Proven software security for mobile financial applications that are rapidly being deployed for new mobile banking, commerce and payment services

WHEN: Jan. 31-Feb. 1, 2012

WHAT: Arxan Technologies is showcasing its expertise in providing leading global financial institutions and mobile commerce providers with world-class software security for mobile banking, peer-to-peer payments or third-party payment applications. Arxan, a leading provider of software security solutions that protect applications from attack in distributed or un-trusted environments, is a sponsor of the Mobile Financial Services & NFC Summit and is exhibiting its suite of products that protect applications throughout the value chain of the financial services ecosystem.

As mobile applications rapidly become a mainstream offering of banks, retailers and merchants to capture new and advanced mobile customers, security is a critical component that is required not only at the network and device level, but also at the application layer to thwart man-at-the-end (MATE) attacks, such as tampering and reverse-engineering. Hackers use these attacks to gain unauthorized access, piracy, malware insertion or theft of IP. To ensure successful mobile adoption in the financial sector, industry players are seeking durable and tunable mobile application security solutions to minimize their financial risk and loss of control of financial applications that are deployed across diverse platforms and mobile devices.

WHERE: Mobile Financial Services & NFC Summit 2012, located at the Hallam Conference Centre in London. The summit confronts the challenges presented to banks, retailers and operators, and offers market leading solutions to ensure revenue and customer uptake is driven forward in 2012.

BACKGROUND: According to a recent report from Juniper Research, mobile banking users worldwide will reach 530 million by 2013, up from just over 300 million in 2011 and “financial Institutions are anticipating consumer demand by developing native smartphone and tablet applications for iPhones, iPads and Android devices.”

This growth in mobile applications is also attracting attention from hackers and attacks that target the application layer. Readily available toolkits can be used today by hackers to compromise the integrity of code through reverse engineering, disassembly and debugging. Arxan’s mobile software security solutions for native or managed code, provide automated defend, detect and react capabilities by deploying various security techniques (called Guards) such as obfuscation, checksum or anti-debug directly into the software code of each app to harden binaries against discovery and compromise. The technology protects against tampering and reverse-engineering of code and IP in a durable and proven manner which does not impact source code, application functioning or the development process.
