In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
Prevents reverse-engineering of your most critical applications through multi-layer guard network which delivers the most advanced application protection
Arxan’s Code Protection has “hardened” the client app and dealer tools, making it extremely difficult for a hacker to gain access to the source code and all of the security controls, lift the white-box software package and/or modify the behavior of the application at run-time.
Prevents the modification of applications, including the insertion of malicious code aimed at exploiting API libraries, automobile dealer software, and the controller-area-network
The biggest concern about connected cars is safety and reliability. In addition to traditional firmware or machine-to-machine security approaches, the applications also require protection from hackers and malicious threats. The increase in new risks targeting automotive applications can compromise critical vehicle systems, the integrity of valuable or private vehicle and user information, or premium content and payment processing channels. Not only are consumers’ private information at risk, but also their lives.
Arxan is the trusted leader in automotive application self-protection and management. Arxan’s solution empowers automotive manufacturers and OEMs to protect the integrity of content, data, applications, and software from being reverse-engineered, tampered with or modified in any way.
Arxan Application Protection, comprised of unique patented guarding technology, hardens the binary code to self-defend against reverse engineering or tampering, both statically and at runtime. Arxan’s anti-tamper techniques can respond to runtime attacks with customizable actions and notify the owner that the software is being modified. Arxan solutions proactively defend against hackers, detect if a hacking attempt is being made, and thwart the hackers.
Arxan’s Cryptographic Key/Data Protection has effectively hidden the secret keys used for authentication. Given the keys are never present either in the static form or in runtime memory, hackers are not able to gain unauthorized access to the application and/or to any of the in-car networks. Arxan’s automated application protection will defend, detect, and deter attacks, allowing users to take the driver’s seat on security.
