As threats are increasingly more sophisticated and targeted, traditional anti-virus detection is struggling to keep up. The traditional approach focuses on using fingerprint signatures of known malware to identify malware in the enterprise. This method of fingerprinting for detection is not only easily evaded, but it provides limited value to detecting targeted attacks against companies and emerging threats. To combat this problem, Invincea developed a novel method for detecting and analyzing previously unknown malware and 0-day exploits. The advanced detection approach runs in conjunction with Invincea’s secure virtual container, which is used to isolate the operating system and user data from exploits against vulnerable applications. By running high-risk apps like web browsers in a secure container, no prior knowledge, including signatures and IOCs of threats is required in order to prevent their damage to the system and loss of data.
