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.

WebRTC is the future of browser-to-browser communications, and continues to make inroads into the traditional, difficult, plug-in web communications world. The 6th WebRTC Summit continues our tradition of delivering the latest and greatest presentations within the world of WebRTC. Topics include voice calling, video chat, P2P file sharing, and use cases that have already leveraged the power and convenience of WebRTC.
WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company?

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
