Jscrambler In The News

First of all, Happy New Year 2018! Every new year, we look back and cherish the most important happenings in previous months.

Jscrambler was featured in several media outlets in the past few months, thanks to the significant contribution of Pedro Fortuna, Co-Founder and CTO of Jscrambler, and we thought it was a good idea to spread the news to our lovely community. Check the latest top stories referring Jscrambler:

Banking Technology

Banking Technology is the definitive source of news and analysis of the global fintech sector, being at the forefront of the print and online publishing for the international community of bankers, financial services professionals, vendors, consultants, analysts and other industry participants.

On "Using the web to access online banking? Who is protecting the browser side?", Pedro Fortuna suggests what organizations in the Banking & Finance sector should do next in order to protect their users, reputation and business, apart from server-side measures.

"To date, there hasn’t been a way to understand if online users are being compromised or to be sure precisely what they are seeing whilst visiting and interacting with a web page. We know that endpoint security and anti-viruses fail and online users can be infected even with all the precautions that they may take. Server-side security is now very mature and excellent progress has been made in that particular field."

HuffPost UK, formerly The Huffington Post UK, is the destination for U.K. news, blogs and original content offering coverage of British politics, entertainment, style, world news, technology and comedy.

Pedro Fortuna and Rui Ribeiro, Founders of Jscrambler, were interviewed by Steve Mariotti from HuffPost and shared their vision about the state of application security and the company they built.

"Web technologies, and JavaScript in particular, were developed 20 years ago, and were meant to do simple operations. But today’s JavaScript apps are much more complex. It’s not enough to find security vulnerabilities and fixing them; you must also make sure that your application is as resilient as it can be against user-experience tampering, malware injection, data leakage, MiTB, intellectual property and code theft."

In the article "Staying Safe While Accessing Online Banking", Pedro Fortuna addresses the attack vectors that can be responsible for an attack to an online banking user and the implications this could have for the bank in terms of reputation and revenue.

"How do you know if you are being compromised when accessing your bank online? Are you confident that the content you are seeing and interacting with is real and secure? Up until now, it has been difficult to tell. Advances in security techniques have proved to be successful in protecting the server side from cyber thieves but now they are increasingly attacking end users on the client side of applications."
