PreEmptive Solutions Launches "Real Time" Application Tamper Defense

Dotfuscator Professional 4.3 Released

PreEmptive Solutions announced the availability of Dotfuscator Professional 4.3. This release includes enhanced application tamper defense and heuristics that automatically extend protection to applications that incorporate advanced Microsoft .NET Framework components and programming techniques.

“Developers who make full use of the powerful capabilities of the .NET Framework recognize the importance of protecting their applications and their intellectual property,” said Joe Marini, director of the Development Tools Ecosystem team at Microsoft. “We appreciate the commitment of partners like PreEmptive Solutions to providing customers with solutions that are integrated with the .NET Framework and Visual Studio Team System. This is a good example of how industry partners contribute to the Microsoft ecosystem.”

“We have included new “.NET-3.5-aware” rules and created an extensible framework to manage and extend these rules to continuously keep pace with the rapidly expanding palette of technologies and coding techniques available to today’s development organizations,” said Bill Leach, CTO at PreEmptive Solutions. “This release increases application protection, minimizes side-effects and simplifies adoption while continuing to ensure 100 percent .NET framework support.”

Specific rules inside Dotfuscator 4.3 encompass both Microsoft technologies and development techniques.

Auto-detection and configuration for Microsoft technologies include:

  • Language Integrated Query (LINQ)
  • Silverlight
  • Visual J#
  • Windows CardSpace
  • Windows Communication Foundation
  • Windows Presentation Foundation
  • Windows Workflow
  • Web Services

Auto-detection and configuration for specific development techniques include: 

  • Custom Serialization
  • Data-bound Windows Forms controls
  • Enumerated type values used as strings
  • Late calls in Visual Basic applications

Also included in this release of Dotfuscator is the availability of “automatic real-time application tamper defense.” Now, for the first time, Dotfuscator can inject logic to detect and defend against application tampering that includes real-time defense logic requiring no access to source or recompilation. “The automatic real-time defense rounds out the existing tamper defense functionality that includes real-time custom defenses, automatic alerts and incident management services,” said Gabriel Torok, CEO of PreEmptive Solutions. “Detective controls can be seamlessly paired with obfuscation and other preventative controls with no added complexity or development stages.”

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
