Application Security in Alpha Anywhere 3.1 adds FIPS 140-2 encryption and Suite B Algorithms for Data At Rest



At Alpha we are committed to building the most productive offline capable mobile development and deployment system that meets the fundamental requirements (see slide from recent Gartner conference) that enterprises have for closing the mobile app gap.

One of the key issues that developers and executives care about is, not surprisingly, application security. Alpha Anywhere already has a very strong security framework tightly wound into the product and is in use in numerous HIPAA and banking situations. As an integral component of Alpha Anywhere, adding security can be easily added to any mobile, web, or desktop app. Provisions for data encryption, login and authentication, and user access control are just some of the features available in Alpha Anywhere.

Enhancing Security for Mobile Apps in Alpha Anywhere

As part of our ongoing focus on security, we are happy to announce that through our partnership with Apperian, we have added “Data-at-Rest (DAR) Encryption from Mocana” to Alpha Anywhere. This allows for encryption of data stored by the app without having to encrypt the entire device. The entire app and any local data (sandbox container) are encrypted with FIPS 140-2 encryption and Suite B algorithms, the strongest encryption used by the US government and approved for export.
