Protecting Content For Content Providers
Content providers and aggregators are highly susceptible to infiltration by malware, and face drastic consequences to their reputation, business model and customer base when malicious applications are found at online stores and then downloaded by unsuspecting end users.
Content Providers are a trusted source of clean content with stringent product and downtime guarantees. To uphold these requirements, providers face the challenge of managing high volumes of inbound and outbound traffic, utilizing complicated network topography and understanding the intention of a variety of different third party submitted applications.
With the rising number of smartphones and other mobile devices, demand for added content has increased: In 2011 alone, Gartner predicts that more than 17 billion apps will be downloaded.
