As the leading mobile security laboratory, Riscure is honored to be the lab of choice for Guardsquare to perform the EMVCo Software-Based Mobile Payment (SBMP) Security Evaluation of Dexguard. We congratulate the Guardsquare team on achieving the EMVCo SBMP certification and meeting the EMVCo SBMP security requirements with their software protection tool.
Over the past decade, Riscure has built a rapport among software protection tool providers by offering expert technical testing services of static and dynamic code protection tools. The in-depth feedback provided by Riscure to the industry continues to enable many of the software protection tool providers to further harden the security robustness of their solutions. This directly benefits all app developers who use these tools to secure mobile solutions in the payment- and other industries.
During the collaboration with Guardsquare, Riscure security experts evaluated the capabilities of Dexguard, including the Obfuscation, Root Detection, Anti-Instrumentation & Tamper Detection, and Anti-Emulation techniques. The achievement of the EMVCo SBMP certification illustrates that during the evaluation process, Dexguard proved to be robust against expert-level attacks.
“The EMVCo SBMP certification of Dexguard is the industry validation that Dexguard is fit for purpose and enables app developers to protect their apps against relevant security threats and attackers when developing and securing mobile payment, tap-to-phone, SPoC, CPoC, or any sort of mobile application.” – Tim Hartog, Director Mobile Payment at Riscure.
