REactively Defending against Advanced Cybersecurity Threats
Advanced Cybersecurity Threats can compromise software and automatically propagate from host to host all over the Internet, without any end-user intervention. The massive infection of hosts can disrupt many services and cause annoyance, significant financial loss, or even affect the operation of life-critical infrastructures such as nuclear plants, and hospitals. ReAct aims to fight software exploitation, and mitigate such Advanced Cybersecurity Threats in a timely fashion, based on four complementary actions:
- Probes actively, and in a transparent and ethical way, the network for identifying unknown vulnerabilities.
- Once aware of new vulnerabilities, automatically patches all vulnerable hosts of an organization, using software instrumentation, and secures them temporarily, until the official patch of the vulnerability is published.
- Detects exploited hosts and immediately isolates them from the rest of the network to limit malware propagation.
- Analyzes security incidents for forecasting future cybersecurity threats.
Actions of all four components are projected through a visual interface, which increases situational awareness for the entire life cycle of the product.
