Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) February 4, 2008
In response to the growing demand for its GuardIT™ solution, Arxan Technologies, a leading provider of application hardening solutions designed to protect software intellectual property (IP) from piracy and tampering, today announced that it has expanded its offices in San Francisco, California. Arxan has increased its square footage by 40 percent to foster employee growth and support company expansion not only in the San Francisco Bay Area but globally. Hosting technical staff living throughout San Francisco, Marin, East Bay, Peninsula and South Bay, the office is home to Arxan's largest development lab and is comprised exclusively of product development engineers focused on software protection technologies.
Software tampering, piracy, reverse engineering and malware insertion impacts a broad range of industries - from desktop and server software to embedded devices - and it doesn't discriminate, targeting both Windows-based and Linux-based applications. In fact, IDC predicts that over the next four years, businesses will lose $200 billion to software piracy. With that in mind, organizations are furthering their investment in software IP protection and are looking to solution providers like Arxan to help thwart piracy and counterfeit attacks.
"The addition of this larger facility demonstrates our commitment to providing software application protection products, services and support, and further validates that protecting IT assets against piracy and theft is an issue of growing importance to corporations," said Mike Dager, CEO of Arxan. "We look forward to expanding our presence in San Francisco and around the world as we continue to meet global customer demand."
"I am pleased to learn that Arxan is expanding its regional presence and continues to invest in its mission to enable software companies with durable IP protection. The Software & Information Industry Association is supportive of Arxan's commitment to combat the global problem of software piracy," said Keith Kupferschmid, Senior Vice President, Intellectual Property Policy & Enforcement.
Arxan's new address at the San Francisco office address is 703 Market Street, San Francisco, CA 94103.
