TeskaLabs and Chelsea Apps Factory Announce Strategic Partnership to Accelerate Secure Enterprise Mobility

Strategic partnership formed to build and operate mobile applications securely

London - Mar 9, 2016 - TeskaLabs have announced a partnership with Chelsea Apps Factory (CAF), a company specialising in the development of mobile apps and UK’s fastest growing mobile organisation. The partnership will enable both companies to deliver value in the growing enterprise mobility market.

The partnership will offer enterprise customers end-to-end secure enterprise mobile services and solutions by combining the best of both companies’ capabilities. Following the participation in Techstars London last year, TeskaLabs helps enterprises to build and operate mobile application securely. TeskaLabs was in the top 4 of KPMG’s Best British Mobile Startups for 2016.

As more enterprises consider to release more mobile applications to engage their customers and own employees, development of new applications increases. Gartner says that 2016 will see one of the biggest growth of enterprise mobile applications and by the end of 2017, demand for mobile apps will surpass development capacities of enterprises’ in-house IT team.

On the other hand, mobile application security is a sticking point for businesses, slowing their adoption of mobile technologies. Over two-thirds of large enterprises have been breached via mobile apps. Each breach costs enterprises on average up to $3 million. Veracode reported that over 80% of mobile applications have encryption flaws. Gartner forecasted that 75% of mobile applications would fail basic security tests by the end of last year.

Mike Anderson, CEO of Chelsea Apps Factory, commented: "Chelsea Apps Factory is excited to form this strategic partnership with TeskaLabs. It is great to harness TeskaLabs’ technology to support our enterprise applications and protect our global clients from cyber attacks. The partnership will see us using TeskaLabs’ technology within our existing client base and will enable us to bolster our mobile application security offering for new clients."

Commenting on the partnership, TeskaLabs CEO, Ales Teska, said: “We are very pleased to enter this strategic partnership with Chelsea Apps Factory. This partnership gives us stronger capabilities in the enterprise segment. By teaming up with a recognized partner, we solidify our strength in the UK’s enterprise mobility market.”
