Safeguard Your Source Code

Layered Security to Block Risks of Exposed Source Code

Reverse engineering is the process of analyzing a compiled app to extract information about its source code. A hacker’s main goal in reverse engineering is to comprehend your code in order to execute an attack. Safeguarding your source code is your first line of defense against threats, such as:

Intellectual Property Theft

While monetary consequences of IP theft may be indirect and deferred, the damage is significant. Consider the costs of operational disruption, lost contracts, devaluation of your trade name, and higher insurance premiums down the line.

Violations of Data Privacy Laws

If a compromised application leads to information loss or privacy violations, hefty regulatory fines and lawsuits will ensue. In heavily regulated industries, the cost of a breach can quickly reach into the millions and result in reputational damage.

Authentication Vulnerabilities

Mobile applications authenticate themselves by communicating with backend servers. Failure to protect this data exchange and the algorithm used during authentication could lead to data leaks and inadvertently give hackers access to your entire ecosystem.

Guard Your Entire Ecosystem​

Reverse-engineering allows hackers to find vulnerabilities in your app and use them to creep into your backend servers. Layered application security stops cybercriminals in their tracks and prevents them from ever getting started. 

Keep Intellectual Property Secure​​​

Your source code is the heartbeat of your business, the home of sensitive proprietary data and the basis of all other functionality in your app. It should be given the same – if not more – attention as any other critical aspect of your business, including the proper security protocols and protections.   

Safeguard Secrets from Competitors​​

Loss of source code affects more than just your bottom line—it allows competitors to get a handle on your how your innovative software products work. The right security approaches ensure that competitors can’t gain access to your code and capitalize on years of your R&D investments.
