Application shielding for financial services

Protect encryption keys and shield financial applications from tampering and reverse engineering so they run securely in zero-trust environments.

Application shielding for financial services

How secure are financial mobile apps in 2021?

New research audits more than 150 payment, banking, trading, and lending apps to uncover the top security vulnerabilities.

Financial apps in a zero-trust world

Financial services are the number one target for cyberattacks. Attackers reverse engineer applications to steal secret keys, credentials, and sensitive information. Beyond theft of funds, institutions face brand damage, regulatory fines, and loss of customer trust.

Make sure your financial apps run securely, even in untrusted environments. Use whiteCryption application shielding technologies, so your app brings security with it.

Financial apps in a zero-trust world

Reduce risk of data leakage and fraud

whiteCryption secures financial services applications, secret keys, and sensitive data stored inside those applications.

Secure transactions and cardholder data

The convenience of digital applications cannot come at the price of transaction, PIN, and card data security. PCI Data Security Standards govern any system using and managing cardholder and transaction data and are enforced across all major card brands. whiteCryption tools help deliver compliant solutions while reducing your risk of fraud and loss.

Protect customer information

Your customers need to trust that their information will remain secure as they access your services from any device. Regulations such as GDPR demand it. Every app and operating system has vulnerabilities—whiteCryption application protections make sure that cybercriminals can't exploit them to extract customer data and secrets.

Mobile payments

Third party mobile wallets rely on software based protection to secure keys, credentials, PIN codes, transaction data and tokenized cards. Protecting apps from reverse engineering, and keeping keys safe, from extraction are essential to reduce financial loss and brand damage.

Digital banking thumbnail

Digital banking

As mobile and online banking apps mature, with capabilities like setting up accounts, biometrics, and check scanning, the need for high grade application shielding and key protection rises. Developers cannot rely on OS protection; they have to assume mobile phones and PCs cannot be trusted and embed appropriate protection into their applications.
