New Automata-architected Multi-Engine approach wins Reactive and Proactive tests
SYDNEY, Australia and PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – 17 November 2014 – Wontok, an innovator of malware prevention solutions for endpoints, cloud and network providers today announced its second consecutive VB 100 Award from Virus Bulletin, the leading independent anti-malware online magazine and producers of the VB 100 Comparative. In the latest comparative’s VB 100 RAP (Reactive and Proactive) test which measures detection rates using the latest In-the-Wild malware samples available as well as newer malware variants, Wontok leads at top of right quadrant. Last December, upon Wontok’s debut in the VB 100, Wontok scored 1st in proactive detection and 2nd in combined Reactive and Proactive detection RAP amongst other participants maintaining the CPU performance impact similar to a single-engine product.
Wontok’s new automata-architected multi-engine AV SDK in Wontok™ SafeCentral AntiMalware is based on in-house developed software technology and applies the formal ‘finite automata’ mathematical model, which allows concurrent and simultaneous execution of multiple antimalware scan-engines enabling highest possible degree of viral detection without interoperability conflicts or deadlocks or blocking.
Oleg Kouznetsov, Chief Systems Architect, Wontok adds: “I congratulate our engineers for in nine months, we managed to surpass some big name vendors that have been in the anti-malware business for the better part of the last 30 years, solving major technical issues that have been holding back progress in the industry as a whole. Our Wontok SafeCentral AntiMalware is driven by using best-of-breed scan engines and wrapped by our proprietary technology.”
Wontok’s Secure by Design philosophy and engineering design methodologies starts security architecture from the ground up by assuming malware is already present on the endpoint, cloud, VDI, VDN client and approaches anti-malware differently from the traditional antivirus detection companies. By working at the deepest defense layer at kernel level for interception, monitoring and protection where malware resides, Wontok keeps institutions and consumers sensitive data safe regardless even if malware is already present.
Adam Tegg, CEO, Wontok states: “We invest heavily in our R&D. External tests like the VB 100 Comparative give us both validation and information for further performance enhancements. As Advanced Persistent Threats and Zero Day attacks increase, proactive anti-malware solutions will increasingly become important to protect institutions, governments and consumers from cybercrimes.”
