Feb 21st Forrester / V.i. Labs Webinar: Best Practices for Protecting .NET Applications

January 31, 2008


Just wanted to discuss the reason why we chose this Web seminar subject. We considered many topics that were relevant to the software protection space like anti-piracy, gaming security and others. However, I have personally noted a significant trend in the markets we focus on (high value software vendors and enterprise application developers) – more and more organizations are adopting the Microsoft .NET framework for application development and at the same time realizing the challenge of securing the code from decompiling.

For example, we had a recent prospect that had performed an open source audit of their application code and was very surprised by the level of source code information visible within their .NET binaries. My belief is that this issue has been well known at the developer level, but is only now gaining visibility within the corporate council and business unit levels because of the threat to their IP resident within the software applications.

We also approached Chenxi Wang from Forrester because of her expertise and interest in this area. In fact she did her doctoral thesis in software (see her bio here). So if you have a chance, please join us for the Webinar – I believe you will find it informative and not the typical product pitch.
