Arxan Now Protecting More Than 1 Billion Apps

Corporate growth driven by enterprise solutions, executive hires, product innovation and industry recognition

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - July 11, 2017) - Arxan Technologies, the trusted leader for application protection solutions, today announced milestones from the first half of 2017, illustrating exceptional growth and leadership in the mobile application security market. Through accelerated product innovation and industry recognition, Arxan has positioned itself as an established, world-class solution provider, trusted by leading enterprises to provide robust security for consumer and enterprise apps deployed in uncertain environments.

Over the last six months, Arxan has experienced a tremendous increase in the number of inbound inquiries from enterprises seeking to better protect their high-value applications as more organizations are deploying apps into untrusted environments. Arxan expects this trend to continue and is investing in its leadership, services, and products to capitalize on these market and customer trends.

"We've seen a notable shift in how enterprises are approaching app security, which has been a big driver of our growth," said Joe Sander, CEO of Arxan. "While many organizations have legacy security tools in place, those approaches are not equipped to protect apps distributed outside the enterprise perimeter to uncertain environments. Our focus on protection at the app's foundation level in conjunction with enterprise services and threat intelligence enables our customers to innovate with confidence and to execute market-leading mobile strategies knowing that their most valuable apps are protected."

According to Gartner's "Market Guide for Application Shielding", which was published in June 2017, "Protecting applications that run within untrusted environments is ever more crucial as mobile and IoT become ubiquitous, and as web applications modernize, bringing more intelligence to the client. Security and risk management leaders must apply shielding selectively to close security gaps."

Also noted in the same Gartner report, "Market Guide for Application Shielding", "by 2020, 30% of enterprises will use application shielding to protect at least one of their mobile, IoT and JavaScript critical applications."

The company provides enterprise customer success programs, operates an advanced threat team who monitor for potential customer attacks and provide emergency response if needed, and analytics and threat intelligence for monitoring app security.
