Security Best Practices for Mobile Development

Think the apps on your phone are secure because you use MDM? Are you developing a mobile app that requires enterprise grade security? Join me in the “Security Best Practices for Mobile Development” Session on Monday, November 18th: 10:00 AM – 10:45 AM in Moscone Center West, 2020.

In the enterprise, mobile devices and mobile apps need to be secure. A lost or stolen phone or tablet can mean your company data falling into the wrong hands. Join us to explore the security features available on iOS and Android. Learn how app data can be compromised and learn best practices for the development of secure enterprise apps on both platforms.

Security Best Practices for Mobile Development Repeat!

Same session, just later in the week.

At some point, all mobile app users lose their data signal. Join us to learn best-practices for coding for offline requirements with the salesforce.com Mobile SDK.
