Application Shielding And RASP (Runtime Application Self-Protection) For Banking And Payment Apps

Application Shielding for Finance Apps

Promon SHIELD™ is a security add-on providing self-protection abilities to services and app(lication)s. This is the category that GARTNER defines as Application Shielding.

With Promon SHIELD™ the app is self-protecting and protection is restricted to the application only. With Promon SHIELD™ the attack is blocked by the application itself and the application continues to operate securely.

  • Secure data at rest
  • Blocks both known and unknown threats
  • Detect and defend against the evolving mobile threats
  • Respond immediately to attacks to prevent breaches
About Promon SHIELD™

PROTECT

Impede attackers’ attempts to reverse-engineer and modify your app. With strong encryption and code obfuscation, Promon SHIELD™ render your apps’ code useless to miscreants – making it more difficult for them to spoof your app, tamper with its security controls or perform other nefarious activities.

Code obfuscation
App binding
Repackaging detection
App communication
TLS certificate pinning
Client authentication using a client-certificate
Identifying the app/device as an authentication factor
Store data encrypted inside the app
Binding the data to be encrypted to the device
Whitebox cryptography
App Management Solution
Trusted binding between a user, an app and the device
Making the app trusted without external security tokens
Registration / activation – securely pair the app / device with the user.

DETECT

Monitor your mobile app’s runtime behavior. Detect whether the app is executing in an insecure environment such as on a rooted (Android) or jailbroken (iOS) device. Mitigate the risks of overlay attacks, debuggers, emulators, and other means by which attackers examine, penetrate, and compromise a mobile app.

Ensure app is running in safe environment
Debugger detection
Jailbreak / Root detection
Emulator detection
Ensure app is not altered or tampered with (e.g. by malware) at runtime
Checksum
Overlay Detection
Resource verification
Hook detection

REACT

Upon detecting malicious activity, an app protected by Promon SHIELD™ will modify its behavior in real time to interrupt potential attacks. Response actions include blocking execution of injected code, notifying security administrators, and terminating the infected app to stop the execution of a compromised app.

Shutdown (Exit / Fail)
Integrity checking
Custom reactions
Screenshot detection / blocking
Anti keylogging
Anti screenreading
Alert / reporting
Blocking external screens
Prevent brute force decryption of sensitive information
Easy deployment!

You can easily turn your banking and payment apps into a self-protecting app. Your Android and iOS apps can be quickly uploaded and secured in minutes by using our integration tool, or an SDK that is easily integrated into the app. Once secured, the app is immediately ready for distribution via public app stores.
