Reverse engineering the source code of a game to bypass a paywall.
In order to prevent effective reverse engineering, you must use an obfuscation tool.
What would be the cost for my business if an attacker was to re-distribute my code, tamper with it, or bypass our licensing agreements?
Then, we must still consider the more advanced and dangerous threats of application abuse, cheating, and piracy. Free obfuscators offer no real protection against these. Again, enterprise-grade problems require enterprise-grade solutions.
Self-Defending — When your protected code faces a debugging or tampering attempt, Jscrambler’s integrity checks break the application or trigger a countermeasure specified by you.
Self-Healing — Runtime integrity checks that automatically revert tampered code back to original, clean code, without breaking the app or interfering with the user experience.
The combination of these unique technologies effectively mitigates any form of abuse, cheating, piracy, code theft, and reverse engineering attempt that operates through the client-side. This technology has earned the trust of Fortune 500 companies which, along with over 43,000 other companies and individuals, trust Jscrambler to protect their applications.
While we can expect malicious actors to go after these apps for their own gain, companies can (and should) take action in concealing their code logic and actively thwarting debugging and tampering attempts. And, unlike some argue, it's not a matter of security through obscurity — it's a matter of adding a new security layer to further protect critical business assets.
