Application security practitioners are embracing a new truth about application security: mobile apps require new protections beyond the use of traditional secure coding techniques. A new approach incorporating binary protection countermeasures is required to effectively prevent hackers from pirating or compromising the confidentiality and integrity of applications. Unprotected binary code results in a mobile app that can be analyzed, reverse-engineered, and modified by an adversary in a matter of minutes!
OWASP (The Open Web Application Security Project) has identified "Lack of Binary Protection" as a “Mobile Top 10 Risk for 2014” that must be addressed in order to safeguard applications -- and leading industry analysts are recommending the protection of binary code, as well.
Arxan provides a unique approach (no source code changes, no additional agent or SaaS) to protecting binary code that works on any platform (Apple iOS, Android, Linux, and others) and is deployed on over 250 million devices. IBM and Arxan are joining forces to enable enterprises to build secure apps and keep them secure across the mobile app lifecycle. Customers can protect their brand, revenue, IP, and data from hackers and malicious exploits, by seamlessly adding app hardening and tamper proofing defenses in their mobile apps.
· Arxan is the first security technology to complete the “Ready for IBM MobileFirst” validation. Enterprises can now confidently add self-defense and run-time protection, while developing their apps on IBM Worklight platform.
· The first “Ready for Security Intelligence” solution validation with IBM AppScan was also completed by Arxan. Enterprises can now Scan and Protect their mobile apps; IBM AppScan can highlight application integrity risks and inform required run-time protections with Arxan.
Meet Arxan at IBM Pulse conference (Booth T-12) to find out if your apps are at risk, learn more about our joint solutions, or to receive Arxan’s latest White Paper: Threats to Mobile Apps in the Wild which outlines the business and technical risks of unprotected apps and how to address them. Alternatively, you can contact Arxan at firstname.lastname@example.org for a complementary consultation.
