Vordel and Cigital partner to help address challenges of integrating and securing mobile apps

Vordel, a provider of gateways for SOA and cloud computing, said today that it has formed a partnership with software security consulting firm Cigital.

The two companies are planning to provide solutions and advice to organisations seeking to deploy business services on mobile platforms, enabling firms to implement best practice security for mobile application integration, in addition to satisfying regulatory compliance and governance policies.

According to Vordel and Cigital this partnership addresses the security deficit for mobile apps, where many organisations lack the basic security and integration skills necessary to successfully expose internal applications to mobile devices.
