Arxan Technologies, a company providing security solutions for mobile apps, is highlighting its April 2013 announcement from IBM Impact 2013 with a webcast, "Mobile App Security: Integrated Protection with IBM Worklight and Arxan," on September 5, 2013. The original announcement introduced Arxan Mobile Application Integrity Protection for IBM Worklight Apps, an integrated solution that enables IBM Worklight customers to protect their mobile apps against hacking attacks and malware exploits. The proactive application integrity protection is delivered by Arxan's Guarding technology; it enables IBM MobileFirst customers to increase security during the app development and deployment processes.
Arxan Guarding uses injection technology to embed self-defending and tamper-resistant protection mechanisms (a network of Guards) directly into the code; these Guards don't require source code modification, they can be integrated into the IBM Worklight build workflow without disruption to the software development process, they go wherever the app goes, and they can be leveraged in two tiers of protection:
- A minimal level for all apps developed with Worklight.
- A maximum level, suggested for Worklight apps that have custom native code (hybrid mixed and native app types) or a custom shell.
