United States : IBM unveils new TRUSTEER APEX security software

May 26, 2014

IBM has unveiled a new security software that assists in stopping threats at the weakest link, the endpoint, including laptops and desktops which are most likely to harmed by malware.

The company's Trusteer Apex software is the latest product in IBM's Threat Protection System.

Announced earlier in May, Threat Protection System, takes advantage of security intelligence and behavioral analytics to go beyond conventional anti-virus approaches and firewalls to disrupt attacks across the whole attack chain - from break-in to exfiltrate.

IBM's newly announced Trusteer Apex software blocks attacks and closes them when they take place on the endpoint.

Yaron Dycian, Vice President of Marketing, Products & Services at Trusteer, an IBM company, stated : "Through extensive research, IBM has identified specific stages of the attack chain where cyber criminals have relatively few options to execute their malicious content. Current point solutions in the market offer narrow protections against specific attack vectors and create significant workload on overstretched security teams, making it difficult to manage against cyber threats. Our strategic chokepoint technology introduces a fresh approach for breaking the threat lifecycle and preempting cyber attacks."
