Arxan to Demonstrate Mobile App Integrity Platform for Financial Apps at FinovateSpring 2013

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/13 -- Arxan Technologies, the industry-leading provider of software security solutions that protect the App Economy, today announced they will be presenting a live demo of their innovative mobile app integrity protection solution at FinovateSpring 2013.


The massive growth in consumers using mobile devices to conduct financial transactions has put the spotlight on how easily financial apps can be abused via reverse-engineering, malware and other malicious attacks. Combined with new financial technology innovations in mobile banking, mobile P2P transactions, balance transfers and payments, etc. apps have become an increasingly attractive target for hackers and therefore require self-defense and tamper-resistant attributes before they are deployed.

According to a recent Gartner survey, 60 percent of consumers shared concerns that the security of personal and payment data was one of the most significant barriers to using their phones to make mobile payments.

"The financial services industry is seeing rapid and innovative development of mobile apps, across all platforms," said Kevin Morgan, Arxan CTO and VP Engineering. "Unfortunately, attacks aimed at mobile fraud, malware distribution, device corruption and IP theft threatens to erode trust in these apps. Both companies and consumers must be confident that new technology launched in the financial services ecosystem does not compromise security." WHAT: Live demo of "Mobile App Integrity Protection for Financial Services." Finovate attendees will receive a live account of today's most innovative and deployed mobile software security solution. Arxan's platform enables their Fortune 500 customers to protect their mobile enterprises against new and sophisticated app threats, such as reverse-engineering and tampering of critical business and security code with confidence on multiple operating systems (e.g. iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone Series, Tizen, etc.).

WHO: Kevin Morgan, Arxan CTO and VP Engineering WHEN: May 15th at 1:15pm; Session #7 WHERE: FinovateSpring 2013, the Concourse Exhibition Center, San Francisco, CA.
