Yet Another Malware Killer

“What the team said their design does differently is add real-time malware killing to the mix that eliminates the need to send data to administrators for verification, losing valuable seconds to stop an infection.”

Defender for Endpoint (and I’m sure competitive equivalents) already has “block at first sight” (aka Cloud Delivered Protection) to prevent unknown or polymorphic malware. Attack Surface Reduction also has rules to block software with low or no reputation. Plus it’s maturing and improving constantly, with a massive head start.

Best thing this company could do is sell its IP to an established player, which is probably what they’re gunning for with this press release.

Last thing I need is another bloody magic antimalware bullet for some sales droid to sell to my management at the pub. There are more effective tools already in the tool belt that need to be implemented properly first.
