Turning the cloud to a shield
Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) November 28, 2011
ShieldLock, a company in the field of information security announces the beta testing phase for “Cloud-Guardian.” This is a new and innovative security mobile technology used to help developers to add security to their mobile applications to combat against potential piracy and to help them effectively manage user licenses. Cloud-Guardian helps to reduce piracy for all major mobile platforms including Apple iOS, Google Android and Microsoft Windows Mobile.
The increased popularity and rapid growth of mobile applications (apps) have exposed developers of these applications to piracy and security issues. This has raised increase concern for mobile developers who have invested time and money developing applications and games for mobile platforms and devices.
According to recent researches, piracy accounts for an average of anywhere from 30 percent to 90 percent revenue loss for application developers. This figure depends on the platform type and the application's popularity. This loss of income and the growth expansion of mobile applications are two of the main sources of concern. Developers have attempted to make significant efforts to continue to deliver data and support service once an application has been downloaded and installed. Cloud-Guardian's aim is to help reduce application piracy by providing effective and efficient license management.
“For a long time, the main claim by the crackers (piraters), was that people should try apps before buying them,” said Moran Zavdi, CTO of ShieldLock. “While today, a big portion of apps are offering some type of free trial. However, there is no reduction in application piracy. On the contrary, mobile apps' piracy and security issues are increasing at alarming rates. This causes developers loss of revenue. Cloud-Guardian will assist developers in protecting their application without being security experts.”
Cloud-Guardian is a solution filling the security gap that currently exists between online stores, such as the app stores and marketplace where apps are downloaded and distributed, and the users who utilize them. By implementing advanced cloud technologies to verify and manage user licenses, Cloud-Guardian allows developers to easily secure and protect their applications with minimum change of code and without the need to understand security.
Developers for Android and Apple iOS simply can fill a short form to sign up for the beta phase. Only a selected number of developers will be chosen to join the Cloud-Guardian beta phase.
Cloud-Guardian is a free to try service for mobile application developers. This solution offers advanced and simple tools for mobile developers to protect their applications using Cloud Guardian technology to combat against apps piracy and manage licenses securely. The product is completely transparent and does not require any special action from the user. Developers can start protecting their apps immediately after accepted into the beta testing phase.
ShieldLock Ltd., located in Tel Aviv, Israel, has the goal of “Turning the cloud to a shield.” Established in 2010 by veterans in the information security field, ShieldLock operates in stealth mode and expects to announce public availability of their products in 2012, after two years of extensive development and research.
