App Shielding

Welcome to the App Shielding Blog Series

App Shielding (aka Application Shielding or App Hardening) is an important tool that developers have to protect their apps against hackers, app modifications (app mods), fake apps, mobile threats, malware, mobile fraud, the app being used as a trojan horse and more. Appdome ONEShield™ is a self-defending RASP solution that protects Android and iOS apps with anti-tampering, anti-debugging, anti-reversing, checksum validation, and more and prevents apps from running on simulators and emulators.

This blog series provides developers a rich perspective and insight on Android and iOS app shielding. Subscribe today to stay in the know on trends and news around app shielding and app hardening.
