By Chrissie Cluney December 04, 2019

Lookout, Inc. has announced several new customer acquisitions and strategic go-to-market partnerships.

Money Mart, a financial services company that provides payday loans, check cashing and money transfer services, has chosen Lookout App Defense to provide protection for its mobile apps.

“Our mobile apps have become a very important channel for customer engagement and when we launched a completely revamped mobile experience for our users, securing these apps against cyber threats and malware became a top priority for our security and fraud teams,” said Awan Sikri, CTO, Money Mart. “Our mobile app team was able to integrate and test the App Defense SDK in a few days and now we have real-time visibility into a variety of threats on consumer devices, which allows us to incorporate risk mitigation workflows in our app to protect our customers and their trust in our brand.”

The app ecosystem includes partnerships with Trustonic to jointly offer developers the advanced application protection necessary to secure critical mobile apps in digital banking, payments, mPOS, mobileID authentication and other use-cases.

“This has been a huge year for Lookout App Defense, as we’ve broken into new markets and acquired new customers globally,” said Satendar Bhatia, SVP, Embedded Software Sales, Lookout. “We’ve also onboarded key technology partnerships that complete our vision and make us a one-stop-shop offering a complete mobile app protection suite to customers.”
