Mobile App Security For Banking And Payment Apps

Promon Shield Fiance Logo

World-leading App Security, Easy To Integrate, With No Negative Impact On End-users

CISOs, app developers and compliance officers in the financial industry are facing a challenge when developing mobile services. They need to have both regulatory requirements, sufficient security and user experience as their top priority. 

Promon SHIELD™ can help you secure your banking/payment apps and meet compliance, while still providing a seamless experience with no negative impact on end-users.

Mitigate Mobile Threats And Achieve Compliance

Failing to meet regulatory requirements such as GDPR, PCI, PSD2 and OWASP can have damaging consequences. To become compliant, financial services need strong solutions to safeguard their apps.

Promon SHIELD™ can help you meet the regulatory requirements. Our multi-layered App Shielding software prevents attackers from reverse engineering your app, safeguards sensitive app data, and protects your end-users from sophisticated malware.

Keeping App Data And Assets Safe

Finance apps need sufficient solutions for protecting app assets, such as API keys, certificates, One Time Passwords (OTPs) or tokens. If these assets are located and extracted, the entire security of the app collapses. Therefore, strongly protecting them should be a top priority. 

Promon App Asset Protection lets you store app data in a secure manner, both locally on the end-user device and in a published app. Our solution is unparalleled in terms of simplicity and user-friendliness, and a much better alternative to White-Box Crypto solutions. 

Prevent Tampering And Protect Your IP

An attacker can simply download an unprotected app from the official app stores, reverse-engineer it to read the underlying code, identify APIs, read file names, access sensitive data and more. 

Promon SHIELD™ protects your code and adds multiple layers of security controls to your app to make the fraudster’s job much more time consuming and expensive.

Protect User Data And Fight Mobile Malware

Malware targeting banking and payment apps are an increasing problem. By exploiting vulnerabilities and misusing the operating system features, malware can gain an advantage and steal your users’ personal data or even money. 

Promon SHIELD™ monitor the integrity of your apps and their environment in real-time and offers the market’s most comprehensive anti-malware suite. Our runtime protection is packed with features that can detect if malware is active, and actively block malware from stealing sensitive user data from your app.

Comprehensive App Security For Finance Apps


Impede attackers’ attempts to reverse-engineer and modify your app. Promon SHIELD™ makes it more difficult for attackers to spoof your app, tamper with its security controls or perform other nefarious activities.

App binding
Repackaging detection
Store data encrypted on end-users devices
Binding the data to be encrypted to the device
Whitebox backed encryption of data
Strong device binding / Fingerprinting
Automatic protection of your app assets
Suits a number of use cases where sensitive data must exist in the published app


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
Detect if apps from untrusted sources are installed on a device (Android only)
Ensure app is not altered or tampered with (e.g. by malware) at runtime
Detection & protection against StrandHogg exploits
Protection against Accessibility API abuse / UI Spoofing (overlay attacks/screen readers)
Resource verification
Hook detection


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.

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.
