Mobile App Security: A Minimum Baseline

As global demand for user-facing and internal enterprise apps continues to increase, the mobile development industry has focused largely on increasing developer productivity to satisfy the demand. We have seen huge advancements in cross-platform tooling and rapid development workflows, which has allowed enterprises to cut mobile development cycles and rush to market much sooner than in previous years. This quick-to-market app delivery model lends itself to the unintended consequence of security being an afterthought, if it’s being considered at all.

Choosing a .NET-Based Content Management System for Your Business

If your business is in the market for a new Content Management System, or CMS, you might be feeling overwhelmed with options. One quick way to narrow down the choices is to focus on which type of programming language your development team is most comfortable working in. Here at Aptera, we focus primarily on Microsoft-based systems in .NET. If you do, too, we’ve reviewed five top .NET-based CMS platforms and compared them based on features, cost, licensing, and more to help you determine which is the best fit for your business.

Lessons From Building a Multi-Brand Web App

The first set of challenges I want to talk about are the ones that didn’t involve technology. Programmers are often quick to jump to the technical side of the project. But for multibrand projects, it is important to have a solid non-technical foundation before the development begins.
