Apple’s security protections help a lot. But only if they’re configured correctly. Each oversight is another way for attackers to break in. Once they succeed, your intellectual property, user data, brand reputation, and competitive advantage are exposed.
Even if you have Apple's security measures set properly, your app is still at risk. Attackers can disable iOS’s security mechanisms with exploit code called Jailbreaks. Within days of a new Jailbreak’s release, it will be adapted into an attack. Once they break down iOS’s protections, attackers can study your app’s code and data with reverse-engineering and runtime-tampering techniques. Most of these tools are backed by a dedicated community.
