Arxan Technologies Showcases Industry Leading Software Protection for Android Apps at AnDevCon IV: The Android Developer Conference

Company Secures the Open Architecture of Android to Achieve Superior, End-to-End App Protection for the Global Android App Ecosystem

BETHESDA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 12/04/12 --


WHAT: Arxan Technologies, a leading provider of software security solutions that protect the global App Economy, will showcase its Android application protection suite for both native and Java apps at AnDevCon IV: The Android Developer Conference, booth #303. AnDevCon IV is the leading technical conference for software developers building Android apps, offering more than 75 classes focused solely on Android development.

WHEN: Dec. 4-7, 2012

WHERE: Hyatt Regency, Burlingame, Calif.

Given the open-source nature of Android, Google recommends, at minimum, the usage of code obfuscation to protect Android apps from attack. However, hackers can easily leverage widely available decompilation and code analysis tools to defeat obfuscation-only solutions and therefore seriously lack adequate protection from reverse-engineering and tampering attacks at the application layer which increasingly contains highly valued assets, critical security logic or sensitive data.

In August 2012, Arxan released its State of Security in the App Economy: Mobile Apps under Attack report which showed that 100 percent of the Top 100 paid Android apps had been hacked. The report revealed the widespread prevalence of "cracked" mobile apps and the financial impact befalling the multi-billion dollar App Economy due to compromised brands, lost revenues, intellectual property (IP) theft, and piracy.

Arxan provides end-to-end security for Android apps (Java and Native), enabling protection of the code, data and cryptographic keys resident within and leveraged as part of an Android application across multiple devices and processing environments. The sum of Arxan's layered security technology prevents passive and active analysis and delivers resilient app integrity in a proven manner which does not impact source code, application functioning or the development process.

To schedule a briefing with Arxan at AnDevCon IV (booth #303) and learn more about its Android mobile app protection suite, please contact Kelly Poffenberger at [email protected].

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
