Protect Your Mobile Apps
From Reverse Engineering

Reverse Engineering is often overlooked as the root from which all fraud derives. Fraudsters use techniques such as static and dynamic code analysis to learn how your app functions. With this knowledge, hackers can attack your app by exploiting your app’s weaknesses and vulnerabilities. One application of reverse engineering, app install fraud, was reported to have led to $1.4B in losses in the first half of 2020. Learn how you can prevent reverse engineering of any Android or iOS app. 

Top Threats Resulting from Reverse Engineering

Static Analysis Used to Create Exploits

Hackers and use decompilers, disassemblers, and code tracing to create exploits, malware, cheat engines and get information used in launching malicious attacks.

Malicious Debugging and Dynamic Binary Instrumentation

Fraudsters use debuggers, simulators and emulators to interact with an app at runtime, bypass security built into the apps and then use their access to inject malicious code.

App Tampering and Repackaging App

Fraudsters use the data learned from static and dynamic analysis to tamper with and create malicious versions of the app. Hackers repackage the app into something else.

Prevent the use static and dynamic analysis of your mobile apps which hackers use to understand your code and how your app works. Start your 5-day free trial and see how easy it is to protect your app against all forms of reverse engineering tools, methods and techniques.

Fast and Easy Code Obfuscation

Prevent reverse engineering of mobile apps with the use of Dex2JAR, Baksmali, JD-GUI, IDA-Pro, and Ghidra. Hackers use these tools to disassemble and decompile apps to access the source code. Obfuscate any Android and iOS apps without source code or SDKs. Stop hackers from using static analysis tools to reverse engineering your apps written in Swift, Objective C, Kotlin and Java.

Obfuscate Non-Native Frameworks

Obfuscate non-native frameworks like Cordova JS, React Native JS, Xamarin DLL, Flutter, Ionic, Unity, including obfuscating Xamarin and Unity reflections, 3rd-party libraries, SDKs and non-native components inside mobile application code.  Stop static analysis tools from reverse engineering mobile apps to understand your code and app logic.

Block Malicious Debugging and Prevent Tampering

Block native and Java debugging tools from attaching to your Android or iOS app. Block advanced methods, including dynamic analysis tools like Apktool, Java Debugger (JDB), LLDB and more.

Prevent the Use of Emulators and Simulators for Cheating Games or Hacking Apps

Prevent reverse engineering by execution and running an Android or iOS app on emulators, simulators and other virtualized programs used in mobile cheating and mobile hacking.

Block Malicious use of Frida Toolkits

Prevent malware class, dynamic instrumentation toolkits like Frida and similar toolkits from being used to interfere with your app, change app behavior, trick users, inject code, change memory or create fake events.

Stop the Misuse of ADB

Stop the use of ADB (Android Debug Bridge) to launch large scale credential stuffing and other attacks. Fraudsters use these tools and methods to automatically create multiple accounts, test out exploits, and scale malicious efforts.
