Prevent cheating and protect the future of gaming experiences

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, and prevent revenue loss.

With Promon SHIELD™ you can quickly turn your gaming apps into self-protecting apps – without compromising the gaming experience.

Prevent Tampering And Cheating

Cheating can cause players to abandon a game, destroy its success and force a gaming company to write off a total product failure. Controlling the growing risks from attackers and cheaters is required to fully protect a gaming company’s business model.

Promon SHIELD™ will help you protect your game and react in real-time to threats. Our security mechanisms will prevent attackers from reverse engineering and tampering with your app.

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.

Promon SHIELD™’s security features will protect your app against a number of threats and helps protect your app’s integrity and brand reputation.

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.

Promon SHIELD™ protects your code and adds multiple layers of security controls to your app to make it difficult for an attacker to reverse engineer your app, repackage and clone it.

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.

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