McAfee acquires LynuxWorks’s ValidEdge sandboxing technology
McAfee has taken one more step to improve its Anti-malware solution by acquiring LynuxWorks’s ValidEdge sandboxing technology. McAfee is expected to launch its product with this new sandboxing technology by the end of the year.
ValidEdge technology works by running the code inside a sandbox so malicious activity can be detected without risk to computer. The new acquired technology will help McAfee products to analyse new malware in the sandbox to see how it impacts in real computing enironment.
“McAfee has been investing in technology to help our customers protect against malware for 20 years. We are now extending our lead in malware protection by continuing to invest in new products and product enhancements,” said Pat Calhoun, senior vice president and general manager of network security at McAfee.
“Point products can’t provide adequate protection against these advanced attacks, which is why McAfee is delivering an integrated, multi layered, managed solution that provides comprehensive malware protection across endpoints and networks.”
This move will help McAfee to compete with competitors such as Sourcefire and FireEye who have already implemented some kind of sandboxing for malware defense.
