Arxan Introduces Mobile Application Security for Tizen(R) 
Mobile App Integrity Protection(TM) Platform Offers Tizen Developers
Best-in-Class Application Security 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/22/13 --  Arxan
Technologies, the industry-leading provider of software security
solutions that protect the App Economy, today announced their mobile
app integrity protection platform now supports the Tizen OS,
protecting Tizen apps from today's most sophisticated and advanced
cyber threats.  
As enterprise, government, digital media and other industries
increasingly leverage this open-source OS with new mobile
applications, security vulnerabilities in both HTML5 and native Tizen
application code continue to be a concern. Arxan's EnsureIT(R) for
Tizen offers unparalleled protection against malware, software
piracy, fraud, and IP theft threats with automated and embedded
software that is easy to deploy and durable. 
As a sponsor of the Tizen Developer Conference May 22-24 in San
Francisco, Arxan will offer attendees an inside look at
vulnerabilities and risks specific to the Tizen OS including: hacker
toolkits designed to attack applications through reverse-engineering,
disassembly, or debugging mobile applications.  
"The open-source nature of Tizen applications makes them susceptible
to malware attacks," said Kevin Morgan, CTO and vice president
engineering, Arxan. "Similar to the evolution we've seen on Android
and iOS, as the Tizen platform development continues adoption,
companies need to be confident that developers have built in layered
integrity protection that is customizable, low-impact and embedded
directly into applications in order to achieve real security and
protect valuable assets." 
One significant advantage of the Tizen OS is the ability to port code
built between the Tizen OS and other platforms. Companies using
Arxan's EnsureIT family of products can leverage Tizen protection
designs for iOS, Android, Linux, and the PowerPC platforms and
benefit from an unrivaled breadth of platform coverage.  
Tizen devices continue on the path toward commercialization and
industry leaders such as Huawei, NTT DOCOMO, Orange, Samsung and
Intel are fully supporting the shift toward openness and industry
standardization to encourage the development of a rob
ust ecosystem.  
Samsung announced its intention to add to the Tizen ecosystem by
launching Tizen devices in 2013 with Fujitsu and Huawei expected to
introduce phones of their own later in the year. Tizen 2.0 Magnolia
SDK and source code is now available to developers and the Tizen
Store will launch later this year with thousands of apps. However,
the limited security components of the Tizen App Market remain an
issue.  
Arxan will be showcasing EnsureIT for Tizen at the Tizen Developer
Conference, giving attendees an opportunity to see the core features
available to them. These include automated defend, detect and react
capabilities and the use of various security techniques such as
obfuscation, checksum, repair and anti-debug embedded directly into
the software code of each application to ensure control, trust and
tamper resistance.
