PreEmptive Protection for Java and Android

Protect and Secure your Java and Android Code

DashO is a Java and Android Obfuscator plus much more. It provides enterprise-grade app hardening and shielding, greatly reducing the risk of intellectual property theft, data theft, piracy, and tampering. Our layered obfuscation, encryption, watermarking, auto-expiry, anti-debug, anti-tampering, anti-emulator, anti-hooking, anti-rooted device solution provides protection for applications all around the world.

How easy is it to decompile Java based applications?

Java and Android applications and libraries are compiled to bytecode which maintains high-level information about your code including its structure and class, field, method, property and parameter names. With a free decompiler, it is very easy to recreate the source code. Obfuscation and related hardening and shielding techniques can make it much more difficult for a hacker or competitor to reverse-engineer your application.

Why use a Java Obfuscator or an Android Obfuscator on your applications?

Applications are on our phones, inside our workplace, and powering the businesses and services we depend upon – it comes as no surprise to anyone that these apps have also become a favored target for cybercriminals, corporate competitors, and hostile nation states wanting crack licenses, steal valuable IP, trade secrets and confidential data, and attack critical infrastructure. By making your application much more difficult to reverse-engineer, you can help protect against intellectual property (trade secret) theft, bypassing licensing or other access checks, and searching for vulnerabilities and gaining access to data.

Risks associated with non obfuscated Java and Android Apps

How does Java application hardening and obfuscation work?

Various different complementary techniques are used to create a layered defense to make reverse engineering, tampering, debugging much more difficult. Some examples include:

  • Rename Obfuscation
  • String Encryption
  • Control Flow Obfuscation
  • Unused Code and Metadata Removal
  • Binary Linking/Merging
  • Dummy Code Insertion
  • Instruction Pattern Transformation
  • Opaque Predicate Insertion
  • Anti-Tamper
  • Anti-Debug
  • Anti-Rooted Device
  • Anti-Emulator
  • Anti-Hooking
  • Watermarking
  • Security Alerts
  • Remove Unneeded Debugging and Logging Method Calls
  • Custom Response to Tamper, Debugging and Execution on a Rooted Device
