Why it is important to protect gaming apps
As mobile gaming continues to be increasingly connected, more attackers are taking advantage of the lack of proper security in gaming apps to tamper with the app to cheat, steal sensitive app data or steal revenue. Game publishers need to control the growing risks from attackers and cheaters to keep their players, protect brand reputation, keep app store ratings high, and ultimately prevent revenue loss.
Prevent tampering and cheating
Cheating can cause players to abandon a game, destroy its success and force a gaming company to write it off as a total product failure. Controlling the growing risks from attackers and cheaters is required to fully protect a gaming company’s business model.
Prevent app cloning and loss of revenue
There’s a lot of money in gaming, which makes gaming apps an appealing target for hackers. As a mobile gaming app provider, you need to take measures to prevent hackers from cloning your app and stealing revenue.
Protect your brand
If hackers find ways to cheat in your game, it can damage your brand reputation. Players value fairness in games, and cheating negatively impacts the honest gamers’ experience. Excessive cheating in one game can damage that game’s reputation, but also indirectly influence the success of a publisher’s future games.
Keep app data and assets safe
Game apps that provide in-game currency or wallets need solutions for securely protecting app assets stored locally on the device to prevent theft of currency and other sensitive app data.
