Information Systems Co., Ltd. (MSYS), and Intertrust
Technologies Corporation today announced a reseller partnership that
allows MSYS to resell whiteCryption Application Shielding products in
Japan. MSYS is one of Japan's leading IT solutions providers with
extensive cross vertical industry expertise. Intertrust is the majority
owner of whiteCryption Corporation, the world's leading provider of
Tamper Resistance and Application Shielding technologies, which are
essential to securing mobile and IoT apps from hackers.
Hackers tend to attack the weakest point in a secure system, which for
an app are the program instructions that are unencrypted on a device
such as a smartphone or a car. Application Shielding technologies
protect software from reverse engineering and other forms of malicious
attacks by securely manipulating the instructions to make them very hard
to break open. whiteCryption has mastered two patented techniques – code
obfuscation and whitebox cryptography.
"In recent years, various business fields using innovative technologies
such as IoT, AI, Big Data, Fintech, Social Media are appearing, and the
development of application software realizes the smartification of
things and services by using self-developed algorithms is rapidly
increasing," said Akihiko Matsuoka, Executive Officer of MSYS.
"Application Shielding is becoming a required technology for software
that runs on mobile and IoT devices and we chose to add whiteCryption to
our product offerings because of its superior implementation and
