Use case

  1. High banking/military-grade Mobile App Security Solution

The V-OS Application Protection deploys multi-layered security mechanisms to help secure the mobile application. The V-OS and V-OS App Protection layers make it extremely difficult for an attacker to gain access to the critical data, even with full access to the mobile phone.

The solution can do this because the interaction of the secured virtual machine model and the dynamic protection mechanisms maintain control over the mobile environment and denies an attacker the ability to control the virtual machine execution flow for analysis.

V-OS secures sensitive processing and data, ensuring app integrity when deployed, and safeguarding user privacy even if the device is lost or compromised.

  1. Robust and also provide Software-As-A-Service for rapid deployment if needed

With V-OS Cloud, customers can deploy the same powerful V-OS App Protection and V-OS Smart Token solutions without additional V-Key server software on-premise. This reduces the total cost of ownership, shortens time to value, and simplifies customer support.
