DNP to Launch Service Combining Security Check Service AuditMyApps and Anti-Cracking Software for Smartphone Applications

Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. (DNP) is pleased to announce the April 1, 2016 launch of a new cloud service that combines the smartphone application (app) security check service AuditMyApps1 created by Montpelier, France-based Pradeo Security Systems (Pradeo) and DNP's own anti-cracking software2 that prevents illicit app tampering.

High-function apps are on the rise in line with performance improvements in smartphones and tablet terminals, and the enhancing of security measures is becoming an important task. In this latest development, DNP has been able to provide a dual benefit to developers and consumers, by facilitating the development and provision of more secure apps. This has been achieved through the combination of Pradeo's AuditMyApps that tests app security at the development level, and DNP's anti-cracking software that prevents tampering with the developed apps.

  • App developers, including companies, use AuditMyApps to test security at the development stage following app security design. By uploading the app executable file to the cloud-based AuditMyApps during development, it is possible to obtain the security check result report, and conduct repeated checks.
  • The anti-cracking software protects applications in a variety of industries, such as net-banking and online games, from cracking. The software works by taking a developed application that has passed the AuditMyApps security check, and processes it with a cloud-based anti-cracking software to prevent tampering.
  • The newly developed service allows users to combine AuditMyApps with the anti-cracking software in a cloud environment in a seamless format. As a result, it will become possible to develop more secure applications in an efficient manner.
