Stay one step ahead of hackers.

Data shows that globally, 36 out of every 1000 Android devices are rooted. Attackers use rooting as a means to better understand how your app executes, to modify your app’s behavior while it runs or to steal sensitive data. Verimatrix XTD offers automated root detection so you can trust that your app is only executing in safe Android environments.

The dangers of running on a rooted device.

Loss of control

On rooted devices, hackers can modify your app, run scripts that steal data, and they can even compromise non-shared areas, like your app sandbox.

User abuse

Once rooted, a hacker has full administrative control over the device and can use it to present the user with false or malicious information.

Malware attacks

Rooted devices make it easier for hackers to deliver, update and automate malware attacks, often lifting sensitive personal data straight out the app.

Benefits of automated root detection with Verimatrix XTD.

Leverage security beyond the sandbox

Blindy trusting the integrity of sandboxes for app security is risky —they can only protect your app instance if their integrity hasn’t been compromised. Commercial grade root detection protects your app by validating that excessive privileges haven’t been granted by a rooted device.

If your app processes a user’s personal information, you are bound by data regulations to use reasonable and appropriate security measures to defend against common vulnerabilities like rooting.

Easy to configure and no code required

No specialist security knowledge is required to deploy  XTD's easily configurable shielding solutions. Leverage zero code options that detect and protect against rooting, allowing you to stay on track with your development. Build self-defending apps with automated, intelligent security solutions you can trust.

Customize threat reactions based on your needs

XTD's flexible shielding solutions enable your team to customize your application’s reaction based on detected threats—other security solutions will simply disable your app altogether.

With customizable security, you can block the usage of certain  features rather than shutting down your entire operation to ensure that your business is not disrupted.
