"With global losses of $34 billion dollars due to software piracy, companies need to include anti-piracy security measures as an integral step in their software development life cycle to protect their valuable intellectual property, competitive advantage and revenue. Arxan allows companies to turn the tables on software pirates with our patented technology that dynamically defends, detects and reacts to attempted attacks," said Mike Dager, Arxan's Chief Executive Officer.
