Verimatrix, (Euronext Paris: VMX) (Paris:VMX), the leader in powering the modern connected world with people-centered security, today announced that its App Shield Pro was named Application Security Solution of the Year in the 6th annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.
Part of the Verimatrix Extended Threat Defense family of products that includes a robust monitoring service, App Shield enables apps (Android APK and iOS xcarchive) to be powerfully protected in just minutes via a fast and cost-effective cloud solution. With no integrations required, developers simply upload their app and receive protection against reverse engineering, application repackaging, dynamic modification, and debuggers. It automatically detects when an app is under attack, quickly alerting and, if needed, can even terminate its own operation – shutting down the threat before damage occurs.
“Without powerful protections, app developers are often bogged down with the additional job of finding ways to protect their vital intellectual property, source code, APIs and personal data,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “Having to change code or deal with integrations is time-consuming and often doesn’t yield the required protective results. App Shield is a no-code SaaS service that delivers breakthrough cybersecurity protection to any Android or iOS app, protecting against potentially devastating threats. Congratulations to Verimatrix for taking home the 2022 ‘Application Security Solution of the Year’ award win.”
“We’re honored to see one of our Extended Threat Defense technologies obtain ongoing industry recognition, as this particular award is received alongside some of tech’s most recognized innovators,” said Juha Högmander, vice president, cybersecurity business at Verimatrix. “App Shield brings automated, intelligent and self-defending technologies to companies that need it most – to protect their customers as well as their bottom line.”
