DexProtector certified by EMVCo to secure mobile payments apps

Tuesday 26 January 2021 13:05 CET | News

US-based app protection provider Licel has announced that their product, DexProtector, has become the first software protection tool to be certified by EMVCo.


DexProtector offers instant protection for iOS and Android apps from static and dynamic attacks. What sets it apart from other app protection products is its ability to sit between the operating system and the application itself. This allows it to control everything that happens both inside the app and around it. Its environment checks can spot rooted devices, debuggers, emulators, hooking attempts, and signs of tampering. 

As part of the evaluation process, DexProtector was subjected to an exhaustive test by testing, inspection, and certification operative Applus+. Among other things, they studied DexProtector's source code before submitting their evaluation report to EMVCo.

A global technical body, EMVCo helps card-based payment products from across the globe to work together seamlessly and securely. It is collectively owned by American Express, Discover, JCB, Mastercard, UnionPay, and Visa. In a world where software-based mobile payments (SBMP) are quickly becoming the norm, EMVCo plays an influential role in establishing Security Evaluation Processes for businesses in this area to follow.
