It stops and neutralizes zero-days, advanced attacks, evasive file-based and file-less malware, ransomware, APTs and web-borne exploits before they can do any damage. Morphisec’s Moving Target Defense technology morphs the memory space so authorized code runs safely while malicious code is blocked and trapped. Morphisec has been lauded by industry leaders for its disruptive and powerful value proposition. Morphisec was designated a Gartner Cool Vendor and received the People’s Choice Award at PwC Cyber Security Day 2016, among other accolades.
