Arxan to Demonstrate Mobile App Integrity Platform for Financial Apps at FinovateSpring 2013

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/13 -- Arxan Technologies, the industry-leading provider of software security solutions that protect the App Economy, today announced they will be presenting a live demo of their innovative mobile app integrity protection solution at FinovateSpring 2013.

The massive growth in consumers using mobile devices to conduct financial transactions has put the spotlight on how easily financial apps can be abused via reverse-engineering, malware and other malicious attacks. Combined with new financial technology innovations in mobile banking, mobile P2P transactions, balance transfers and payments, etc. apps have become an increasingly attractive target for hackers and therefore require self-defense and tamper-resistant attributes before they are deployed.

According to a recent Gartner survey, 60 percent of consumers shared concerns that the security of personal and payment data was one of the most significant barriers to using their phones to make mobile payments.

"The financial services industry is seeing rapid and innovative development of mobile apps, across all platforms," said Kevin Morgan, Arxan CTO and VP Engineering. "Unfortunately, attacks aimed at mobile fraud, malware distribution, device corruption and IP theft threatens to erode trust in these apps. Both companies and consumers must be confident that new technology launched in the financial services ecosystem does not compromise security." WHAT: Live demo of "Mobile App Integrity Protection for Financial Services." Finovate attendees will receive a live account of today's most innovative and deployed mobile software security solution. Arxan's platform enables their Fortune 500 customers to protect their mobile enterprises against new and sophisticated app threats, such as reverse-engineering and tampering of critical business and security code with confidence on multiple operating systems (e.g. iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone Series, Tizen, etc.).

WHO: Kevin Morgan, Arxan CTO and VP Engineering WHEN: May 15th at 1:15pm; Session #7 WHERE: FinovateSpring 2013, the Concourse Exhibition Center, San Francisco, CA.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
