Protecting Gaming Apps from the Inside Out

Today's World of Piracy & Cheating

Hacking Games for Fun & Profit

Some hackers love to cheat games, some love to clone popular games to then collect revenues from cracked copies. Either scenario can result in major revenue losses from pirated copies or widespread online cheating.

Common Threat Vector

Every successful game attack, regardless of the motivation, starts with the reverse engineering of the app. Once reverse engineered hackers can decipher the game to add hacks, understand how to cheat or remove digital rights management.

Protect Against App Hacking & Reverse Engineering

  • Binary level code obfuscation to secure code functionality
  • Data and key obfuscation and encryption to protect critical data and keys
  • App integrity checks to verify code status
  • Notifications to alert business of real-time app attacks
  • Detection of rooted or jailbroken devices to alert on OS level threat
