HGP – Invincea Debuts New Invisible Endpoint Security Agent
X was developed independently to secure enterprise endpoint devices by combining deep learning with behavioral monitoring in one lightweight agent.
Endpoint security software provider Invincea has released a new version of its product called, simply and curiously enough, X.
Yes, X. There’s no conventional name for the product, no “signature,” so to speak. This fits the niche of the company to a “T”: Invincea’s security expertise is protecting endpoint devices from signature-less data exploits, or exploits in which the signature is used only once and non-relevant.
A signature on a data breach is what is used to identify the exploit, and it most often uses a hashtag in the identifier. #Nimda, #Michaelangelo and #stormworm are but three of the many example signatures of previous virus worms.
“Most conventional products today rely on a threat having a signature in order to detect it. The problem with the signature-based security approach is that pretty much all the exploits now are one-and-done with a given threat,” Invincea CEO Anup Ghosh told eWEEK. “They use it; it’s expended; they don’t use it again.”
