DexProtector 11 Released

In anticipation of the official announcement of Android 11 and WWDC 2020, we are releasing a new version of DexProtector that supports Android 11, XCode 11.5, and provides Attack Telemetry and Threat Intelligence.

To supply our customers with instant updates and upgrades of DexProtector, we release on-demand versions almost every day. They incorporate fixes, feature-requests, security, and performance improvements. Official releases reflect the landscape of the mobile ecosystem, current threats, and measures to eliminate them.

One of the major events this summer is the official release of Android 11, and later this year, the release of a new version of iOS. In the latest version of DexProtector, we adapted and improved all the protection mechanisms so that protected apps work great on the latest versions of operating systems, and DexProtector itself works with the latest versions of build tools.

The industry of in-app protection and real-time application self-protection (RASP) is probably one of the most dynamic and rapidly developing fields of Mobile Application Security. Especially with the drastically increased use of sensitive mobile apps due to COVID-19. We have seen a significant increase in attacks on mobile apps, both static, tampering, and dynamic. The great news is that DexProtector now provides an effortless and transparent way of accessing all the attack telemetry data and threat intelligence, it is just one line in your DexProtector's configuration file.

Also worth mentioning the immense adoption of hybrid apps (JavaScript-based) and low-code development platforms across all the industries, including FinTech, MedTech and public sector. We have been working in close cooperation with our customers to provide them with robust ways to protect such apps, including apps targeting the iOS platform. This also applies to apps that do not have bitcode in them, which is crucial for hybrid apps and apps produced with proprietary low-code platforms.

Last but not least, the security of cashless transactions that involves payment and wallet mobile apps is becoming even more critical these days. We have conducted numerous certifications of mobile payment apps, including software POS solutions with leading security labs and payment systems. For such projects and beyond, when it comes to highly sensitive and regulated industries, we recommend utilizing our CryptoModule, it instantly moves all the crypto-related operations and storing of key material into an isolated application that runs on top of our secure self-defending virtual machine.

Be safe and secure your mobile apps and clients with the new version of DexProtector.
