Arxan Technologies Presents Next Generation Mobile App Attacks at Apps World North America 2013

Protecting the App Economy Requires a Rigorous Understanding of Key App Integrity Risks and Threats, Says CTO

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Arxan Technologies, the industry-leading provider of software security solutions that protect the global App Economy, announced today that Kevin Morgan, chief technology officer and vice president of engineering, will be a featured speaker at Apps World North America, the conference and expo that examines the new technologies, markets and channels driving innovation across the apps ecosystem: TV apps, gaming apps, web and cloud apps, HTML5 and automotive industry infotainment.

Arxan will also be exhibiting at the conference (booth # 121) which takes place today through Feb. 8 at Moscone Center West in San Francisco. The company will be demonstrating its Mobile Application Integrity Protection Suite which employs a multi-layer, defense-in-depth security approach to protect the mobile enterprise. In today's mobile environment, apps are exposed to next generation hacking attacks such as reverse-engineering, tampering, insertion of malware, repackaging, fraud, intellectual property theft, and piracy which can adversely affect revenue, business models and brand integrity.

Morgan will speak on the topic of "Mobile app security: myths, risks and recommendations" Feb. 7 at 4:10 p.m. PT in the Enterprise Zone, and will be joined by Domingo Guerra, president and founder, of Appthority and John Fellows, CTO, Kaazing. During the session, the expert panelists will discuss the state of security for mobile apps as mega trends such as BYOD for diverse operating systems continue to define a distinct threat landscape. Morgan will address next generation application risks that hackers launch on the mobile computing platform which compromise the overall integrity of an application. Mobile hackers target an enterprise's customized security logic, jailbreak/root detection, authentication, and proprietary algorithms that are critical components of their mobile app.

Enterprises are broadening their approach to meet the requirements of a robust mobile app security landscape. For instance, mobile app security must include comprehensive and complementary security layers comprised of app integrity protection, mobile device management (MDM) and mobile app management (MAM) to yield a strong defense.

The proliferation of mobile devices has created an app-centric global marketplace, ushering in the App Economy that is driving innovation, new business models, and revenue streams across all industries such as mobile financial services, digital entertainment, gaming, and automotive. Gartner expects 45 billion app downloads, as of the close of 2012, and for these to generate revenue of $15 billion. By 2016, it expects those figures to rise to 305 billion apps and $74 billion.

The growth in the App Economy has also led to new attack vectors and threats for which mitigation strategies are necessary to protect IP from theft, fraud, malware invasion and tampering. Arxan's App Integrity Protection Platform provides automated defend, detect and react capabilities by deploying various security techniques (called Guards) such as obfuscation, checksum or anti-debug directly into the software code of each app to protect binaries against discovery and compromise. The technology delivers resilient app integrity and defends against tampering and reverse-engineering of code and IP in a durable and proven manner which does not impact source code, application functioning or the development process.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
