No, not at all. Isn’t that amazing! Just close your running applications, install Morphisec Protector™. That’s it, you are done! Your machine will be immediately protected and Protector, our prevention powerhouse, will conceal vulnerabilities in your applications, web browsers and OS’s and trap any attacks.
Negligible, we like it slim and fast. The service is only briefly active during application load time. As a result, it has zero impact on performance. We want to keep your employees happy and productive. We secure their machines without disturbing their working environment. No updates, no reboots and no performance lags.
Morphisec provides rich contextual information about the attack from its beginning, including its origin, its behavior, its effect on your machine, whether it is a 0-day or correlates with an unpatched vulnerability.
We currently conduct sophisticated research in two main areas:
EMET and Morphisec address the same problem, preventing exploits. The similarities end there. Here’s a summary of their differences.
EMET – (Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit) is a toolkit used for exploit prevention. It has several flaws, namely:
Morphisec takes a completely different approach:
EMET is not intended to deliver visibility into organizational security or management of security events; it stops attacks without providing details. As a result, material insights are missing and organizations cannot form a holistic view. In comparison, Morphisec operates under the premise that an organization requires a continuous and lateral defense. Morphisec provides key attack forensic information such as timeline, organizational spread, user and application dimensions.
In addition to the complexity of configuration, management, and performance degradation, EMET can be bypassed by various methods. For example:
We do not change the operating system at all. We change how the application loads into the memory as it loads without affecting anything in the application.
ASRL is quite limited in its approach and fairly easy for attackers to handle.
At Morphisec, we view ASLR as the predecessor of a multi-variable, modern Moving Target Defense approach.
Morphisec Endpoint Security delivers protection that overcomes the limitations of ASRL. In addition, our solution offers a full management system, and is able to provide rich forensic information and intelligent classification and fingerprinting of attacks for actionable remediation directives.

“With Morphisec, we found a rare combination of powerful prevention and total compatibility with the Motoman working environment. In my experience, I have never seen a piece of enterprise security software that has been so easy and fast to deploy with practically zero configuration required and no effect on endpoint performance. We are very pleased with our decision to partner with Morphisec.”

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
I am convinced that there are only two types of companies: those that have been hacked and those that will be. And even they are converging into one category: companies that have been hacked and will be hacked again.

Moving Target Defense enables us to create, analyze, evaluate, and deploy mechanisms and strategies that are diverse and that continually shift and change over time to increase complexity and cost for attackers, limit the exposure of vulnerabilities and opportunities for attack, and increase system resiliency.
