In 2012 Voice Pro was launched by an independent app developer to allow people to record and adjust audio clips – edit, cut, eliminate noise, add effects and tracks…and so on…and it got great reviews:
- “Work with your music wherever you go” – reviewsite.com
- “The most advanced recording app you can find on Android” – androidheadlines.com
- “I can literally do anything like a professional music editor” – mobiappreview.com
The developer soon noticed that the revenue being earned didn’t seem to match the praise of the reviews and the quoted usage numbers. An investigation revealed that an enterprising hacker had reverse engineered the app and rebuilt it in the illegal marketplace where users could download it for free.
Today the Voice Pro app, data and over 250,000 users are protected by the full suite of Quixxi Security modules, and the developer manages all licensing, user analysis, system diagnostics and real-time code patching through Control, all seamlessly managed through the single dashboard on the Quixxi Portal.
“Voice PRO is a Top 50 paid app on the Google Play Store. We noticed more active users than sales and realised that pirated copies of our app were being distributed on file sharing networks. Quixxi Security was able to protect our app from hackers and helped us recover over USD $250K in lost revenue.”
