KEY SECURITY INITIATIVES

With the increase in advanced threats it has always been imperative to implement solutions that can protect the data/assets from zero day attacks. The email and end point protection with separate signature and sandboxing database is always a big challenge against the advanced threat vectors. The organization was looking for an advanced solution to protect the data/assets from zero day attacks. Thus, a moving target defense solution was implemented across the organization end points and server farm to detect and prevent ransomware and zero-day malware attacks. This solution complements any signature based end point security solution and works on the principle of morphing the system resources by scrambling the inner structure of process in the memory space.
