Arxan Experiences Explosive First Half of 2016 as IoT Adoption Grows

Leading Provider of Application Attack Prevention and Self-Protection Solutions Announces Corporate Growth, Product Innovation, and Industry Recognition

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - August 02, 2016) - Arxan Technologies, the trusted provider of application attack prevention and self-protection solutions, announced it has closed the first half of 2016 with record-breaking corporate growth, strong industry recognition and product innovation. Fueled by rapid Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile application adoption, and a need for proactive security against new attacks, today Arxan is protecting applications on over 500 million devices around the world.

According to Gartner, "Applications, not the infrastructure, represent the main attack vector for data exfiltration. As organizations lose more control over their infrastructure with trends like mobility and cloud, applications become one of the last control points for imposing the organization's security policy."(1) Arxan's patented guarding technology defends, detects and deters attacks by stopping, alerting or repairing detected attacks at rest, transit, and run-time. Arxan software protects applications on mobile devices, desktops, servers, and embedded platforms, including those connected as part of the IoT, in various key sectors such as mobile banking, mobile payments, connected cars, connected medical devices, gaming, and digital media.

"2016 is off to an extraordinary start, but this is just the beginning," said Joe Sander, CEO of Arxan Technologies. "Our rapid growth and industry recognition underscores the market need for comprehensive application security at the binary level to ensure resilience and prevent hacker attacks in real-time. We're looking forward to building on this momentum as we continue to drive innovation."
