In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
Arxan protects applications across a range of industries, including: financial services, healthcare/connected medical, manufacturing, automotive, digital media, gaming, high tech/independent software vendors (ISVs), and more.
Trusted by many of the world’s largest enterprises for its application self-protection and management, Arxan’s Application Protection Solution offers application code hardening, cryptographic key and data protection, in addition to professional services to make sure deployment runs at peak performance.
Arxan’s API protection ensures that its client applications on mobile devices are genuine and authorized to utilize server assets, preventing hackers from tampering, modifying or reproducing the application for malicious purposes.
Arxan’s unique patented guarding technology safeguards against attacks in applications out in the wild such as apps in mobile environments by 1) proactively defending applications against attacks, 2) detecting at run-time when an attack is being attempted, and 3) deterring hacker attacks to stop them, alert, or repair.
More attacks are occurring at the mobile application layer, and binary code is currently the weakest link for companies to secure. Hackers have found a way to steal credentials by decompiling the binary code, and reverse engineering the binary code in order to reach the source code, granting access to intellectual property that can be lifted, stolen, reused or repackaged, in addition to leaving code open to modification and other nefarious acts. Companies using Arxan can ensure that their brand, data, customer experience and business integrity will remain secure.
Arxan’s control-flow obfuscation coupled with randomization techniques makes applications extremely challenging for hackers to reverse-engineer. Additionally, its sophisticated Whitebox Cryptography solution protects an application’s cryptographic keys from being discovered by harnessing a multitude of techniques to transform the key and related operations. Keys are the critical component for securing systems, communication and applications, and Arxan helps keep them protected at all times.
