Maintaining the integrity of your Web Application on the Client-Side…
Client-side attacks are among the most common threats facing users today, and yet many remain unaware of their prevailing menace and the fact that they are not being protected by the application owner. This calls for attention from the organizations that need to ensure their users are using their applications the right way.
“Traditionally, attackers went for hacking servers, but there has been a shift to the client-side because server-side applications have been targets for attackers since 2001, and these applications have matured,” says Amol Sarwate, Manager of the Vulnerability Lab at Qualys.
“Server-side attacks have waned because of better security surrounding them that makes it more difficult to exploit vulnerabilities,” he explains. “Load balancers and Web application firewalls are more common, making server defense more effective.”
But vulnerabilities in Web and Mobile applications are being hit by cross-site-scripting and malware injection attacks, among many more, upping the potential for considerable damage caused to both a business and its users – and even the big guns aren’t safe.
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 important assets safe.
Jscrambler’s recently-added webpage integrity module adds an extra security layer, enabling the detection and removal of code injections, MITB attacks, DOM-tampering and data exfiltration on the client-side and in real-time. This allows spotting what code was injected and where in the webpage, giving an unprecedented visibility on what’s happening on applications on the client-side. At the same time, it requires absolutely no installation of anything locally, while making it an incredibly transparent and user-friendly platform that supports all browsers and platforms, helping prevent a class of attack that is growing in frequency and complexity.
“Easily creating your app, swiftly managing its different versions, effectively protecting it and deploying it – those are our goals and we guarantee security professionals and developers will enjoy the experience,” Fortuna says. I’m sure once they have tried it, they will agree that Jscrambler has emphatically fulfilled these objectives while guaranteeing reverse-engineers and hackers will have find unfeasible to attack web applications protected with our technology.
