JavaScript App Shielding 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) attacks and Man-in-the-Browser style malware.

Arxan for Web includes a multi-layered approach to protecting web applications.
  • Passive 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 or attacked code can be repaired
  • Real-time alerting - notifies organizations of attempted code tampering or analysis via Arxan Threat Analytics to quarantine suspicious accounts and update code protections

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.
Protecting Your Business from Client-Side Threats

When it comes to protecting JavaScript web applications, perimeter security alone just isn’t enough. To defend your web apps from client-side attacks, you need protection that not only prevents reverse engineering and malware attacks, but that alerts you at the first sign of tampering or code analysis.
