The App Defense Alliance (ADA), an industry-leading collaboration launched by Google in 2019 dedicated to ensuring the safety of the app ecosystem, is taking a major step forward. We are proud to announce that the App Defense Alliance is moving under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation, with Meta, Microsoft, and Google as founding steering members. This strategic migration represents a pivotal moment in the Alliance’s journey, signifying a shared commitment by the members to strengthen app security and related standards across ecosystems. This evolution of the App Defense Alliance will enable us to foster more collaborative implementation of industry standards for app security.

The App Defense Alliance was formed with the mission of reducing the risk of app-based malware and better protecting Android users. Malware defense remains an important focus for Google and Android, and we will continue to partner closely with the Malware Mitigation Program members – ESET, Lookout, McAfee, Trend Micro, Zimperium – on direct signal sharing. The migration of ADA under the Linux Foundation will enable broader threat intelligence sharing across leading ecosystem partners and researchers. We invite you to stay connected with the newly structured App Defense Alliance under the Linux foundation umbrella. Join the conversation to help make apps more secure.
