"As organizations look to cut security risk and costs without cutting into business productivity, Morphisec is enabling any business to prevent the most dangerous cyberattacks, not just the ones with the biggest budgets."
BEERSHEBA, Israel and BOSTON (PRWEB) December 03, 2020
Morphisec, a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint and server security solutions, today launched version 5.0 of Morphisec Guard, its replacement for legacy and next-generation antivirus (NGAV) tools that are increasingly ineffective against unknown and zero-day attacks. Morphisec Guard 5.0 utilizes the company’s patented Moving Target Defense technology to protect against these types of advanced attacks and combines it with enhancements for native security controls of Windows 10, so businesses don’t have to pay for what they already have. This powerful combination provides a more effective and lower-cost alternative to other endpoint security stacks.
New features on Morphisec Guard 5.0 bring enterprise-level control and visibility into Windows native security, such as Windows’ antivirus (Defender), drive encryption (BitLocker), personal firewall, and device control. Furthermore, the Morphisec Security Center, an on-premises or cloud-based management console, provides end-to-end visibility into organization-wide threats, including those prevented by Microsoft Defender and those thwarted by Morphisec’s Moving Target Defense technology.
“With the release of Morphisec Guard 5.0, we set out to help businesses achieve two important goals. First, prevent the breaches that bypass their antivirus and EDR tools,” said Netta Schmeidler, Morphisec’s VP of Product Management. “Second, make sure no one has to pay for security features that the operating system already has covered. Guard 5.0 adds to each of these for a complete endpoint solution that extends beyond antivirus by bringing visibility, control, and anti-tampering to Windows native security. Together, these capabilities ensure we're able to deliver greater protection and simplicity at a much lower cost, which will become imperative in 2021 as security budgets come under pressure."
Morphisec Guard 5.0 is underpinned by Morphisec’s patented Moving Target Defense technology. Moving Target Defense creates a zero-trust execution environment by morphing the application memory. By changing the memory structure of current applications, only trusted code is allowed to execute. This approach stops attacks deterministically and automatically, without requiring knowledge of threat type or relying on indicators of compromise (IOC), making it highly effective against zero-day and unknown threats.
“With the launch of Morphisec Guard 5.0, Morphisec continues to deliver on its promise of providing proactive, effective, and lower-cost security to more than 6 million endpoints," said Andrew Homer, Morphisec’s VP of Business Development and Security Strategy. "As organizations look to cut security risk and costs without cutting into business productivity, Morphisec is enabling any business to prevent the most dangerous cyberattacks, not just the ones with the biggest budgets.”
Additionally, Morphisec Guard 5.0 includes these new features:
- Automatic protection of network drives and folders
- Security for remotely launched processes
- Protection against new vulnerabilities like ZeroLogon
- Additional forensic information in threat logs
