Our multi-faeceted approach is applied to the binary code to provide: obfuscation, encryption, root detection, shielding and tamper detection with the end goal of making life difficult for hackers & bots. Let’s add some definitions, what is obfuscation? Obfuscation means making something unclear or obscure – it’s like a frosted window, it obscures your vision but does not prevent functionality. With code obfuscation the goal is to conceal the underlying code that enables the application to function, while ensuring effective functionality of the application
