Presswire

 [PRESSWIRE] LEUVEN, Belgium, Sept. 27, 2018 -- Guardsquare, the global reference in mobile application protection, announced today that it now offers support for setting up and using ProGuard in Android projects. ProGuard is a popular, open source optimizer and obfuscator for Java bytecode. The provided support packages will help developers to work more efficiently and get better results.

ProGuard is one of the most popular tools in Java and Android development. It was first released in 2002 and has since become the go-to tool for shrinking and optimizing Java bytecode. ProGuard makes Java and Android applications up to 90% smaller and up to 20% faster. In addition, it provides basic protection against reverse engineering as it enables developers to obfuscate the names of classes, fields and methods. ProGuard is included in Google's Android SDK and is used by developers in homegrown apps and large-scale enterprise projects.

Guardsquare now offers support packages to help ProGuard users to work more efficiently and get the best results. They enable application developers to leverage the expertise of Guardsquare's engineers in setting up ProGuard in Android projects. The support packages include:

  • Support for troubleshooting Android projects
  • Assistance in setting up and optimizing ProGuard configurations
  • Access to a collection of tuned configurations for popular Android libraries
  • Early access to new versions of ProGuard

Heidi Rakels, CEO of Guardsquare, said "ProGuard has played a key role in the development of Guardsquare. We now want to give its users access to the expertise we have accumulated over the years. It will help them to work faster and get more out of ProGuard."
