Arxan expands application protection to Apple TV

Application protection provider Arxan Technologies, has announced expanded application security protections for the Apple tvOS platform.

A number of the applications which come pre-installed on the newly announced Apple TV are already protected by Arxan with the most advanced application security measures designed to assure app performance, protect sensitive data, and prevent tampering, reverse-engineering, and cryptographic key exposure.

The Apple tvOS apps protected by Arxan are using multi-layered guards, inserted within the binary code of the applications following the development process. The guards protect the application from being reverse-engineered and compromised at run-time. In addition, cryptographic keys contained within the applications are transformed to mitigate the risk of them being identified within the code or in memory at run-time.

“App developers have learned many lessons from iOS apps over the years, particularly the need to bake more robust protection into the apps before they are released ‘into the wild’, and they are now applying those lessons to Apple tvOS,” states Vince Arneja, VP of Product Management at Arxan. “The apps on the new Apple TV are responsible for delivering an exceptional customer experience, and to do that they must be secure and trusted.”
