Appthority's software analyzes mobile apps for risky behavior to prevent malware infection and loss of sensitive corporate data or intellectual property.

The San Francisco-based company won the 2012 Innovation Sandbox competition at the RSA Conference and in May said it raised $6.25 million in a financing round led by Venrock and US Venture Partners.

Appthority integrates with third-party mobile device management vendors, such as BoxTone, as well as products from mobile application management vendors, such as Apperian. It also partners with app developers who are migrating line-of-business apps to the mobile environment.
