|Mimecast Announces Acquisition of Solebit|
Solebit’s technology is engineered to provide a fast, accurate and computationally efficient approach for the identification and isolation of zero-day malware and unknown threats in data files as well as links to external resources. Further enhancing Mimecast’s cyber resilience platform architecture, Solebit provides powerful threat protection to help customers face today’s broad threat landscape with evasion-aware, signature-less technology.
According to research
Solebit has developed a differentiated approach that is engineered to preclude the need for signatures and sandboxes. It is designed to help customers find advanced threats by recognizing when there is malicious code embedded within active content and data files. Solebit is built to scan content as it enters an organization’s systems to determine whether it is infected with malware in a transient way, avoiding the need for extra hardware and processing time typically required to isolate and detonate content presumed ‘risky.’ Solebit currently provides
“Security methods like signature-based antivirus and sandbox detonation are too limited when it comes to today’s most advanced threats. It’s time for a more capable, efficient and durable approach,” said
Solebit’s advanced threat detection capabilities are already integrated into Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection products. Combined with the recent acquisition of Ataata in the security awareness and training space, and the recently previewed early adopter web security program, Solebit brings another important set of microservices to the Mime|OS platform that all of Mimecast’s unified services are built upon.
