Live app hack showcases today’s emerging app threats, the need for mobile app integrity defence, and how apps are hacked at blazing speed in three minutes or less

Infosec attendees receive exclusive Mobile Application Integrity Protection Handbook

London, April 22, 2013 – As the proliferation of mobile devices continues to fuel an app-centric global industry, hacked mobile apps present a tremendous security and financial threat. That’s why Arxan Technologies, the leading provider of software security solutions that protects the App Economy, says it’s imperative to protect and defend the integrity of mobile software applications that are driving business ecosystems around the world. To this end, the company is launching its Mobile App Integrity Protection™ solution and at Stand #J79, Arxan will present live, “Your App Hacked and 100% Compromised in Three Minutes or Less,” a depiction of today’s most sinister app threat vectors, underscoring the need for multi-OS app integrity defense.  Attendees will witness how apps are hacked in three minutes or less – compromising app integrity, including security and business assets. Attendees will also have an opportunity to pick up the complimentary Mobile Application Integrity Protection Handbook,which offers industry leaders key insights and strategies to support secure mobile app development and defense against integrity risks and attacks. According to the “Emerging Technology Analysis: Mobile Application Shielding” market report by Gartner, “As organisations target key applications such as sales support, mobile payment, customer service or other such applications, they will find that the mobile OS alone, even when managed via an MDM solution, may not meet all security requirements. The more enterprises deploy regulated applications to mobile platforms, the more application shielding for these platforms becomes in demand.” Arxan CEO Mike Dager comments, “Today’s hackers are getting more aggressive and launching sophisticated attacks on the internal operations of an application and these attacks are taking place at breakneck speed. In less than 180 seconds mobile apps can be hacked and exposed to reverse-engineering, tampering, insertion of malware/exploits, repackaging, fraud, intellectual property theft, and piracy attacks – leaving organisations exposed to billions in financial and reputational losses. Attendees are invited to visit the Arxan stand to see a mobile application hack in real time and understand what actually happens at the code level.” Mobile App Integrity Protection™ Platform Showcased During the show, Arxan will be showcasing the security features and functionality for its Mobile App Integrity Protection Platform™, the world's strongest and most deployed application integrity protection platform now deployed on more than 200 million devices by leading Fortune 500 organisations in high-tech, ISV, financial services, media, gaming and other industries. The Arxan app integrity software works on Apple iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone 8, Tizen and enables mobile, desktop, server and embedded applications to self-protect “in the wild” via automated defend, detect and react capabilities by deploying various security techniques (called Guards), such as obfuscation, checksum and anti-debug, directly into the software code of each app to make them tamper resistant and self-defending. The technology delivers resilient app integrity in a durable and proven manner which does not impact source code, application functioning, or the development process. Additionally, interested parties may access a complimentary electronic copy of the Mobile Application Integrity Protection Handbook here.
