Arxan Joins McAfee Security Innovation Alliance

Arxan Technologies, provider of application hardening solutions, has joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) program as a partner to provide application hardening and control for enterprises.

Arxan protects running applications with real-time security checks and tampering alerts. Through the McAfee SIA program, Arxan will integrate its tampering detection capabilities with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) software, to deliver customers immediate notification of external or internal attempts to tamper with software assets or steal intellectual property. By receiving notification alerts directly via the McAfee ePO database, enterprises can then respond promptly using various remediation options to thwart tampering attempts that threaten both application and corporate data security.

Today, organizations face a variety of application threats: two-thirds of externally accessible applications have exploitable vulnerabilities; insiders obtaining unauthorized systems access continues to be a top security concern, especially for PCI-regulated industries; and protecting sensitive data continues to be challenge against ever more creative and customized malware (source: Gartner).

An intelligent software protection solution, Arxan's GuardIT defends, detects and reacts to attempted attacks in order to safeguard software assets. The policy-based Guard reaction framework allows customers to select how Guard-enabled applications can detect and react at run-time. This unique layer of application security, which will now be integrated into an ePO database, grants enterprises real-time alerts of application tampering. The dynamic detection and intelligence of this integrated solution will allow customers to mitigate business risk by gaining more complete application control and business security, with no modifications required to the source code.
