CloudSEK has developed a new app called BeVigil that can help search malicious apps downloaded on a mobile phone and collect data on what permissions and data they were accessing and processing.
All these days, smart phone users were downloading apps available on the app store and were using it, knowing nothing about their genuineness in their operations and trust.
BeVigil will stand out as a whistle blowing platform against fraudulent and malicious apps available on the android ecosystem. It does it in a detailed fashion by giving a text explanation on security and privacy practices employed by the mobile apps.
Furthermore, BeVigil can also prove as a resourceful tool to identify security risks and existing bugs on an application. It can assist bug bounty researchers contact developers if in case their app exhibits any security-related issues.
Currently, the app is only restricted to Google Play Store for downloads and in near time, it can be extended to iOS users as well.
NOTE- CloudSEK leverages artificial intelligence to detect security related alerts across internet sources, and helps analyze threats precisely and that too with zero or minimal intervention. In the year 2020, the Indian company bagged prestigious NASSCOM Emerge 50 2020 award in the cybersecurity category and won an award for its excellence in developing a security product for the year 2020. Thus, it received a $7 million funding from MassMutual Ventures the subsequent year, taking the total investment to $10m appx.
