JavaScript App Security and Threat Detection to Protect Client-Side Web Applications

Protecting JavaScript code is vital to defending against server-side API attacks and credential theft. JavaScript is an interpreted language, not a compiled one which means that unless additional steps are taken to secure JavaScript code, it can be easily be intercepted, viewed and compromised.

This unsecured JavaScript code can then be used to attack back office systems or steal user credentials. Protecting web applications is key to defending against server side (API) and Man-in-the-Browser attacks.

Web application security: The piece you’re probably missing

For SD Times, Aaron Lint, Chief Scientist at Arxan, explains why the client side should not be overlooked in web app security.
Arxan for Web includes a multi-layered approach to protecting web applications that can be implemented without disrupting continuous integration and continuous development (CI/CD) and DevSecOps environments.
  • Protection at the Speed of DevOps - rapidly inject essential app code protections and threat detection sensors after code development, without disrupting your DevOps process
  • Advanced Protection - detects manipulation of all app assets (DOM, HTML, CSS, JS)
  • Real-time Alerting - notifies organizations of attempted code tampering or analysis via Arxan Threat Analytics to quarantine suspicious accounts and update code protections
  • Static Protection - obfuscates javascript source code, making it harder for attackers to understand and analyze for reverse engineering
  • Active Protection - in the event of code analysis, tampering or malware attacks, the browser can be shut down, sandboxed or attacked code can be self-repaired
  • Randomized Code Obfuscation - adds deceptive code and removes semantic code information
Secure Your Web Applications from the Inside Out

An estimated 95% of websites run on JavaScript and HTML5, languages that can easily be intercepted, viewed and compromised. This leaves web applications vulnerable to client-side attacks, especially when relying only on traditional perimeter security tools like a WAF. Read on to learn how Arxan for Web can minimize web app vulnerabilities.
