All-in-one software protection solution by Arxan
Arxan introduced the all-in-one Software Protection Solutions suite, designed to protect and respond to a variety of ISV application attacks, such as binary code modification, host-id spoofing, and key discovery.
The suite includes GuardIT for Piracy Alerting to track and monetize piracy, GuardIT for FLEXnet Publisher to ensure license management security, and GuardIT for Application Hardening to ensure code integrity and protect intellectual property – in addition to BindIT for secure node-locking against host-id spoofing, and TransformIT for software-based key protection to prevent key generation attacks.
- Piracy Alerts for ISVs: These real-time alerts help publishers characterize and monetize use of pirated software via Arxan’s Detection and Remote Notify Reaction capabilities to gather and transmit forensics information. Alerts transmit forensic intelligence regarding who is using a pirated title and where they are located, back to the ISV. This intelligence helps ISVs track ongoing losses, and supports efforts to identify unlicensed or unauthorized users. In conjunction with alerting, Arxan has historically provided free automated reports on software piracy on more than 100 software titles for more than 50 companies. Developers can request a free trial report by emailing requests to email@example.com
- Preventing Piracy and License Management Circumvention: GuardIT is a platform that protects code against tampering, reverse engineering and circumvention for native, managed and interpreted code. It allows developers to defend, detect and react to binary code modification attacks in a manner that is easy to deploy and non-disruptive to the software development process and run-time performance. GuardIT for FLEXNET Publisher hardens the license management system of an application, tightly binding itself to ensure code integrity
- Preventing Host-ID Spoofing: BindIT provides node locking for software applications. Its fingerprinting mechanisms are secured in place by implementing GuardIT in conjunction, leading to a hardened node locking solution that can reduce piracy, and increased recapture of revenue from under-licensing
- Key Transformation to Protect Secrets: Arxan’s TransformIT product is based on white box cryptography (WBC), and combines mathematical algorithms, data and code obfuscation techniques to conceal secret key and related operations. With transformation, the key never is revealed, and therefore can better safeguard assets.
