Arxan Technologies Succeeding in Global Technology Awards

Arxan's Mobile App Security Solutions Named Winner of Infosecurity Global Excellence Award and Announced as Finalists by SC Magazine and FSTech Awards

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2014) - Arxan Technologies, the industry-leading provider of software security solutions that protect the App Economy, has been named a winner in the Products and Services Excellence category of the Infosecurity Global Excellence Awards. Arxan's Mobile Application Integrity Protection™ Suite v5.0 has also been shortlisted for the "Mobile Technology Provider of the Year" by the FSTech Awards, and as the "Best Mobile Security Solution" for the SC Magazine Europe awards. The three accolades follow a successful year for Arxan which saw significant updates to its mobile application protections solutions, along with the launch of its new Jailbreak/Root Detection and Resource Verification Guards.

"We're thrilled to have won the prestigious award from Infosecurity alongside being shortlisted by two top UK technology awards which highlights our continued efforts to bring innovative mobile application security solutions to our clients," said Patrick Kehoe, CMO of Arxan Technologies. "The widespread use of cracked apps represents a clear and present danger given the explosion of smartphone and tablet use in the workplace and at home, and Arxan is dedicated to delivering innovative solutions that can help protect the app economy."

Industry recognition on the need for binary code security has also emerged. For the first time ever, the open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) now lists 'lack of binary protections' as a key mobile app security threat. The OWASP community includes leading corporations, educational organizations, and individuals from around the world focused on improving the security of software. As an OWASP member, Arxan actively works to educate industry on application risk. Arxan recently published an updated version of its Mobile Application Protection Handbook which provides an overview of the mobile application risk landscape. 

Arxan's binary code protection is a core component of Hana Bank's financial services mobile solution, which won the Asian Banker's Association's Technology Implementation Award in the category of "Best Mobile Security Project in 2014." As financial applications require high levels of security, various defences against possible hacking and code modification activities can now be embedded directly into financial applications. As part of the winning security solution, Arxan's guarding technology protects the app using obfuscation and encryption.

Now in its 14th year, the FSTech Awards recognise excellence and innovation in the field of information technology within the UK and EMEA financial services sector. Winning entries come from financial services institutions and technology suppliers who are leading the way in such areas as social media, customer service, compliance, mobile, online, systems integration, outsourcing and data governance. The FSTech awards will take place on March 27 at the Lancaster Hotel, London.

The SC Magazine Europe awards honour professionals working to secure enterprises of all sizes and the vendors that deliver innovative security technologies. The SC awards will take place on April 29 at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London.
