Announcing Devknox – Autocorrect for Security Issues

After spending close to two years on our mobile security solution for businesses, we’ve realized the need for something easier for developers to take care of security as they build apps.

Devknox is a first of its kind security tool that enables developers to detect and resolve security issues as they write code in Android Studio. While it checks for basic security issues, developers also get real-time suggestions to fix these issues instantly. Consider it to be like an autocorrect for security issues.

Key features of Devknox:
  • Intuitive Report Window – Devknox’s report window displays the name of your issues, the location of the issues, with an option for you to fix and suppress the issues right from the report window itself.Devknox - Intuitive Report Window

    b. We’ve implemented an ‘IDE Editor Marking’ and a ‘Quick Jump to Issue’ feature in the editor itself.
    c. You also have a Problem Synopsis as well as Detailed Information in TooltipAnnouncing Devknox - Autocorrect for Security Issues

Why should Apple take all the credit?

We’re well aware that the industry acknowledges Apple as the more secure OS as compared to Google. Why should they be? With Devknox, Google can now ensure that apps pushed onto the Play Store at least have basic security clearance which gives a boost to the overall quality of the Play Store.
