As mobile financial services evolve, they are susceptible to a set of emerging mobile application risks and attacks.
According to the “Proliferating Mobile Transaction Attack Vectors and What to Do About Them” March 2013 report by Gartner, “The means to commit mobile transaction fraud are rampant, although criminals have yet to develop pervasive exploits. Gartner believes that this situation will change dramatically in the next three years as more transactions are executed from mobile platforms.” Gartner recommends to, “evaluate and use software that attempts to immunize the mobile application so that it can defend itself against tampering and criminal hacking.”

The company’s multi-layered and multi-platform protection consists of a variety of security technologies, including passive and active defenses such as: obfuscation, anti-debug, repair, self-healing and anti-tamper to ensure durability, resiliency and performance in the field.
