Black Wolf, WI (PressExposure) June 15, 2007 -- Application vulnerabilities, Intellectual Property theft and revenue loss are among the most serious risks facing companies today. According to Business Software Alliance statistics, four out of every ten software programs is pirated in software business, world wide.
Unauthorized access to source code can offer a quick back entrance into your systems, business processes and revenue streams. Global piracy rate has increased 40% over the past years and nearly $11 billion is lost. This is definitely a clear threat for software producers and thus to global economy. With more than half of million developers with some level of access to .NET reengineering tools providing near instant access to source from any .NET binary, organizations across industries are entrusting on obfuscation to managing these risks. Over the years, several software protection techniques have been developed, code obfuscation is one of them and it is very promising. Code obfuscation is a form of software protection against unauthorized reverse-engineering.
The chief functions of any software protection technique can be determined as detection of pirate attempts to decipher or tamper software, protection against such attempts and alteration of software to ensure that it functionality degrades in an undetectable manner if the protection fails. Skater .NET obfuscator performs the deciphering protection by various means that mainly concentrate on making the assembly members' names meaningless, encrypting string values, and including tricking code commands that render disassembled code not recompilable.
RustemSoft proposes Skater .NET obfuscator, an obfuscation tool for .NET code protection. It implements all known software protection techniques and obfuscation algorithms.
If you would like periodically obfuscate your .NET products the Skater .NET Obfuscator is for you. RustemSoft is using the Skater for internal needs securing all RustemSoft .NET executables and assemblies. Its command-line version running in batch mode is much useful for your scheduled products updates. You have to assign settings for an assembly in GUI version first. Then the batch obfuscate task will use the settings.
Skater .NET obfuscator is a .NET code intellectual property protection tool that implements all known software protection techniques to completely protect your .NET apps. RustemSoft .NET Obfuscator is compatible with any .NET framework and offers effective methods of protection against unauthorized reverse-engineering. Obviously you need the Skater .NET Obfuscator for the following reasons:
1. You have a clear understanding of obfuscation benefits and appropriate use cases. 2. You generally understand that obfuscation prevents source code extraction. 3. You have practical understanding of how and when obfuscation should be used. 4. Also your organization has a consistent approach to assessing the risk of source code extraction.
