In business, software attacks and intellectual property theft mainly pose a threat to a company’s bottom line. The stakes are getting higher and higher. Now, IP theft and sophisticated software hackers pose significant threats to national security and defense, personal privacy, and government operations as well.
Software applications can be protected using advanced software protection techniques to conceal and harden proprietary algorithms and secrets, including cryptographic keys. Once protected, these applications can be safely deployed on untrusted hosts and in hostile environments such as mobile and IoT devices.
Pervasive threats to software security include reverse engineering, software tampering, copying / cloning, and automated attacks. A successful security strategy against these threats is a multi-dimensional approach – data security, network / API security and software protection. Software protection often becomes the last and most critical line of defense.
Software protection includes advanced cybersecurity technologies, libraries and tools that enable users to customize the protection of their critical digital assets such as keys, code and data. Software protection is particularly useful for security savvy organizations that want the very best in renewable software security.
