Virsec launches application security platform

Security company Virsec has launched a new security platform aimed at preventing attacks on server infrastructure and the software supply chain.

The company’s new Deterministic Protection Platform is designed to ensure better protection against threats to software workloads by mapping the expected performance of an organisation’s software and stopping unexpected behaviour.

Virsec claims the platform can reduce threat actor dwell time from minutes to milliseconds, while protecting server workloads across the entire runtime.

Virsec CEO Dave Furneaux said the platform has been designed to secure the full application stack, consisting of web, host and memory, at runtime, regardless of application type or environment.

“Security practitioners are exhausted at the failed promise of ‘protection’ when many vendors merely offer alerts after an attack on their applications. As we’ve seen with Log4j, PrintNightmare, and other recent attacks, this approach is not working,” he said.

“When we founded Virsec, we took a ‘first principles’ approach to protect software, regardless of the attacker’s preferred exploit or attack method. Now, the name of our platform says it all — we can determine what your software is supposed to do and immediately stop any attack.”

The platform is available through an annual subscription service. Furneaux said Virsec today has customers in the government, health care, financial services, retail, energy and insurance sectors.
