Mobile Application Protection

Build Trust IN Your Mobile Apps

The rapid adoption of mobile computing has created an app-centric global marketplace, ushering in the App Economy that is driving new business models and revenue streams across all industries including financial services, digital media, gaming and healthcare. As hackers increasingly target mobile apps to exploit consumer and enterprise apps, app developers and corporate IT departments must quickly plug security gaps and launch strong and agile app protection measures.

Arxan’s Mobile Application Integrity Protection™ Suite allows you to safeguard mobile apps that are vulnerable to code-based attacks when they are deployed in distributed and un-trusted environments leveraging various platform flavors of GuardIT, EnsureIT and TransformIT.

Our EnsureIT and GuardIT products are designed to protect your code integrity and intellectual property across all popular operating systems, including Apple iOS, Android, Windows Phone Series,Tizen, Blackberry, etc. and TransformIT protects keys or secret data from discovery. Fortune 500 companies have selected Arxan to successfully protect their software assets and preserve revenues and business models as they leverage innovation enabled by the mobile platform.

Arxan's application protection products are proven, patented, resilient and embedded directly into the application. Our produts do not impact the software development lifecycle (SDLC) and core functionality at run-time.  With comprehensive coverage, app owners can benefit from the broad distribution of the mobile environments to deliver mobile app security and integrity needs such as:

  • No changes to the source code or the how the application works
  • Seamless integration into the build process
  • Passive and Active Protection built right into your app 
  • Vast array of protection techniques: Obfuscation, Encryption, Checksum, Anti-Debug, Anti-Debug, Authentication, Value Verification, Repair, Standard Reactions, Alerts
  • Tunable level of Robustness (Ability to layer protections)
  • End to End Android App Protection (Java and Native)
  • Compliance for pen test teams placing greater emphasis on application decompilation and runtime tampering

And, since detection is embedded into the application, protection is not tied to the mobile computing device; your mobile application protection goes where your apps goes to:

  • Provide mobile app integrity protection
  • Prevent reverse engineering/decompilation
  • Prevent spoofing of apps to access sensitive data 
  • Prevent malware insertion
  • Prevent intellectual property theft and piracy
  • Prevent tampering with security controls or sensitive functions
  • Prevent unauthorized access and fraud

Deploying Application Integrity Protection 
Arxan's Application Protection strives to secure enterprises in the application economy against next generation application threats where competitors, counterfeiters, or private hackers compromise an application's business purpose by tampering with deployed software to conduct mobile fraud, distribute malware, steal IP, corrupt devices or violate software licenses.  With Arxan, mobile application developers can innovate with confidence without compromising security or revenue model with the freedom to deploy high-value applications in untrusted and unknown environments.  In addition, since hackers are by definition innovators and early adopters, attackers constantly develop new methods of software abuse.  Mobile application developers ascertain attack intelligence, instantly anticipating and reacting to advancing attack methods to future-proof software assets.  Finally, with security teams expected to do more with no incremental resources, an effective AIP program deploys quickly and does not incur development and runtime overhead.

Defending Mobile Apps with Arxan

Arxan’s mobile app security gives Android app protection (Java and native) as well as all major platforms such as iOS, Microsoft and BlackBerry, Windows Phone Series, Tizen, etc.  Arxan’s technology doesn’t impact device performance, providing a tunable level of robustness for optimal battery usage.

Arxan gives mobile applications "guards", making it tamper resistance and self-defending when they are in the wild that prevents reverse engineering and decompilation as well as secures keys against discovery.

Arxan shields applications with the widest variety of protection techniques for passive and active attacks, preventing:

  • Spoofing of apps to access sensitive data.
  • Malware insertion.
  • Trojanizing of apps
  • In-memory tampering or dynamic in-memory decryption and repair.
  • Vulnerability discoveries that lead to data breaches via application logic manipulation.
  • Inappropriate for access usage of an application.
  • Republished applications under your brand.

Finally, Arxan gathers and reacts to intelligence on how attackers try to crack licenses, disable authentication, steal content, inject code or take IP. As mobile apps are attacked in the wild, Arxan gathers hacking anatomies and innovations to future-proof against further attack.
