As cyber attacks become more common and yet more complex, new methods for understanding and protecting against them become a necessity. This seminar will go into detail about new technologies from ValidEdge, a leading malware-analysis company, LynuxWorks™, a leader in real-time security, and OPSWAT, the industry-leading multiple-engine malware-scanning provider. The OPSWAT Metascan product provides IT professionals and software engineers an easy way to enhance network security and integrate multiple antivirus scanning technologies and URL filtering into their proprietary solutions. The ValidEdge technology and products are used to quickly dissect new and unknown malware as it enters a network, giving the same level of intelligence as if the malware writer included his source code with the attack. The LynxSecure virtualization platform from LynuxWorks is used to provide isolated secure partitions either on an endpoint or in a network appliance that contains malware from spreading further in the system, and offers military-grade protection against new cyber attacks.
This seminar will look at these three key technologies in detail, demonstrating how they can be used together to give new levels of security against cyber attacks by offering complete visibility into a new piece of malware, even when packed, encrypted or obfuscated, and then show how the intended target can be protected from its attack, even after it has bypassed current endpoint protection technologies.
