SUNNYVALE, Calif., Feb. 13, 2017 — Intertrust Technologies Corporation, the world’s leading provider of secure and trusted distributed computing products and services, today announced the company’s whiteCryption product line will support Swift programming language as part of its suite of enhanced application security solutions.
“As the open-source Swift community becomes more popular among developers, we received requests from macOS and iOS developers for protecting Swift apps with our world-class app security solution,” said Bill Horne, vice president and general manager of Intertrust Secure Systems. “As a result, we now offer Swift support for our package of code protection solutions.”
The Swift programming language was created for iOS, macOS and tvOS apps and was built on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraint of C compatibility. According to recent GitHub data, Swift has grown 262 percent in 2016 and hit the top 10 list as one of the most popular programming languages. Swift’s rise stems from its unique features that include an adopted safe programming environment, tools that make programming easier, and its flexibility.
whiteCryption products include software application security and white-box cryptography. Using whiteCryption, software developers and distributors can ensure that their applications function as intended, and that the data used by those applications is accessible only to those for whom it is intended.
“Gartner has estimated that 26 billion devices will be online by 2020,” Horne said. “With connected devices come DDoS attacks, hacks, breaches and stolen data. Many of these apps and devices will be used in the healthcare, automotive and mission-critical infrastructure markets. This is not just about protecting data anymore; it’s about protecting lives. Our solutions offer enhanced protection, security and trust services to protect against a broad spectrum of malicious activities.”
whiteCryption products include Code Protection, which consists of a comprehensive toolset for hardening modern software applications, and Secure Key Box, which is a cryptographic library that implements standard cryptographic algorithms in a way that completely hides the keys.
Swift support will be commercially available in the spring 2017. whiteCryption will be showcasing its application security software solutions Feb. 13-16, 2017, at the RSA Conference USA 2017, booth #N4334, Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA.
