Since software developers are focused on delivering to release schedules, they sometimes lack the dedicated resources or time to efficiently research the source and extent of their software risk. Arxan's YTS allows these companies to leverage pre-packaged groundwork and proceed with relevant caution with regards to their software strategy.
Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) July 1, 2008
Arxan Technologies, a leading provider of application hardening solutions, designed to protect software intellectual property (IP) from tampering and theft, today announced the availability of its Yellow Team Services (YTS). Arxan's Yellow Team experts will partner with software-driven businesses to understand the nature and magnitude of software products being subject to piracy and tampering. Arxan's YTS completes its portfolio of software protection offerings for comprehensive application hardening solutions.
In response to market demands, Yellow Team engagements begin with a complimentary Cracked Software Investigation (CSI) report. Arxan's dedicated CSI team uncovers products which may have been cracked, as well as where counterfeit versions are being sold and how freely they are shared on peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. The Yellow Team program provides software producers with the ability to:
- Assess their damage and determine what IP is at risk through the CSI report;
- Determine the reason behind their software exposure by uncovering where the weak links or attack threats may exist; and,
- Provide professional security engineering experts to plot a solution to defend software product(s) and maximize revenues.
"The software industry has struggled with code protection for a long time, but organizations no longer need to accept that it's simply a cost of doing business," said Scott Baeder, Anti-Piracy Committee Chairman, Electronic Design Automation Consortium. "Since software developers are focused on delivering to release schedules, they sometimes lack the dedicated resources or time to efficiently research the source and extent of their software risk. Arxan's YTS allows these companies to leverage pre-packaged groundwork and proceed with relevant caution with regards to their software strategy."
"Our Yellow Team Services demonstrate our deep commitment to our customers to help them better understand the extent to which they are exposed to software risks," said Arxan CEO Mike Dager. "We believe that providing our expert resources enables customers to save time and quickly gain an accurate picture of their software exposure, including the location of security vulnerabilities and the ways in which they can be hacked. Both elements are critical to developing a protection plan. With that in mind, it is our aim to help customers manage risks and provide resources to help them execute an effective defense strategy."
Arxan's Yellow Team Services are offered at multiple levels, starting with a CSI, and are complementary to its award-winning software protection product, GuardIT ®. GuardIT is a proven commercial protection product for both managed and native code designed to meet the business demand for software application protection. The GuardIT family includes GuardIT for Windows, GuardIT for Linux and GuardIT for .NET, and all GuardIT offerings feature automated, easy to use, yet customizable protection across desktop, embedded and server software applications.
Together, Yellow Team Services and GuardIT form a comprehensive protection strategy for software publishers to better understand their software piracy challenges and regain control of their software.
