Algorithm Protection

Protect your valuable software algorithms from reverse engineering

Protect software algorithms deployed at the edge

PACE specializes in protecting software intellectual property in desktop, mobile, and IoT software. This allows our customers’ businesses to grow based on the software algorithms they develop, without their value being undermined by reverse engineering.

The Reverse Engineering Risk

Any software deployed at the edge is vulnerable to reverse engineering. Attackers can gain direct access to software running on desktop, mobile, or IoT devices. This makes it easy to analyze the code to uncover your algorithmic secrets, using your expertise for their own advantage while reducing the value you’ve worked hard to develop.

Valuable algorithms are all around us

Edge Computing

Edge Processing

Many organizations have been built based on the value of their algorithms that process signals and other data. Securing these algorithms against reverse engineering is key to growing your business. PACE provides targeted protection to keep your algorithms safe.

Artificial Intelligence

AI models are distributed as software and data. As such, when deployed at the edge, they are vulnerable to the same reverse engineering risks as any other software. PACE delivers proven security to AI/ML developers, allowing them to maximize their value.

MATLAB® and Simulink®

With innovative algorithms and models being developed in MATLAB and Simulink, the protection and management of the resulting executable is critical. PACE supports the commercialization of MATLAB algorithms and Simulink models.

PACE's products for protecting algorithms

Valuable algorithms require targeted protection that even skilled reverse engineers will struggle to break down, and defenses to ensure an algorithm cannot be lifted out of your code. PACE’s software security suite goes beyond obfuscation to provide the protection you need.
  • Protect your competitive advantage
  • Safely monetize your expertise
  • Stop algorithms from being reverse engineered
  • Empower developers with easy-to-use tools

Strong Security

Leave software protection to us - that's what we do. Your focus can be on developing great products.

Automated Optimization

Protection that understands your software, and self-optimizes so you can focus on features not tuning protection.

Customizable Protection

We put the control in your hands. Design your security model to work for your business.

Consistent Behavior

Your software will behave the same before and after protection, and PACE’s automated processes remove any space for human error.

Achieve Certification

PACE empowers you to pass certification against the highest software security standards.

Invisible to End Users

Block attackers without changing the experience you offer your customers.

CI/CD Integration

Easy integration into any common build system so your software is protected wherever its built.

Pre-integrated with iLok Licensing

If using iLok licensing, upgrading your protection to Fusion is an easy step.

Customer Support

Our customers receive full documentation, quality support, and access to our engineering team.

Proven Track Record

Our protection stands strong for years, not hours or days.
