One good solution is to add password access to the app. Another is program the app in way so that every time it erases off all cached data whenever user's mobile is restarted.
