Dangers of Unprotected Avalonia Apps

Leaving your Avalonia app unobfuscated exposes it to numerous threats, compromising its integrity and your hard work.

Discover Vulnerabilities

Unprotected apps are easy targets for hackers who can quickly discover and exploit vulnerabilities, causing serious damage.

Lose Brand Reputation

Security breaches can lead to loss of user trust, tarnishing your brand’s reputation and affecting your bottom line.

Tampering Risks

Without obfuscation, attackers can tamper with your project’s code, modify its behavior, or inject malicious payloads.

IP Theft & Cloning

Unencrypted code makes it easy for competitors to steal your intellectual property and create clones of your project.

Business impact

of code security automation with Shield

With Shield, the security and integrity of your code can be automated. Security settings and techniques are inherited between versions of your application ensuring that your software is always protected.

Easy implementation, with no code required.


Reduced risk

Improving the security of your software and eliminating vulnerabilities reduces the risk of suffering an attack, leaking sensitive information of your users or your company’s intellectual property. This greatly reduces the risk of your company suffering a reputational problem.

Increased productivity

By automating security and centralizing it in the ByteHide platform you allow your developers to focus on development and not on security. Accomplishing tasks faster and maintaining the scalability of your team.

Reduced cost

Reduces infrastructure costs associated with code protection, human costs for configuration and management, and costs associated with cybersecurity breaches that can save up to 95%.

Get more customers by ensuring their safety

Guarantees data security and privacy to your end users, which increases trust in your company and gets more customers to use your products.

Protect your company from competitors

Keep your competitors away. Don’t allow them to decompile your applications, prevent them from copying your proprietary or patented algorithms and ensure your company’s exclusivity in the market.

Compliance and regulations

Add robust data protection controls to support compliance with regulations such as PSD2, GDPR, CCPA, PCI and others. Meet compliance requirements with ByteHide Shield.

GDPR compliance

Comply with Article 25: Data protection by design and by default and Article 32: Security of processing by using Shield in your applications.

PCI developer guidelines

Cover several requirements listed in the PCI regulations for accepting payments in mobile applications with ByteHide Shield.

Shielding to support PSD2

ByteHide Shield covers the regulations for your company by protecting against known and unknown attacks against mobile applications for mobile banking applications, as required by DSP2.

Using ByteHide Shield to obfuscate applications in their compilation

Frequently asked questions about obfuscation and applications protection

What is obfuscation?

The term obfuscation is commonly used in cybersecurity to refer to making something difficult to read or understand. In the programming world, when the source code of an application is obfuscated it means that it is “modified” using renaming techniques and cryptographic algorithms to encrypt and harden. This obfuscation process is done to prevent the application from being reverse engineered and decompiled to avoid a wide variety of attacks.

Why should I obfuscate my applications?

Just as code once programmed becomes an application, that application can be reversed to get the source code of it. If the source code of this application is accessed without protection, shielding or obfuscation, its operation can be analyzed. This opens up many possibilities for attacks, both cracking and reverse engineering. If an attacker accesses the source code of your application without obfuscation, he can actually completely modify its operation. In addition, it can steal intellectual property (IP) and cause a very bad image for a business or company, not to mention that there may be sensitive data (such as customer data, passwords or unencrypted database connections) that the attacker or competitor can easily access.

How can I obfuscate my applications?

There are actually many ways to obfuscate an application, from encrypting sensitive parts of the code, to replacing classes or variable names, to anti debugging or anti tampering techniques. All this is only useful if the person in charge of performing the obfuscation has advanced knowledge in logarithmic mathematics, encryption and cryptography. If not, anyone with a minimum knowledge in reverse engineering could reverse all the protections and access the source code. In that case the favorite and most powerful option is to use an obfuscator.

What is an obfuscator?

An obfuscator is a tool that analyzes your application, detects sensitive parts and through different obfuscation techniques increases the security of an application. The obfuscator converts the source code into code that is practically impossible to read by a human, but at the same time maintains its functionality at 100%. The recommendation we always make is the ByteHide Shield obfuscator because it offers military-grade encryption with super-simple preconfigurations. Literally anyone could protect their application with ByteHide Shield in 3 clicks!
