The Leader in Moving Target Defense Now Offers ‘Morphisec Guard’ as a Replacement for Antivirus to Simplify End-to-End Endpoint Protection
BE’ER SHEVA, ISRAEL AND BOSTON -- JULY 29, 2020 -- Morphisec, the leader in Moving Target Defense, today introduced its updated product line of cloud-delivered endpoint threat prevention solutions. To simplify and improve the efficacy of endpoint threat prevention against the rise of advanced ransomware, zero-days, and evasive malware, Morphisec is introducing Morphisec Guard as a replacement for legacy and next-gen antivirus (NGAV) tools that are increasingly ineffective against unknown attacks.
Morphisec Guard leverages the company’s patented Moving Target Defense technology for application memory morphing and couples it seamlessly with Windows’s native security to provide a proactive end-to-end, endpoint protection platform. Unlike signature and heuristic-based antivirus that are increasingly bypassed by sophisticated attacks, Morphisec Guard thwarts both file-based malware and fileless threats through a single dashboard and lightweight agent.
“Morphisec Guard makes replacing ineffective NGAV tools easier than ever,” said Netta Schmeidler, VP Product at Morphisec. “Our unique, proactive approach to endpoint security not only does a better job of handling signature-based attacks. It also prevents against unknown zero-day exploits and fileless threats that account for more than 80% of successful enterprise breaches today.”
Morphisec’s advanced threat protection capabilities for fileless and in-memory attacks are now also available under the Morphisec Shield product, which can be installed alongside any other 3rd party antivirus security tool. Morphisec Shield can provide critical prevention capabilities to next-generation antivirus or EDR solutions by bolstering endpoint defenses against attacks designed to bypass existing controls.
“The drastic shift to remote workforces in the first half of the year has only further bifurcated two distinct needs from our customers as they look to defend an increasingly complex endpoint attack surface,” added Schmeidler. “With Morphisec Guard offering a complete, proactive endpoint solution, and Shield providing advanced threat prevention to any security stack, we’re now well-positioned to provide simple proactive endpoint security to any business.”
Both Morphisec Guard and Shield are underpinned by Morphisec’s patented Moving Target Defense technology. 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-days and unknown threats. With Guard and Shield, Morphisec continues to deliver on its promise to provide robust, resilient security to more than 5 million endpoints as organizations shift to agile cloud and virtual environments.
With Morphisec Guard and Shield, cybersecurity professionals have the ability to:
- Prevent file-based and fileless threats without continuous monitoring or generating reams of data.
- Reduce IT complexity and protect business continuity. Protect in-between patching cycles; employ as a Windows 7 compensating control.
- Gain visibility into all endpoint attacks including Microsoft Defender AV events.
- See attack timeline and correlate events to make smarter, faster decisions.
- Deploy across virtual, physical, or hybrid IT environments.
“As our full endpoint prevention stack, Morphisec Guard allowed our company to easily switch off from feeble NGAV and outsourced EDR to a more effective security solution that actually stops breaches at a much lower cost of ownership,” said Rick Klotz, CIO of Altra industrial Motion. “It’s human nature for CISOs to pick the biggest players and spend a lot of money, but it’s a false sense of security and doesn’t make them any safer from an attack. If anything, the big traditional tools add more complexity and confusion. With its hardened prevention centric architecture, Morphisec simplifies our operations and stops the dangerous attacks before they can cause damage.”
