SecureAge’s APEX engine uses machine learning to recognize zero-day and mutated threats that are traditionally undetectable
(NEW YORK) (May 14, 2019) — SecureAge Technology, an data security and encryption solution provider for enterprise businesses and end users, today announced the integration of its APEX anti-malware engine into VirusTotal, a Chronicle product, and free online service that aggregates many anti-malware products and other scanning engines to check for malware and malicious content. The submission of files, URLs, domains, etc. to VirusTotal helps to raise global cyber security understanding.
SecureAge APEX is an anti-malware scanning engine powered by artificial intelligence, designed to extend the detection capabilities of the SecureAge SecureAPlus endpoint protection platform (EPP). The APEX engine provides next-generation endpoint detection alongside other SecureAPlus features, such as Application Control, Application Whitelisting, multi-cloud anti-virus, fileless attack protection and more. To deal with advanced threats like zero-day malware, APEX goes beyond traditional scanners by using machine learning to identify unseen and mutated malware types and variants from day one of their release.
“As part of the VirusTotal network, our priority is to champion the value that the APEX engine can bring to users in keeping them informed and protected from existing and unknown malware types,” said Dr. Teow-Hin Ngair, CEO, SecureAge Technology. “We hope that this integration is also a testament to our commitment to become a major contributor to the overall cybersecurity community.”
As part of VirusTotal, the APEX engine combines deep learning technology to better understand potential threats independent of a reliance on signatures. Within VirusTotal, APEX will target WindowsPE files.
