Game Over for Hackers and Cheaters: Arxan to Demonstrate its Innovative Online Gaming Software Security Solution at LOGIN 2010 C

MEDIA ALERT

WHO: Arxan Technologies

WHAT:

Arxan Technologies, a leading provider of software security solutions that protect applications from attack in distributed or un-trusted environments, will demonstrate its suite of products designed to protect online gaming software, to maintain the integrity of the underlying content, and to enhance the associated digital rights management (DRM) robustness.

Online game client software is extremely vulnerable to software hacking. Reverse-engineering and code modification can enable cheats resulting in customer dissatisfaction, illicit client usage, and even cloning of back-end servers for independent game operation. This is especially true for massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs). The associated DRM that may be required for game distribution is also subject to continuous circumvention and attack. The monetary and business risk to game developers is significant, prompting the need to secure the integrity of the software with unobtrusive protections that detect, defend and respond to hacking attempts.

To protect both game clients and servers, Arxan’s application hardening and key hiding protection solutions shield against tampering and reverse-engineering of code and intellectual property (IP) in a durable and proven manner which does not impact source code, application functioning or the development process. Its layered, self-protecting security techniques eliminate any single point of failure, while allowing easy renewability and resilience of security schemes in response to attempted attacks.

Arxan’s technology also safeguards revenue channels from piracy and unauthorized access across desktop, server and embedded applications, including those designed for mobile devices such as the Android™ and iPhone®.

Arxan will be reporting on new developments at the conference via Twitter. Please follow @Arxan.
