In the past decade, malware has become considerably more sophisticated, but the industry is still focused on developing solutions for cleaning and removing malware. Proactive Defense, the new feature of Imunify360 now in beta, adds a different approach to protect your Linux web servers - it actually prevents malware from running in the first place.
Here is how Proactive Defense in Imunify360 works:
Proactive Defense continuously analyses running scripts, identifies dangerous behaviors in Linux web servers in real time, then blocks potentially malicious executions automatically and with zero latency. It protects websites running PHP, the most common programming language, against zero-day attacks.
Proactive Defense utilizes advanced heuristics to detect potentially dangerous execution sequences and automatically stops those sequences before they harm your servers. However, Imunify360 allows administrators to tailor the action according to their preferences - in log mode, it records events for the review; in kill mode, it kills the script execution identified as dangerous.
Proactive Defense uses a unique method of identifying security risks - it analyzes what scripts do rather than what is actually in the code or file. It prevents malware, both new and old, from actually running on your servers. Proactive Defense stops even the malware that scanners are unable to detect.
Imunify360 blocks attacks through a combination of technologies: signature matching, real-time behavior analysis for blocking malware, and herd immunity powered by insights collected from servers all over the world. While Imunify360’s anti-malware feature, Malware Scanner, detects known attacks, Proactive Defense takes protection to a whole new level by defending against new attacks. It now delivers the optimal anti-malware solution.
