Malware : detection is doomed

About the Talk

High-value companies are getting their secrets stolen every week. There are always new zero-day exploits: detection is impossible for something which has never been seen before. Bromium believes detection of all malware is hopeless, whether in the network or the endpoint. Using transparent micro-virtualisation to isolate every potential source of malware is the only way forward. This talk will show a PC being attacked using a recent zero-day exploit. It will explain the implications for network security: defence at the perimeter is no longer possible. Micro-virtualisation is the solution. This talk will show micro-virtualisation defeating the malware attack and explore its architecture - a distributed system running on one PC.
