Original Press Release:
PreEmptive Solutions Ships One of the Industry's First Enterprise Obfuscation Solutions
Patented technology, component-based architecture and deep integration with the complete application lifecycle reduces risk and expense stemming from uncontrolled distribution of source code
CLEVELAND, March 7 / -- PreEmptive Solutions, inventor of one of the world's most popular obfuscation technologies, today announced the immediate availability of its Enterprise Obfuscation Solution for the Microsoft .NET environment and Java. The market leading product families, Dotfuscator Pro(TM) for .NET and DashO(TM) for Java, have been extended to manage the risks that stem from uncontrolled source code distribution.
"Given the ease of extracting source code from binaries in contemporary environments like Java and the .NET environment, the reality is that source code equals binary," said Gabriel Torok, President of PreEmptive Solutions. "Security best practices and compliance guidelines are consistent; access control is to be based on a 'least-privileged' or 'need to know' basis. Each organization needs to re-assess who 'needs to know' their source in this new light."
Risks that stem directly from this potential security gap include;
o Information loss and interruption of service made possible through exposure of application vulnerabilities and data management design
o Loss of intellectual property embedded inside source code resulting in reduced company value, increased competition and an increase in legal defense expenses
o Loss of revenue through application modifications that circumvent license enforcement and other metering functions that govern product and service usage and fee collection.
"Obfuscation is an effective component of a layered security strategy for companies that do not ordinarily distribute source code with binaries," said Rick Samona, product manager of the .NET Developer Product Marketing Group at Microsoft Corp. "As an industry partner Microsoft recognizes PreEmptive Solutions' continuing contribution to application security."
Specific features include;
o Developer control over obfuscation transformations at any level of granularity
o Simplified support for patch management and distribution
o Distributed tools enabling quality assurance, customer support and other distributed stakeholders to work easily and efficiently on obfuscated binaries
o Deep integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 providing additional efficiencies and control exclusively for Microsoft .NET Framework-based development efforts
