Virsec bags CyberSecured 2020 Enterprise Security Award

Virsec, the industry leader in application-aware workload protection, has been recognized with CyberSecured 2020 Enterprise Security Award for the Virsec Security Platform (VSP). The awards honor the outstanding product development achievements of manufacturers and suppliers whose products or services are considered particularly noteworthy in the transformation of cybersecurity.

The Virsec Security Platform is the first and only application-aware workload protection platform that incorporates System Integrity Assurance, Application Control and Memory Protection into a single solution. Virsec delivers in-depth visibility across the entire workload in any environment and blocks known and unknown threats that are undetected by heuristic and endpoint security solutions.

Virsec’s patented technology maps the legitimate execution of all applications, file libraries, operating systems, processes, and memory. Virsec instantly spots any deviations during runtime, which are positive signs of attack. The Virsec solution detects and stops advanced and evasive fileless and zero-day techniques, including buffer overflow attacks, stack smashing, DLL injections, return-oriented programming (ROP) and ROP gadgets, side channel attacks and corruption of configuration data.

“The workloads are the new attack surface,” explains Dave Furneaux, CEO of Virsec. “You see these attacks all around us, and it’s imperative we fundamentally change the way we think about securing our businesses and infrastructure. Conventional security tools and blacklisting models are no longer effective protection for these critical workloads. Virsec is unique in protecting any application workload, in any environment with unprecedented accuracy.”

The Virsec solution takes a deterministic, whitelisting approach to security and blocks advanced memory-based attacks, unknown threats, fileless malware, ransomware, and more with surgical precision. Virsec’s superior workload protection has made it a valued strategic partner to organizations such as Raytheon, Cisco, AVEVA, Broadcom, Schneider Electric and GHD.
