- Product Research & Development
Years of research and development were invested by the company into their biometric sensor technology. They wanted to ensure that their unique, patented intellectual property (IP) was not compromised or cloned through application attacks, such as reverse-engineering or code tampering. This was particularly important given the increased competitive pressures in the wearables market and the customer’s distribution model of working in partnership with consumer product manufacturers and potentially third party developers. Although patented and protected under NDA, the company’s code and IP could potentially be exposed during the sharing of their technology (in the form of an SDK/library) during integration as partners work to turn their wearable products into biometric wearables. The customer also required ease of use and flexibility such that their proprietary technology could first be easily protected and then be leveraged within another 3rd party application. As such, the solution needed to meet stringent resource consumption requirements of diverse mobile / IoT platforms.
Valencell sought an application security solution that met their protection requirements to prevent application attacks. Already familiar with Arxan’s reputation as a leader in application security, they chose Arxan Code Protection solutions to deliver best-of-breed application protection. The solution provides self-defending and tamper-resistant attributes against static or run-time reverse-engineering or code modification attacks. The process included a short evaluation period where success was measured around several key performance and strength of security metrics. Arxan Code Protection was efficiently applied to their SDK/library with initial guidance on risk identification/mitigation techniques and application security best practices from Arxan’s security team.
