All companies on this year's list of CODiE Finalists should feel justifiably proud of their accomplishments in making it to this stage, and have much excitement to look forward to regarding the upcoming CODiE Awards voting.
Bethesda, Md. (PRWEB) April 3, 2009
Arxan Technologies, a leading provider of application hardening solutions designed to protect software applications from tampering to minimize risk and maximize profitability, today announced that its software protection solution, GuardIT®, has been selected for the second time as a finalist, for the SIIA CODiE Awards in the Best Digital Rights Management category.
Arxan's GuardIT, an advanced software protection solution, empowers developers with quick and durable protection for software applications, against unauthorized use, malware, piracy, tampering or any manner of theft. Arxan's innovative Guard technology actively and dynamically defends, detects, alerts and reacts to attempted application level attacks. Guards, which are extremely small units of code, are injected into the compiled binary without impacting the source code, application experience, and the software development process. The Guard protection network monitors and protects running applications in real-time.
"The CODiE awards represent the best of the software industry, and we are honored to be selected as a finalist two years running," said Mike Dager, chief executive officer of Arxan. "Intellectual property loss continues to plague businesses across the globe and malware has moved up the stack to the application layer. GuardIT provides a new generation of software protection by delivering an application-specific layer of security and real-time responses to attempted application breaches from malware or insider threats."
"The competition is particularly steep this year during the 24th Annual SIIA CODiE Awards, making selection as a CODiE Finalist a real achievement," said Ken Wasch, SIIA president. "All companies on this year's list of CODiE Finalists should feel justifiably proud of their accomplishments in making it to this stage, and have much excitement to look forward to regarding the upcoming CODiE Awards voting."
The CODiE Awards hold the distinction of being the industry's only peer-reviewed awards program, which provides member companies with a unique opportunity to earn praise from their competitors. Now in its twenty-fourth year, the CODiE Awards program has raised the standard for excellence and serves as prestigious representation of outstanding achievement and vision in the software and information industry.
Arxan will be showcasing GuardIT at the 2009 CODiE Finalist Showcase on May 4, 2009 at the historic Palace Hotel in San Francisco, followed by the Awards presentation. Media interested in attending the Gala should contact Lisa Mitchell-Brooks at 202-789-4458 or lmitchell (at) siia (dot) net.
