Arxan Technologies, the leading provider of application protection solutions, today announced the extension of its application protection platform to support apps built on Android on Intel Architecture. Arxan will be offering the full strength of its product offering for the Intel® Atom™ Processor. Already known for its application protection footprint in the ARM/Mobile and Intel/Desktop markets, Arxan’s expanded protection will now be available for Intel® tablets.
“Enterprises, gaming, digital media, and entertainment companies depend on Arxan to deliver robust application protection across a broad array of devices,” said Sam Rehman, Chief Technology Officer of Arxan. “By expanding our protection suite of products, we are able to provide the best mobile application security to the widest possible scope of devices in the coming months and years. Customers demand cross-platform products and solutions in today’s connected environments, and Arxan continues to deliver to that promise.”
Today’s announcement also impacts the assurance of mobile application security on tablets within enterprise businesses. For companies that standardize on 64-bit applications and operating systems, Intel Atom x5 and x7 processors with 64-bit support will be able to extend existing software investments to new enterprise-class tablets. This compatibility will allow companies to more easily provision new tablets to employees, simplify support, reduce costs, and speed up deployments, while preparing for 64-bit applications and usages yet to come.
Rehman added that “Arxan’s extension of mobile application protection to Intel®’s Atom™ Processor provides additional safeguarding choices in the ever-changing mobile and tablet landscape.” Intel is the second-largest supplier of tablet system-on-chips (SoCs) behind Apple.
With Arxan’s security, applications are protected while stored on mobile devices from reverse engineering and also protected at runtime from tampering and emerging malicious exploits. Arxan’s solution is protecting applications running on over 300 million devices today — and that number will grow to include high performing Intel-based devices moving forward.
