Safeguard Your Source Code

Prevent Reverse-Engineering with Layered Security

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. When it comes to app protection, safeguarding source code to prevent reverse-engineering is your first line of defense.

The Risks of Exposed Source Code

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.

Protect the Pulse of Your Business

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. 

Anti-Reverse Engineering Techniques

Code Obfuscation

Prevent the static analysis of your code by renaming functions, methods, classes and making your app logic difficult for hackers to comprehend.

Anti-Tamper

Build a network of micro-checks to prevent any modification and ensure that your code will only execute within the context of your app.

Environmental Checks

Stop hackers from performing dynamic analysis of your code and trust that it will only execute in safe devices and environments.
