BY THREAT [NETWORK SNIFFING]

Neutralize network sniffing attacks

Build38 provides robust protection against network sniffing attacks. The strength of our solution depends on the secure communication services within our SDK, which are augmented by our cloud-based active app hardening and AI-driven threat intelligence capabilities.

How hackers do it

Hackers use network sniffing to intercept and analyze data traffic between a mobile app and its server. By deploying tools or techniques that monitor network communications, they can capture sensitive information, such as login credentials, personal data, or financial transactions, as it travels over the network.

Network sniffing allows hackers to eavesdrop on these exchanges without the app or user knowing, opening the door to data theft, identity theft, or other malicious activities.

How Build38 protects your mobile app

Build38 provides robust protection against network sniffing attacks. Our security strategy is based on the secure communication services embedded within our SDK, which is further strengthened by our cloud-delivered active app hardening and AI-driven threat intelligence capabilities.

Superior mobile app self-protection

The secure communication services within our SDK act as the central defense mechanism against various network layer attacks, including network sniffing attacks. Their primary goal is to safeguard your application's sensitive data during transmission:

  • Certificate pinning is utilized to prevent server impersonation.
  • Our SDK ensures secure configurations for TLS channel establishment, thereby thwarting downgrade attacks to insecure versions.

Active hardening

Our always-on active hardening capabilities remotely strengthen app security by employing cryptographic-key-based instance individualization, injecting certificates into each app instance, and verifying device binding information. In addition, our active hardening server continuously harvests app security data from individual devices to root out suspected network sniffing attacks, feeding it into a machine learning engine to extrapolate valuable threat intelligence.

Cloud-based threat intelligence 

Our platform, in turn, channels the threat intelligence generated by the active hardening to three exclusive cloud-based threat-intelligence modules. These modules empower your business teams and back-end software to respond swiftly to perceived mobile app threats as they occur.
Threat Intelligence Portal

Our powerful web console promptly notifies your team when security incidents occur, allowing them to take manual actions such as permanently wiping an app, locking it, or unlocking it as necessary.

Attestation & Response

Our user-friendly online interface empowers your team to establish automated rules that ensure consistent responses to future incidents, based on predefined policies.

Threat Intelligence & Response APIs

Through our APIs, you can inform your back-end systems about security incidents and directly program specific responses into any back-end application.
