The “go-to” app for security and defense news

Owned by Atlantic Media, Defense One is a leading and trusted provider of security and defense news. To reach its audience anytime, anywhere, Atlantic Media partnered with Sapient Government Services to create an iOS app that delivers content through a platform that can be constantly updated and renewed based on news trends.

The free app provides real-time updates and trending stories from more than 50 defense news sources. The app also alerts users to breaking news via push notifications.

Delivering the goods on time, with a dedicated mobile team

To expedite development, we worked closely with our Mobile Center of Excellence, a group of developers whose sole focus is in creating mobile apps. With their expertise, we were able to go from concept to finished product in a remarkably short time.

Five stars for content and functionality

Since launching in the App Store in December 2013, Defense One has received outstanding reviews and numerous 5-star ratings for both content and functionality.

Only a year later, the online news source reaches nearly 600,000 unique visitors monthly and the app boasts well over 10,000 downloads to date. According to Atlantic Media, the Defense One app is its most engaging product, with a 15x higher engagement rate than its online counterpart.
