Radware Neutralizes Evasive Zero-Day Malware Threats With Cloud Malware Protection Service

MAHWAH, N.J., Feb. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Radware® (NASDAQ:RDWR), a leading provider of cyber security and application delivery solutions and services, today launched its Cloud Malware Protection Service, built to detect, alert and block upon evasive zero-day malware that elude existing anti-malware defenses and steal data.

The new cloud service includes audit tools that continuously test the user’s network for gaps in its malware protections, as well as real-time reporting to help organizations comply with the notification requirements under EU GDPR and other regulations focused at private data protection. Radware’s Cloud Malware Protection Service relies on traffic analysis to detect communication anomalies indicative of evasive zero-day malware activity. It leverages advanced machine learning, patented A.I. algorithms, big data analysis, and a global community of over two million enterprise users to identify and block malicious traffic that is consistent with data theft.

“Businesses today need solutions that can identify and respond to new malware as they emerge in order to better protect organizations and their customer data,” said Haim Zelikovsky, Vice President of Radware’s Cloud Security. “Our new Cloud Malware Protection Service adds a new layer of malware detection and mitigation, addressing a major hole in cloud services.”

Zero-day malware is notorious for evading detection, and more than half (51%) of data breaches involve the use of malware, according to Verizon’s 2017 Data Breach Investigations report. The average data breach costs companies $3.6 million in damages, according to the 2017 Cost of Data Breach Study from Ponemon Institute, and a single breach could cost organizations many millions of dollars in damages and immeasurable reputational damage. Radware’s research shows that half of all malware circulating today is classified as a zero-day malware, not recognized by existing known signatures or access control lists. These malwares often slip past anti-malware defenses and may reside undetected in a network for months, while hackers exploit the network and look for sensitive data.

At the same time, regulatory agencies in the U.S. and EU have passed laws to make companies work harder to prevent the loss of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). New rules in the EU are especially stringent. Under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), any company that controls private information of EU entities must have in place tight security controls to protect that data, and must notify authorities of any data breach within 72 hours of discovery. That notice must include the number of people affected, the categories of PII lost, and what the company is doing to stop the attack or halt its effects. Radware Cloud Malware Protection Service helps organizations meet these compliance requirements by detecting and blocking data-stealing malware in corporate networks, providing real-time alerts on data theft incidents, pinpointing breach sources and offering actionable mitigation steps to clean up malware infections.

“Modern malware is built to evade commonly employed cyber defenses. Using big data cloud platform together with machine learning and AI allows us to provide a new level of protection,” said David Aviv, Chief Technology Officer at Radware. “We intend to continue leveraging these technologies to further entrench Radware as a leading security company.”

The Cloud Malware Protection Service is a cloud-based service that does not require any installation of software or hardware. It plugs gaps in existing defenses with seamless integration while remaining an extremely cost-effective, low-touch solution.
