Arxan currently protects more than 1bn application instances across a wide range of industries.

This approach protects the source and binary code to expand the corporate perimeter of trust. We protect customers against financial loss, brand damage, fraud, IP theft, stolen credentials, fraudulent transactions, unauthorised access, and non-compliance with regulatory and industry standards. Arxan provides a broad range of patented security capabilities such as a dynamic app policy engine, code hardening, obfuscation, white-box cryptography and encryption, and threat analytics.
