What is Engine Zero?
Malicious software or Malware is in the business of doing harm to data, devices and people. Viruses, worms and spyware are all variants of a very dangerous and quick growing menace to your safety and that of your business. In recent years the majority of devastating attacks were launched using notorious Ransomware and Cryptojacking programs costing millions.
Malware is excellent at its job – and you need to be excellent at yours to defend against it. Traditional security systems and anti-virus are successful at identifying existing signatures but are defenseless against more recent highly malleable and malicious threats. Hackers often just create new variants of existing malware or leverage effective zero-day techniques against you and your business. How do you defend against this constantly evolving threat? You need to evolve.
Coverage of known and zero-day attacks. Our engine released in June of 2017 has proven itself able to detect high-profile malware such as BadRabbit ransomware, first seen in Oct, 2017, without any previous signatures.
In recent tests our malware detection rate scored the highest in terms of accuracy, surpassing other vendors and open source alternatives.
This engine is very efficient and utilizes very little resource. Only such efficiency can provide malware inspection on the network gateway with very little performance impact.
