Arxan, Symantec and Twitter to Discuss Key Mobile Application Security Strategies to Defend Against the Latest Threats: Application Attacks

Leading Security Experts to Explore Today's Threat Landscape in the App Economy and Offer Key Insights on Counter Measures to Rising App Attacks, Such as Malware

BETHESDA, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Arxan Technologies, a leading provider of software security solutions that protect the global App Economy, announced today it will participate in a mobile application security webinar with Symantec and Twitter to address the latest security threats to the App Economy as organizations adopt mobile devices to deliver sensitive data and applications to consumers, partners and employees. The expert panel will also provide insight on proven risk mitigation best practices for organizations to defend against the growing number of application attack vectors.

The "Mobile Application Security: How to Respond to the Latest Threats" webinar takes place today (Nov. 28) at 10 a.m. EST. To register, please visit: http://www.bankinfosecurity.com/webinars/mobile-application-security-how-to-respond-to-latest-threats-w-304

Participating in the webinar are Dr. Hoi Chang, vice president of technology and chief software architect, Arxan Technologies, Brian Duckering, senior manager - Enterprise Mobility, Symantec, and famed security researcher Charlie Miller, security engineer for Twitter.

Organizations are deploying mobile applications to run critical processes or deliver services through web, client or hybrid apps. As highly critical sectors, such as the financial industry, continue to innovate via the adoption of new mobile services, such as mobile banking, peer-to-peer transactions or bill payment, the underlying consumer-facing or internal applications that reside in or communicate with mobile devices, now host tremendous value and functionality. The application layer for Android, BlackBerry, iOS, Windows Phone, etc. mobile devices has become a clear target for hackers and is subject to both vulnerability-based attacks which exploit programming flaws as well as a new array of reverse-engineering and tampering attacks, such as malware, which compromise overall application integrity.

Mobile device security and application management measures need to be augmented by proven mobile app security strategies, including application hardening. Today's global hackers can easily disarm the various layers of an organization's mobile security framework, such as jailbreak detection or authentication logic, enabling the theft of sensitive user credentials to commit fraud and inflict damage resulting in financial losses or brand compromise. App integrity requirements to protect against malware insertion are paramount and require security at the binary level to defend against app hacking attacks and to enable organizations to deploy self-defending, tamper-proof mobile apps.

The webinar will address:

  • The current threat landscape, including exploitations, and mobile malware, app reverse engineering and tampering;
  • How to ensure use of secure mobile applications;
  • How to target mobile security defense to protect not just the device, but the data and apps.

Webinar attendees will learn:

  • Counter measures to thwart the top mobile application security threats;
  • How to separate fact from fiction concerning mobile malware and its threat to data and apps;
  • Why mobile device management and mobile application management require complementary security strategies to fully protect apps; and,
  • How to re-train organizational security teams to overcome the inherent challenges of managing, developing and securing mobile apps.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
