Key Threat Prevention technologies:



Anti-MalwareClosed A component on Endpoint Security Windows clients. This component protects clients from known and unknown viruses, worms, Trojan horses, adware, and keystroke loggers.

Harmony Linux Anti-Malware engine detects trojans, viruses, malware, and other malicious threats.

The engine is implemented as a multi-threaded flexible scanner daemon. It is managed centrally through a web-console.

In addition, it supports command line utilities for on-demand file scans, access functionality, and automatic signature updates.

The Threat Hunting technology lets the user proactively search for cyber threats that made it through the first line of defense to the Linux Endpoint device.

Threat Hunting uses advanced detection capabilities, such as queries and automation, to find malicious activities and extract hunting leads of data.
