BluVector Speculative Code Execution (SCE) Engine is the security market’s first analytic specifically designed to detect fileless malware as it traverses the network. This capability comes as the industry has seen a significant spike in “invisible” or “memory-based” cyber-attacks on enterprises.
BluVector Speculative Code Execution Engine Overview
BluVector’s Speculative Code Execution engine is capable of emulating how code will behave when executed in memory and to what extent these behaviors might initiate a security breach. By covering all potential execution chains and focusing on malicious capacity rather than malicious behavior, the technology vastly reduces the number of execution environments and the quantity of analytic results that must be investigated. The result, 99%+ detection accuracy of this otherwise “invisible” threat.
Recent examples of threats that used such vectors of attack include “Petya,” “NotPetya” and “WannaCry.” This capability is especially relevant for American Express, given recent industry attacks using malicious advertising to infect users of the legitimate websites of financial institutions.
- The engine operates on any network stream
- Emulates how malware will behave when it is executed
- Operates at line speeds
- Multi-condition runtime heuristics
- High accuracy ensures near zero false positives
- Transparent detection
