How AppGuard Solo Defeats Undetected Malware?

Most tools aiming to prevent malware attacks are effective only when the malware is identified. AppGuard neutralizes malware by preventing the actions it requires to succeed. This is achieved through three kernel-level enforced controls: Launch, Containment, and Isolation.

(The Windows Kernel is a computer program at the core of the PC operating system) 

Launch Control Policies

Prohibit launches from risky folders or of dangerous
OS utilities.

Containment Control

Prevent harm by restricting what
risky applications may do without stopping the application

Isolation Control

Only specific Apps may access or change critical data
or settings.

Preventive Approach​

Appguard Solo default settings block advanced malware attacks that are designed to evade AV and Endpoint Detection and Response.

Simple, Silent, Effective

AppGuard Solo never asks users to make security decisions. Users can suspend it if they need to or adjust it to fit their needs even better.

Advanced Cybersecurity​​

AppGuard Solo is a cost-effective enhancement to your Antivirus. It provides advanced cybersecurity without a big IT budget.

Appguard​®, State of the Art Cybersecurity

AppGuard Solo works alongside and enhances any Antivirus Product, including Windows Defender. AppGuard will shield your Windows OS… even after newly, undetectable Malware bypasses your Antivirus.

What Is a Zero-Day Malware Attack?

A Zero-Day Exploit is a serious security flaw in software that hasn’t been discovered or fixed by the software developer or the public. These exploits are especially dangerous because hackers can take advantage of them before any patches or updates are available from the software maker, like Microsoft.

The speed at which antivirus (AV) companies respond to zero-day exploits is crucial. They need to quickly analyze the new threat, develop ways to detect and counteract it, and update their software to recognize the malicious code. During this period, systems are at a higher risk, as they remain exposed to potential attacks and data breaches.

AppGuard Solo Blocks Zero-Day Malware

By incorporating AppGuard into your security arsenal, you eliminate the need for accumulating additional malware detection tools that might still fail to prevent the latest malware attacks.
AppGuard protects you by adopting a completely different approach: instead of relying on detection, it blocks malware techniques, offering a new and effective method of security.
Hackers exploit your applications to damage your systems. AppGuard’s dynamic containment stops adversaries from using your applications for malicious purposes
AppGuard blocks all malware actions at the kernel level, its Zero Trust Framework does not need to guess if there is suspicious activity, it shuts down malware before it detonates.

Traditional Detection Tools Struggle to Differentiate Malicious and Benign Activities

The world is dominated by detection-based endpoint protection tools that only succeed if and when they recognize something specific about the malware attacking the host. This requires some form of pattern-matching to be successful. Antivirus software typically relies on signatures (also known as hash checksums). Additionally, there are many other transient (i.e., constantly changing) patterns in files, communications, behavior, and more. These patterns almost literally change with each new attack variant.

AppGuard’s Zero Trust Approach: Blocking Malware Actions Versus Detecting Malware

AppGuard implements zero trust principles directly within endpoints, operating under the assumption that some form of malware will inevitably infiltrate the system. Its strategy is to prevent the malware from executing its intended actions. By blocking just one critical action, AppGuard can neutralize an entire malware attack. This approach does not rely on identifying specific files, IP addresses, or behavior patterns, which are the transient factors that detection-based tools typically focus on.

How Does AppGuard Defeats Malware?

The video explains how AppGuard Solo outperforms traditional antivirus products by focusing on blocking the actions malware needs to perform, rather than relying on detecting malware. AppGuard uses three key controls at the kernel level: launch control, containment, and isolation. This approach ensures that even if new or unknown malware bypasses traditional antivirus detection, AppGuard prevents it from executing harmful actions, thereby protecting the system more effectively.

AppGuard represents cutting-edge cybersecurity technology, initially designed to safeguard US government agencies and now securing tens of thousands of organizations and millions of endpoints worldwide.
