Irdeto launched Trusted Software, a service designed to offer flexibility and efficiency to developers and organizations facing cybersecurity challenges.
Hosted in the cloud, Trusted Software automates iOS and Android app protection with a drag-and-drop interface. Optimized with machine learning, the new service provides organizations with assurance that apps are protected against hackers and cyberthreats.
The Internet of Things and “appification” have spawned digital disruption across a multitude of industries, making devices and applications that organizations implement or develop a target for hackers. In fact, an Irdeto survey found 80 percent of organizations in transport, manufacturing and healthcare have experienced a cyberattack on their IoT devices in the past 12 months.
Despite this clear recognition of vulnerabilities, organizations struggle to find the staff, expertise or budget to properly secure applications. Irdeto Trusted Software addresses that challenge by automatically protecting applications from hackers trying to copy or clone apps, reverse engineer intellectual property or steal credentials, services and critical data.
Trusted Software takes app-store-ready applications as a starting point. Trusted Software then returns a protected application that is ready for posting to the app store, eliminating the need for the organization to spend time or resources securing mobile apps. The service also prevents organizations from needing to develop or hire the necessary skillsets to ensure proper cybersecurity of mobile apps is obtained.
“We recognize that businesses today have to balance many different priorities when it comes to cybersecurity,” said Jaco Du Plooy, vice president of IoT security at Irdeto. “We also realize that many organizations do not have the staff, budget or resources to protect every application that they either develop or use.”
