Application Shielding featuring RASP Security

Hackers and their targeted malware have become an increasing threat to the mobile revolution. With the explosive growth of the mobile channel and user demand for anytime/anywhere access to mobile services, app providers are challenged to keep up with security, which increases exposure to malicious attacks.

VASCO’s app shielding and hardening featuring Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) proactively manages the real threat of sophisticated malware, by effectively detecting and preventing fraudulent app activities before they can even start.

Our RASP Solution

Natively integrating VASCO's RASP technology ensures complete integrity of your mobile apps and protects sensitive data and high value transactions from fraudsters.

Business Benefits: 

  • Defeats targeted attacks. RASP is a proactive security solution against zero-day and other targeted attacks, allowing mobile business apps to run securely, even on infected devices. If a hacker attacks, RASP will either block the foreign code from working or shutdown the application if a threat to data integrity exists.

  • Overlay detection. Overlay malware makes use of a hacker-developed copy of a legitimate mobile app login screen that tricks users into entering their personal information, which is then used for fraud by the hacker. VASCO’s RASP detects overlay attacks and notifies the business’s security administrator when a user becomes a victim of an attack, flagging their app as compromised. RASP also has the ability to terminate the infected app, to protect sensitive user data, and redirect the user to a website with further details to ensure the best possible user experience.

  • Quick to deploy. VASCO RASP Security provides an automated implementation process. Once integrated, RASP sifts through the business logic, event and data flows of the application, before binding itself to existing code. This allows organizations to quickly release RASP-protected apps, without affecting the development timeline.

  • Protects multiple business apps. Because RASP is not bound to one application with one business logic, it allows for effective scaling across multiple apps of the organization while maintaining an optimal user experience (UX).

  • Meets strict compliance requirements. Regulations across different regions often require advanced levels of security. RASP provides a powerful tool for businesses to address compliance goals that include preventing cybercrime and personal data theft.

  • Improves fraud detection. RASP data can be utilized by risk management platforms for the most accurate detection and prevention of attacks by performing extensive analysis that scores the risk of the mobile device.

Our runtime application self-protection technology detects malware, man-in-the-app (code-injection) and jailbreaking/rooting before the application even loads on the device, securing the app from both known and unknown attack vectors.

How does RASP secure applications?

RASP wraps around the application code to create a shield against foreign code injection. Even if a device becomes infected with malware, our RASP technology will detect and block that code from running. Malicious system components, such as Screen-reader or Keyboards on Android, are detected and blocked from accessing user's input, including login credentials.

Securing mobile apps across all industries

Mobile app use is increasing across every industry from banking to gaming, thus application security has never been more important. Hackers are targeting these unprotected applications with a focus on banking and gaming to steal and profit from valuable user data.
