Arxan to Address Emerging Security Threats in the Mobile Enterprise at TechForum's Security Forum

BETHESDA, MD, Apr 18, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- Arxan Technologies, the leading provider of software security solutions that protects the global App Economy, announced today it will present at TechForum's Security Forum on key security threats affecting the mobile enterprise and best practices to defend apps against malware, reverse-engineering, and other malicious attacks.

TechForum's Security Forum: Emerging Trends in Enterprise Security, takes place April 18 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.

Vince Arneja, vice president of product management, Arxan, will deliver a presentation titled, "The New Attack Surface: Emerging Threats in the Mobile Enterprise," at 2 p.m. ET.

Enterprises continue to leverage the mobile platform by developing native or hybrid mobile apps that provide customers with rich and effective user experiences no matter which mobile device they use.

The need to protect this large diversity of apps with passive and active protection mechanisms has never been more critical. Today's enterprise security needs to incorporate the ability to prevent in-memory tampering, reverse engineering, decompilation, mobile malware insertion, and key discovery, among other attacks, to achieve a built in robustness for today's app economy.

According to the "Emerging Technology Analysis: Mobile Application Shielding" March 2013 report by Gartner, "As organizations 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's Multi-Platform Application Integrity Protection solution shields applications by hardening code and keys against tampering, piracy, reverse-engineering, fraud, IP theft, and unauthorized use.

Arxan's patented and award-winning Guard Technology embeds small security units to "lockdown" applications against attack and are comprised of many Guard types, such as obfuscation, encryption, authentication and other technologies. Its military-grade software security technology originates from satisfying nation-level anti-tamper mandates and is commercially worldwide protecting mobile, desktop, embedded and server applications from attack.
