Security Software Glossary

In our industry there are many different terminologies, we have put together a technical glossary that describes this in more detail and that will help increase the understanding of our products and market. 

Application Hardening

Vulnerable mobile devices and the prevalence of the Internet of Things (IoT) have created an urgent need for application hardening. By implementing hardening measures, you protect your apps against reverse engineering, tampering, and malware attacks

Read more about Application Hardening and the different methods of protecting your app. 

Application Shielding

Application shielding should be your first line of defence when securing your apps. Key benefits include protection from the inside out, reduced risk of attacks, and real-time adjustments to stop potential attacks.

Learn more about how Application Shielding works and how it safeguards your application. 

Code Obfuscation

Developers use code obfuscation techniques to prevent cybercriminals from decompiling and reverse engineering source code. You will require a more exhaustive app security solution combining code obfuscation techniques with runtime protection to protect your apps completely.

Read more about how Code Obfuscation protects an app’s source code.

Mobile App Security

As applications are progressively connected to the cloud and are available over various networks, they are increasingly vulnerable to security threats and breaches. The evolving cybersecurity landscape requires businesses to protect their apps from the inside out.

Read about Mobile App Security technologies and best practices.

Reverse Engineering

Security researchers reverse engineer code to map security risks, understand malicious applications and disrupt them. Researchers are not the only ones doing this. Bad actors also want to find flaws and vulnerabilities through reverse engineering. Potential impacts include intellectual property theft, reputational damage, identity theft, and compromised backend systems.

Learn more about Reverse engineering techniques and how to protect your mobile apps. 

Runtime Protection

One way of dealing with cyber threats is to let your apps protect themselves. By using runtime protection, your apps can surround themselves with a shield that identifies and blocks cyberattacks in real-time.

Read more about how Runtime application self-protection makes your apps protect themselves. 

White-Box Cryptography

Every application that processes encrypted information uses cryptographic keys to decrypt and encrypt incoming and outgoing data. Hackers can easily lift unprotected keys through reverse engineering, memory analysis, side-channel attacks, and other techniques. This is where white-box cryptography comes in.

Read more about how White-Box Cryptography technology embeds secret keys.
