Cyemptive launches protection against sleeper ransomware

On September 4, Snohomish, WA-based Cyemptive Technologies, Inc. unveiled Cyemptive Encryption Scanner and Cyemptive Perimeter Fortress, the first solution on the market to detect and eliminate sleeper ransomware.

Available now, the new products use breakthrough, patented technology developed by Cyemptive that takes a pre-emptive approach to cybersecurity, monitoring the state of files rather than monitoring APIs to detect and eliminate sleeper ransomware, as well as other cyberattacks and threats, in seconds.

Cyemptive Perimeter Fortress (CPF) provides a patented, differentiated solution for ensuring firewalls will not be compromised, with the ability to withstand and thwart attacks that other solutions can’t, while identifying and preventing the attacks in seconds. Cyemptive Encryption Scanner (CES) is a new, proven scanning technology that detects both known and unknown forms of encryption applied to files (including sleeper ransomware) to a magnitude of five times more than other solutions on the market today. According to the company, the new products when used together address one of the biggest cyberthreats facing businesses and government today: sleeper ransomware.

“Sleeper ransomware encrypts files gradually (i.e. one file per hour) over many months of time, and encrypts all of an organization’s data including back-ups. Unlike conventional ransomware, backing up your organization’s data will not solve the problem because your backups will be encrypted too,” said Rob Pike, CEO and founder of Cyemptive. “Artificial intelligence technologies will not identify sleeper ransomware, and that means that other product offerings on the market, which use machine learning to monitor APIs, will not protect against such cyberthreats and attacks. Cyemptive has the only field-tested solution to sleeper ransomware on the market today.”

The new products also offer protection against other types of attacks, such as those used in recent hacker attacks on one of the largest credit card companies. Unlike other solutions on the market today, which use machine learning to monitor APIs and can take hours to months to detect attacks, Cyemptive’s patented technologies take a future “state-based system” approach that monitors files, memory, operating systems, applications and data, creating the ability to identify and eliminate attacks in seconds.
