A couple of months ago, we announced our Series A investment round and today, we’re excited to share some great news indeed. Jscrambler has been recognized for the second year in a row for its application shielding technology, in the June 2018 Market Guide for Application Shielding, a report by Gartner, a global research and advisory firm.

As you may already know, Jscrambler offers a complete security solution to tamper-proof JavaScript applications. With offices in Portugal and the USA, Jscrambler serves now over 43,000 companies and individuals across the Banking, eCommerce, Technology Gaming, and Advertising sectors.

“We are very pleased to be recognized once again as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s Market Guide for Application Shielding. We believe it shows Jscrambler’s unique contribution to the Application Security landscape and that client-side security is a topic that more and more experts and companies know it’s crucial to address,” said Rui Ribeiro, co-founder and CEO of Jscrambler.

“I believe it is now clear that it is not enough to find security vulnerabilities and fix them. Companies need to go beyond to ensure that their web applications are truly resilient and that their reputation and user experience is protected."

Application Shielding refers to a set of technologies that typically modify an application’s code to make it more resistant to reverse-engineering, tampering, invasive monitoring, and intrusion. Enterprises harden their applications to protect their software assets and the data touched by the application.

Protecting applications that run within untrusted environments is crucial as mobile, IoT and modern web applications migrate software logic to the client side. Security and risk management leaders must harden their application front ends to avoid turning them into an attack vector.
