Minerva Labs' unique solution for protecting home-office users' endpoints, integrates with any VPN provider. The solution provides full endpoint protection against known and unknown threats such as file-less attacks, PowerShell scripts, ransomware, malicious documents (macro), and other evasive malware. It also provides browser isolation and full integration with built-in Microsoft Windows Defender.
Minerva Labs, a leader in cyber protection for edge devices and servers, which protects more than one million end-users worldwide, offers a unique home computer security (BYOD) solution while working remotely on the corporate network.
Managed service providers (MSPs) have proved invaluable for companies that want to focus on their core business by outsourcing IT and security needs to experts who can keep them protected from everyday threats.
Endpoint security solutions are failing to provide adequate protections to address today’s security threats, specifically malware, according to Minerva Labs. A majority of the respondents surveyed indicated a heightened concern of a major malware breach in the coming year and acknowledged that they require more than an AV solution on the endpoint to combat the rising threat.
Israeli anti-evasion endpoint security solution provider Minerva Labs yesterday released the results of a new survey which found anti-malware technology is struggling to keep up with modern digital threats.
Minerva Labs, a leading provider of anti-evasion technology for enterprise endpoints, today announced the results of a survey of 600 IT security professionals which found endpoint security solutions are failing to provide adequate protections to address today's security threats, specifically malware. A majority of the respondents surveyed indicated a heightened concern of a major malware breach in the coming year and acknowledged that they require more than an antivirus (AV) solution on the endpoint to combat the rising threat.
Although endpoint security solutions have improved, a new survey of IT security professionals finds that three quarters believe their existing anti-malware solutions would be able to prevent no more than 70 percent of infections.
A new survey out today from Minerva Labs Ltd. has found that a majority of information technology security professionals believe that endpoint security solutions are failing to provide adequate protection against modern security threats.

Protecting municipalities against cyberattacks is a major challenge. Overall, municipal technology tends to be characterized by legacy infrastructure, diverse requirements and a complex network topology. State and local government IT professionals are often charged with overseeing loosely associated, disparate networks, each servicing different needs and constituents.
Security professionals constantly get alerts, warning them of anomalies. These early warnings are imperative for effectively mitigating damages from a cyber attack – sometimes allowing infosec pros to halt attacks before they can breach sensitive data. False alarms do happen though, and over time, infosec pros become desensitized to the these alerts.
It’s not only the White House, the NSA, and the Senate Intelligence Committee that should be alarmed. State and local government organizations face a growing cybercrime threat. Hackers are targeting municipalities and state agencies in part because they are often easier to breach than better-defended enterprise networks.
A recent attack discovered by security researchers from Minerva Lab used malware dubbed GhostMiner, which has adopted the most effective techniques used by other malware families, including fileless infection attacks.
Security researchers from Minerva Labs have discovered a new strain of cryptocurrency-mining malware that uses PowerShell code to obtain fileless execution, and scans and stops the process of other miners that might be running on the same infected host.
These security features are available as additional options in the Gemalto Color Laser Shield secure identity solutions range. The new enhancements are simple to adopt by the government agents in the field. They are designed to counter forgery while remaining easy for officials to verify their authenticity, thereby providing convenience for legitimate holders.
Minerva Labs announced the release of the industry’s first, installation-free Remote User Protection solution for Mac and Windows systems that are not under the organization’s direct control. These new capabilities allow enterprises to automatically activate malware protection throughout the entire remote session when connecting to corporate assets, without relying on the user’s own security measures or requiring user interaction.
Baseline AV products, be they traditional or next gen, play an important role in safeguarding the endpoint, but attackers will always find ways around their detection-based approaches. That’s why such technologies aren’t sufficient by themselves to secure laptops, workstations, servers or other devices in the modern enterprise. To block attacks, security teams need to better understand the mechanics of evasion and the limits of signature, pattern, and behavior-based security solutions.
Most cybersecurity executives believe Graves' methodology to tackle the problem is mistaken and a focus on counterattacking would be using our resources incorrectly and instead believe the best defense is to actually have strong defense. Omri Moyal, co-Founder, vice president of research at Minerva Labs says that making it difficult and costly for attacker to get into sensitive systems is the best road to take, especially at the state level.
Incidents that have involved evasive malware, and in particular fileless techniques for bypassing endpoint security measures, were prevalent in 2017. They are set to be even more damaging, costly, and exasperating in 2018.
When announcing the feature, Microsoft described it as a layer of real-time protection that would allow users to prevent ransomware from accessing their data by defining what programs have access to certain folders. Thus, malware and other unauthorized apps would not be able to touch the files in those directories. According to Yago Jesus, however, this added protection can be easily bypassed by using an authorized application such as Office to access the data
Every day there’s a new breach, technology or announcement in the world of cyber security. This leads us to believe 2018 is going to be a critical time for security, so we wanted to hear what experts around the globe had to say.
Anti-evasion software specialist Minerva Labs has released its Year in Review report, which takes an in-depth look at the approaches used by common malware families to bypass anti-malware tools, including antivirus and analysis sandboxes.
In a 2016 report with Rapid7, IDC estimates that 70% of attacks start from the endpoint. Sophisticated ransomware exploded into a global epidemic this year, and other forms of malware exploits, including mobile malware and malvertising are also on the rise.
Security researchers have uncovered a new evasive cryptominer dubbed "WaterMiner" hidden in modified video games, including a Grand Theft Auto (GTA) mod, available for download on a Russian-speaking forum.
Building upon its core capability to deceive malware into inaction, Minerva has taken the concept of vaccination beyond simply a “cool idea” for lab environments and allowed this technique to be deployed at an enterprise level to expand the endpoint defender’s arsenal.
Minerva today announced the release of the industry's first Endpoint Malware Vaccination module for enterprises, that helps simulate infection markers across enterprise endpoints to deceive malware into believing it has already infected the system.
