Any data that would be considered sensitive was traditionally stored on the server. This kept your code safe and it also allowed the server to do the heavy lifting, performance-wise. Storing your code on the server certainly does offer the best protection, but it is not a one-size-fits-all solution. In some cases, it has some disadvantages: when someone is developing an application that should work offline or high-performance apps like games, where excessive latency can ruin the user experience, for example.
In light of this looming threat, tech start-up Jscrambler presents an innovative solution, providing an integrated platform to protect client-side applications and keep your corporate assets safe.
“If companies focus only on protecting the server, as they have been doing until now, they will leave their front door open to attacks such as user-experience tampering, malware injection, data leakage, Man-in-the-Browser (MITB) attacks, Intellectual Property and code theft,” says Jscrambler Co-Founder and Owner, Pedro Fortuna.
“In its 5.0 version, Jscrambler is a full client-side protection and monitoring solution that ensures that users can run apps safely, even in hostile environments.”
