METAFORIC EXPANDS REVOLUTIONARY SOFTWARE IMMUNE SYSTEM PROTECTION TO APPLICATIONS RUNNING ON BLACKBERRY 10
Extends Security Protection Portfolio to New Mobile Operating System; Shields Code Integrity from Tampering, Targeted Malware and Hackers
SAN JOSE, CALIF. January 15, 2013— Metaforic, the innovative software security company, today announced that its world-class software immune system is now available for BlackBerry® 10 applications. Teaming with a mobile and network security leader, Metaforic can now empower a whole new class of developers around the globe to create secure, self-defending mobile solutions.
Infusing security directly into the application is particularly critical for sensitive applications such as mobile financial apps, or for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) protection. Using Metaforic technology, application developers can automatically inject a patented immune system into their BlackBerry OS applications to ensure the software can defend itself from targeted malware, repackaging, or other attacks— offering comprehensive protection for both themselves and their users.
Today’s security software market is becoming highly congested. However, most security companies are addressing the issue primarily from an IT administrative perspective. Metaforic takes a unique approach and focuses instead on making software stronger, more survivable from today’s attacks—providing security inside the software by automatically infusing a software immune system directly into a customer’s program when it’s built. The company works with software creators worldwide to ensure their applications can defend themselves and protect software from the inside out— even in exposed environments, where there may be no third-party security available and the users’ devices may already be rooted or jailbroken.
Metaforic’s software immunization protection offers a critical weapon to counter the growing onslaught of threats targeting mobile consumers, financial institutions and enterprises. Juniper Networks’ Mobile Threats Report states that malware has more than doubled on most smartphone platforms. The same report also notes that less than one in 20 smartphones and tablets have third-party security software installed, despite a steady increase in threats.
“Secure access and connectivity has never been more critical for mobile users,” says Dan Stickel, Metaforic CEO. “As an innovative security software company, Metaforic offers its partners and customers the most intelligent and only automated self-defending software available on the market today. Metaforic’s breakthrough mobile software immune system, now available on BlackBerry 10 and every other major OS, gives users one of the most secure, integrated mobile computing experiences and provides a highly effective and efficient methodology to harden applications to defend themselves against the latest and most malicious attacks.”
Metaforic is a leader is software security protection. Metaforic software immunization technology protects virtually any software from subversion, theft, piracy, tampering or other corruption. It is proven in millions of deployed instances, from consumer software to business devices. Only software protected by Metaforic earns the Mark of Security distinction. Offices are located in the United States, Europe and Japan. Further information is available at www.metaforic.com.
