VP of Threat Research Michael St. Neitzel to discuss Sunbelt's breakthrough MX-Virtualization technology that examines unknown malware in a mini-Windows environment

Michael St. Neitzel

Sunbelt Software, a leading provider of Windows security software, today announced that its Vice President of Threat Research Michael St. Neitzel will be a featured speaker at the upcoming University of Florida Information Technology Security Awareness (ITSA) Day event. The ITSA will take place October 7th at the university's Reitz Union Auditorium in Gainesville, Florida.

As VP of Threat Research, St. Neitzel is responsible for malware research and scan engine technology development, and in fact he developed the MX-VirtualizationTM system that allows for secure real-time analysis of unknown malware. MX-V analyzes malware in real-time, in a secured memory "lock box" that emulates Windows. This fools the malware into thinking it has taken over the targeted PC and allows Sunbelt's VIPRE® Antivirus to observe how the malware behaves and eradicate it before it can harm the PC. MX-V technology is the safest way to protect against zero-day threats.

ITSA Day is targeted at professional IT workers at the University of Florida, and those in education, government, and business in the surrounding areas. It is designed as an opportunity to learn more about relevant security topics and network with other IT professionals from all over Florida. Bringing IT security awareness to campus IT workers and the community is a significant goal of the UF Office of Information Security and Compliance. ITSA Day is a free event and open to the public. No advance registration is required. For more information, visit http://www.itsa.ufl.edu/2009/index.html.
