Arxan to Present at 1st Workshop on Virtual Machine Security (VMSec)

Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) October 30, 2008

Arxan Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of application hardening solutions designed to protect software applications from tampering to minimize risk and maximize profitability, today announces the Company’s participation at the 1st Workshop on Virtual Machine Security (VMSec), taking place in conjunction with the ACM Conference on Computer & Communications Security at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia on October 31 from 2:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. EST.

Dr. John R. Rice of Arxan and Purdue University will be presenting the paper entitled, “Binding Software to Specific Native Hardware in a VM Environment: The PUF Challenge and Opportunity.”

“Virtualization is an important technology milestone, but what many software and hardware providers forget in the rush to ‘get virtual’ is the security risks it brings,” says Mike Dager, CEO of Arxan Technologies. “We are excited to participate in this conference and to be at the forefront of the research and dialogue that is happening at this leading academic center.”

This workshop, the first of its kind to deal exclusively with virtual machine security, will tackle important research topics in virtualization security. The implementation of virtualization has exploded in growth and it is being used to study and prevent malicious software infection, yet virtualization itself is now the subject of attack. There are many practical situations in which, by policy, software is supposed to run on a specific hardware instance. This is not only useful to combat piracy, but also in national security situations, such as a battlefield loss of critical technology, where it is paramount that an enemy be unable to rehost the system on a different set of hardware. Attendees will learn how to guard against these attacks by using Physically Unclonable Functions (PUFs), and gain an understanding of the challenges and opportunities for virtualization that PUFs bring.

With high-level access in the motion picture and television production and distribution enterprises that include North American studios and networks, First Serve puts powerful resources behind MediaSentinel and provides a significant step toward USVO profitability.

By marketing USVO’s MediaSentinel Workstations and licensing USVO technology, in effect First Serve will take the lead in the ongoing fight against piracy by offering the entertainment industry MediaSentinel’s digital watermarking products and services for studios, television programmers and other customers. “We are very excited about the tremendous opportunity this relationship brings for market acceptance of MediaSentinel,” said Edwin Molina, President and CEO of USVO. “We are extremely excited to have a person of the stature of First Serve’s Chairman Vijay Amritraj sign on to this important mission of developing the future of media property,” said Molina, adding that he was elated to “receive the endorsement and support of Vijay who is not just a legendary sportsman and entertainment entrepreneur but also a UN Messenger of Peace.”

In the USVO-First Serve relationship, the companies will jointly market the MediaSentinel Workstation to companies throughout Asia (including Bollywood in India), Europe, and the United States. In support of these efforts, the companies will collaborate with sales support, marketing and educational programs and materials that make clear the benefits of watermarking to potential customers. Through these efforts, the companies intend to attract new business and break ground on enforcement of copyright holders.

“We are indeed excited to work with USVO. MediaSentinel offers tremendous benefits in a cost and time efficient manner to the fast-growing media industry around the world to fight and deter piracy,” said Vijay Amritraj. First Serve will launch a global campaign to create awareness by showcasing the MediaSentinel at premium production and post-production facilities to demonstrate its proven ability.

The MediaSentinel Workstation embeds effortlessly, invisible forensic watermarks throughout the entire area of every frame in video content. The watermarks are virtually impossible to remove, and can survive a wide variety of conversions and attacks. MediaSentinel includes unique SmartMark technology that intelligently evaluates image characteristics to ensure that the watermarks remain invisible even in extreme situations.

Arxan Announces GuardIT

Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) November 4, 2008

Arxan Technologies, a leading provider of application hardening solutions designed to protect software applications from tampering, unauthorized access, piracy and malware insertion, today announced a major update to GuardIT, version 4.0.

An intelligent software protection solution, GuardIT defends, detects and reacts to attempted attacks in order to safeguard a company’s software assets. GuardIT fortifies software applications through patented Guard technology that quickly and efficiently secures commercial software applications and their associated copy protection systems (such as license management, DRM or conditional access). The solution enables organizations to rapidly and easily deploy a sophisticated and surgically precise “line of defense” for software applications, without impacting legitimate end users’ experience.

GuardIT is now a comprehensive and integrated protection platform that supports various languages, operating systems, compilers and chip-sets. GuardIT 4.0 features significant upgrades across the board including:

Greater Security and New Features:

– Stronger anti-tamper for .NET with dynamic integrity verification through Arxan’s Checksum Guard.

– Enhanced ability to detect hacking with additional anti-debug techniques to detect if an application is under the attack or control of a debugger.

– Increased flexibility in reacting and responding to attacks, including improved information gathering options. Arxan’s policy-based Guard reaction framework allows customers to select how Guard-enabled applications can react at run-time, ranging from tracking to termination.

– Enhanced support for 64-Bit Shared Objects for Linux.

Increased Automation and Usability:

– Further automation of the protection process such as the auto-population of configuration parameters and base protection functionality, which aids the customer in developing the protection.

– Improved usability throughout the protection process for faster deployment.

Continued support for 3rd party compilers and languages:

– Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SP1 support.

– Microsoft Visual Basic.NET compatibility.

To protect software applications and their intellectual property (IP) from attacks, GuardIT relies on an extensive network of Guards, which monitor the software application and each other, providing deeply-embedded binary-level protection for specified functions that are critical and/or vulnerable.

“Application hardening and shielding provide protection for an organization’s software-based assets (especially those placed on machines, sites and locations that the organization doesn’t control) from tampering, reverse engineering and attack. They also provide several types of application-level security without requiring developers to natively modify source code,” said Joseph Feiman and Neil MacDonald, VPs & Gartner Fellows [Source: "Hype Cycle for Data and Application Security" September 30, 2008].

GuardIT automatically inserts Guard protection directly into the compiled binary of the software application using a specified configuration, with no modifications required to the source code. An unprecedented level of sophistication is achieved in minutes that would otherwise have not been possible. GuardIT’s protection is also designed to neatly fit into existing software development cycles without impacting release schedules. GuardIT protection can also be integrated into nightly builds via the command line interface.

“Software applications are the new attack vector of choice for hackers,” said Mike Dager, CEO and Chairman of Arxan Technologies. “Attackers are working to subvert software applications to compromise functionality, steal intellectual property and gain inappropriate or unlawful access. Enterprises and software publishers need to defend against and closely monitor these threats to minimize risk and maximize their revenues. Our advanced application protection technologies accomplish these goals across a range of platforms and languages, and we are pleased to release the next version of GuardIT to the market.”
