BBX Technologies Inc.'s ImmuneEngine seeks to secure computers running Microsoft Corp.'s Windows operating system without slowing their performance and without the need for traditional file signature updates, according to Bob Terry, chairman and chief technical officer of BBX Technologies.
The product does not require training in or understanding of network security management because it automatically analyzes computers for unauthorized program installations, file movements and hardware connections, as well as worms and viruses, he said.
The automated technology, which resides on desktop computers, builds a dynamic electronic map of protection vectors/defense quadrants and establishes a protection matrix for each machine.
Once the matrix is complete, ImmuneEngine continuously scans for attempted changes, unauthorized installations or unauthorized movement of program files in real time. If an unauthorized event occurs, the product automatically collects data, halts the intrusion and restores the computer to the original configuration.
ImmuneEngine then sends a report to a console monitoring station. The report is rerouted directly to the network administrator's computer, giving him or her details on the incident and the status of targeted computers.
