Verimatrix (Paris: VMX) (Euronext Paris: VMX), leaders in powering the modern networked world with person-centered security, today announced an unprecedented new level of protection for bitcode-enabled people iOSApplications. Publishing an application to the Apple App Store with bitcode enabled allows Apple to optimize the application’s code for each target device.
For the first time, developers are now able to provide much-needed tamper protection for the rapidly growing bitcode iOS market. With a new resilient anti-tampering feature, Verimatrix’s family of award-winning application shielding solutions now have powerful technology that compares the application’s actions with those when the user first launched it.
The ongoing comparison identifies potentially dangerous manipulations by cyber criminals and offers unsurpassed security for bitcode applications and the data associated with them. So far, applying anti-tampering technology to bitcode has been a challenge because it is Apple, not the developer, who creates the final form of the software in order to optimize it for each device.
“Apple’s drive to expand the use of bitcode among developers usually goes unnoticed by end users, but it poses a challenge for developers looking to adopt anti-tampering technology and we are pleased to play a vital role in it to play the development of new anti-tampering approaches that prevent hackers from accessing sensitive data, “said Martin Bergenwall, Verimatrix senior vice president of products. “Our Elastic Anti-Tamper technologies meet an important need in the industry. They serve as another differentiator for our family of application shielding solutions that many of the world’s leading brands rely on. This non-stop innovation is the driver of the continuous Verimatrix’s success in software security. ”
The company also plans to provide developers with additional tools to protect bitcode-related applications that use a novel crowdsourcing approach to further identify negative actors. The upcoming protective wall, which should be generally available in Q4 2020, uses a consensus server that uses the power of the entire installed base of the application to detect tampering. This confirms Verimatrix’s commitment to providing developers with security services that will work even if the final code format is updated or changed by Apple in the future. This is another first in the industry.
Verimatrix’s Elastic Anti-Tamper capabilities provide significant time savings and improved protection, helping developers position themselves as well-coordinated, security-conscious professionals who prioritize the security of their end users and their data.
