Data Protection in Contact Tracing Apps

Contact tracing apps have become a key weapon in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. However, web and mobile contact tracing apps must employ resilient security layers to protect sensitive data and ensure users' privacy and security.

Minimizing the exposure of sensitive data with Memory Protection

JavaScript Threat Monitoring

Whenever sensitive data passes through the client-side of applications, it is exposed to exfiltration attacks. This is especially important in contact tracing apps.

This new Memory Protection feature minimizes the time frame during which the data is in plain sight to close off the window of opportunity for attacks.

This technology ciphers the data with state-of-the-art cryptographic algorithms and only allows it to be deciphered when the app needs to access it. This maximizes the secrecy of sensitive data.

Reducing exposure to dangerous devices with Root/Jailbreak Detection

Root & Jailbreak Detection
This technology improves the security of contact tracing apps with a brand-new type of environment locks: Root and Jailbreak detection.
When users root (Android) or jailbreak (iOS) their devices, they become more susceptible to attacks like data exfiltration.
With this new feature, contact tracing apps will detect these dangerous devices and trigger flexible countermeasures like derailing execution or blocking specific app features.

Preventing exfiltration of Sensitive Data

This cutting-edge technology allows the application to prevent the exfiltration of sensitive data in contact tracing apps.
This is achieved by intercepting and preventing the use of network APIs if an attack is detected - serving as a final layer of client-side security.
