These industry reports regularly document how traditional anti-malware products are failing their users
Chantilly, VA (PRWEB) December 11, 2008
Blue Ridge Networks today announced Blue Ridge/Secure AppGuard™, an anti-malware solution that protects PCs from attack by the latest generation of sophisticated malware threats, increasing endpoint security coverage to address more than 90% of known and unknown vulnerabilities.
Unlike today's market leading products, AppGuard does not rely on signatures that are quickly outdated, or require constant monitoring and tuning of policy rules. Instead, Secure AppGuard prevents an application from executing instructions that would indicate it has been hijacked by malware.
An August 2008 study published by Cyveillance Inc. and similar market studies by Secunia, reveal that legacy security products detect only 34% of malware attacks, leaving corporate networks and data constantly at risk. "These industry reports regularly document how traditional anti-malware products are failing their users," stated Blue Ridge Networks CEO Mike Fumai. "Security experts agree that a new approach is required to protect users and their PCs from exposure to these attacks."
Secure AppGuard is unique in that it prevents an attacked application from harming itself, other applications, or critical operating system resources by regulating file system and registry resource access. For instance, by focusing on blocking actions that should never occur, Secure AppGuard eliminates the administrative complexities and end-user decision making that legacy Host Intrusion Prevention Systems (HIPS) products impose.
Secure AppGuard complements existing security software by:
- Blocking Zero-day malware that can attack even the most up-to-date and well maintained systems and networks;
- Increasing protection while minimizing the impact on IT workload through simplified product installation and configuration, and eliminating constant parameter fine-tuning required by HIPS products;
- Running non-intrusively with virtually no impact on system performance and end-user productivity.
Immediately upon installation, Secure AppGuard protects the applications most targeted by hackers, including Web browsers, Microsoft Office Applications, and Media Players. Additional applications are easily added to the guarded list by either System Administrators or end-users.
Blue Ridge/Secure AppGuard is priced at $24.95 per user and is available for purchase and download today.
