Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) October 15, 2007
Arxan Technologies, a leading provider of application hardening solutions designed to protect software IP from piracy and tampering, today announces that Vince Arneja, Director of Product Management for Arxan, will deliver a Webinar through the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), airing on October 16, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. EDT, that will address the key factors essential for securing valuable software intellectual property (IP).
IDC estimates that over $40 billion was lost to software piracy in 2006 alone, with $180 billion in loss expected over the next five years. Many users knowingly download pirated software from a variety of sources, including underground websites and peer to peer networks. Many more, however, unknowingly purchase counterfeit software. In a world made small and flat by the Internet, professional pirates and pirated software markets are thriving at the expense of software vendors, and their research and development investments.
Arneja's Webinar presentation entitled, "Protecting Software: Seven Key Factors in Effectively Hardening Software Applications," will discuss the major areas of vulnerability within software applications today. As hacking technology expands, security technology evolves to keep pace. In the past, engineers have leveraged mechanisms like serial numbers, node-locking devices and electronic license management to help curb illegitimate use and replication of their software. However, in today's sophisticated threat landscape, such measures alone are inadequate to safeguard software and the IP it contains. Webinar attendees will learn how software is being hacked today, and how to effectively protect their software without negatively impacting application performance, feature delivery schedules and more importantly, customer satisfaction.
