Two-Level Protection Solution against APT Attacks Set to Advance into Global Markets

[INQ. NO. 1702E41] Recently, Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) has rapidly emerged as a new hacking technique used by cyber criminals to tenaciously attack targets using various methods (e.g., e-mail and the Web) until their objectives are achieved.
Notably, NPCore has successfully developed a two-level APT defense solution “Zombie ZERO” and provided it to governments, financial bodies, universities and enterprises. The firm is a specialized company for APT and ransomware defense solutions and provides network and end-point security. It has gained fame in the anti-virus centric security market by constantly developing specialized malware detection/response solutions.


A New Security System to Defend APT Attacks
Zombie ZERO uses an agent-based behavioral detection system installed on PCs and a network-based behavioral detecting system analyzing files from network traffic through virtual machines. A new security solution designed to defend against APT attacks and detect malware, Zombie ZERO provides robust information security to prevent data exfiltration and network damages.
Zombie ZERO’s agent detects the increase of malicious entropy by classifying with behavior detection categories, including encrypting application program interface (API), file manipulating API and existence of signs.201702e_%ed%8e%98%ec%9d%b4%ec%a7%80_47_06

So, when higher figures of entropy appear, it judges the process as a malware such as ransomware and isolates and uploads the pattern data to enterprise security management (ESM). Then, Zombie ZERO ESM shares the pattern data with other Zombie ZERO agents to prevent infection and spread. The agent detects and prevents specific unauthorized programs from modifying or manipulating the possessing files. The external conflicts are prevented by the installation in I/O driver level.
For enterprises, Zombie ZERO effectively detects, blocks, and quarantines malware code for network and end-point. It is capable of detecting, blocking and quarantining through a behavior-based system. So, it can strongly protect vulnerable anti-virus software.
NPCore established a limited liability company (LLC) and branch office in the USA and Vietnam in 2014 and is operating distributors in Japan, Indonesia, Taiwan and Malaysia. The company has already exported $200,000 worth of solutions to Japan. | Blog Magazine of korean electronics, brands and Goods
