The Problem

Mobile gaming and entertainment apps are popular ways to relax and find a competitive outlet. These apps also provide their makers with valuable revenue streams. 

In fact, with 45% of total gaming market share, mobile apps are the #1 platform for games today. 

But many mobile gaming and entertainment apps are not sufficiently secured and are at risk for security breaches and financial losses.

Fraudsters, hackers, and cheaters can:

  • Build & distribute tweaks
  • Steal financial credentials
  • Cheat & make it easier for others to cheat
  • Subvert in-app revenue streams
  • Access sensitive user information
  • & more

With tens of billions of dollars on the line, apps makers cannot afford to ignore security.

  • CODE HARDENING

    How it works:

    Hardening the code at various levels throughout the application protects against static attacks. Multiple layers of obfuscation and encryption make code resistant to both automated and manual analysis. 

    Techniques include obfuscation and encryption, which defend both the app and its valuable data.

  • RUNTIME APPLICATION SELF-PROTECTION

    How it works:

    RASP mechanisms monitor the integrity of the apps and their environment in real time. When a threat arises, the apps can terminate the hacker’s session, display security notifications to the developer, and more.

    RASP also ensures communication between the mobile app and server is secure.
