Mumbai: Cybersecurity company TAC Security has been appointed as a key Cyber Security Assessor for the app Defense Alliance (ADA).

Originally launched by Google in 2019 to combat malicious Android apps, the ADA is now transitioning to the Joint Development Foundation (JDF) under the Linux Foundation.

The ADA’s expansion beyond Android underscores a broader commitment to improving app security across various ecosystems.

TAC Security’s selection as a Cyber Security Assessor reflects the alliance’s efforts to enlist expertise from top cybersecurity firms to mitigate malware and ensure robust Mobile App Security Assessments (MASA) and Cloud App Security Assessments (CASA).

TAC Security joins the ADA alongside industry leaders like ESET, Lookout, and Zimperium.

The addition of tech giants like Meta (formerly Facebook) and Microsoft to ADA’s steering committee further emphasises the collaborative effort to advance app security standards and practices.

“We are proud to partner with Microsoft and Meta’s App Defense Alliance to enhance app security globally,” said Trishneet Arora, Founder and CEO, TAC Security. “Through our expertise and collaborative efforts within the ADA framework, we are committed to creating a safer digital environment for users worldwide.”

As TAC Security takes on its role as a Cyber Security Assessor within the ADA, the alliance aims to bolster resilience against emerging cyber threats, ushering in a new era of collaborative cybersecurity efforts.

This partnership opens an ecosystem of more than 10,000 potential customers for the company.

TAC Security debuted on NSE Emerge on April 5, 2024, with a 174% premium over the offer price. Backed by stock market expert Vijay Kedia, the company raised 29.99 crore through its IPO and received bids exceeding $1 billion, resulting in an oversubscription of 422 times.
