Industry: Anti-malware solutions
Security Axioms has created a new way to provide secure access to data stored in the cloud. The company’s platform technology, Gyrus, is an anti-malware solution based on virtual machine monitoring and memory analysis technologies. While previous anti-malware solutions attempt to model specific malware signatures, Gyrus focuses on the essential properties of modern malware.
Gyrus addresses basic security goals like authentication, confidentiality and integrity. Only authenticated users can download or upload files; unauthorized file access is erased and the original file restored through the virtual machine’s archive; and only user-verified changes are stored in the cloud.
While more organizations and individuals are moving toward a cloud-based storage model, concerns about data security remain a significant obstacle for many. Security Axioms’ solution will help alleviate those concerns.
