Shape Security Launches Product to Reinvent Website Security
Jan 21 14
Shape Security launched a revolutionary new product to protect websites against the most dangerous cyber attacks. The ShapeShifter(TM) is a network security appliance that prevents website breaches by immediately disabling the capability of malware, bots and other scripted attacks to interact with web application. The key to being able to block attacks on websites from malware and other scripts is a technique called real-time polymorphism. Malware has long used polymorphism, rewriting its code every time a new machine was infected, to easily evade antivirus detection systems. Shape is now reversing this advantage, using polymorphic code as a powerful new foundational tool for website defense. Shape has invented patent-pending technology to be able to implement real-time polymorphism, or dynamically changing code, on any website, to remove the static elements that botnets and malware depend on for their attacks. When a ShapeShifter protects a website, instead of encountering an application with fixed elements that are trivial to program an attack against, cybercriminals now face the daunting task of making their malware interact with a web application that has become a moving target, constantly rewriting itself. All of this happens transparently, with legitimate users continuing to see the original, unchanged user interface.
