If you write Windows apps (standard 32-bit or .NET) and want to protect them against reverse engineering and tampering check out V.i. Labs Code Armor. I haven’t used it so I can’t comment on how well it works…it just seems like a neat product.
While most organizations have many, many security issues at a much higher level they need to focus on first, I could see such a product as a good last layer of defense – especially if protecting intellectual property is a priority.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
