JavaScript based applications to get new security protection offering from Arxan.

Arxan Technologies, a provider of application protection and management solutions, has announced Arxan Application Protection for JavaScript, a new offering that provides leading protection for JavaScript-based applications, including hybrid iOS and Android apps, in addition to web apps. The comprehensive solution is designed to prevent brand damage, financial loss, IP theft and compliance risk.

JavaScript provides a host of benefits when developing applications, but inherently comes with significant security issues that expose a company to risks that will damage their brand and credibility,” said Rusty Carter, VP of Product Management at Arxan Technologies. “We have developed a solution that empowers our customers to take advantage of JavaScript without sacrificing security, making their applications self-protecting and resilient against reverse-engineering and code tampering, while also protecting cryptographic keys, sensitive data and communication with server APIs. These new capabilities will protect businesses from breaches and disclosures, impersonation, cheating, exploitation and theft of intellectual property and digital assets.”

Key features

- Compatible with ES5 and ES6
- Cordova/Phonegap and Node.js support
- Interactive protection design with guidance
- Easy to use, fully tunable and customizable protection design
- Effortless generation of unique protections
- API to integrate seamlessly into build automation
- Comprehensive security, including integrity and anti-tamper capabilities

JavaScript and HTML5 have become truly pervasive and are now a critical part of mobile, web and even server side and embedded applications deployed in source form, yet they are highly vulnerable to attacks,” said Sam Rehman, CTO of Arxan Technologies. “Our new product will enable enterprises to protect their applications and services containing JavaScript code, allowing apps to run safely anywhere, inside and outside of a firewall. The addition strengthens our product suite, which is already the gold standard for protecting binary code, cryptographic keys and data for mobile, IoT and other applications.”
