    Guardsquare helps game developers win

    Mobile games are a big target for malicious actors.

    Risks include:

    • Cheating via exploitation of unprotected code, such as using fake GPS locations to score in-game treasure or modifying game parameters to allow players to jump higher or run faster without earning those skills
    • Cloning games to play without paying the makers and distributing or selling to others
    • Overriding in-app license checks to get upgrades and features for free
    Mobile app developers face major loss of revenue if hackers are able to successfully disrupt or hijack monetary exchanges.

    In addition to the risk of lost revenue, fairness is paramount in games, where players expect to compete on a level playing field. If hackers compromise a game’s fairness, users may lose trust in the game and/or the game’s maker.

    Unity support

    Key features of Guardsquare’s Unity support include:

    Code hardening:
    Obfuscates code to prevent hackers from reverse-engineering games and gaining insight into their internal logic. This feature includes protection for Unity metadata, which helps to prevent the leakage of critical app data, which could be used to reverse-engineer and modify a game.

    Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP):
    monitors the integrity of the application and the environment in which it runs in real-time, and automatically responds to different threats without impacting game performance.
