In a system running “regular” encryption solution, advanced malware can copy and send out data files in plain, via proprietary network protocol, to the originating hacker.
Such advanced malware today are targeting cloud services, storage and applications, and it is hard to stop such attacks.
SecureData 5.0’s integrated APPLICATION WHITELISTING allows only user-listed trusted applications to run, so any malware not on the “members only” list cannot run.
However this alone cannot ensure comprehensive data safety.
Some malware can hijack trusted applications hence bypassing a whitelist. SecureData 5.0's Application Binding feature will ensure that an application only does what it is supposed to do, or certain files can only be accessed by a given application. Eg. Adobe Acrobat cannot open word.docx (only Microsoft Word can), only Oracle can open Oracle data files, etc.
Some even more clever advanced malware (eg rootkit, APT - Advanced Persistent Threat) can even sit below an operating system, or hide in its own VM below the O/S and bypass any security solutions on the systems, so as to avoid detection.
As they bypass SecureData this way, then, again, all the see or steal is encrypted data, as they occur too low in the stack, and hence under the encryption engine.
Some advanced malware can disable your anti-virus, anti-spyware and other installed security solutions! If these disable the SecureData, then, again, all they get is encrypted data.
For even more assurance, SecureData 5.0 also allows users to create Data Sandboxes and Application Sandboxes.
Eg if a web browser is transmitting malware, or if a trusted application is hijacked or infected with malware, then any action it takes, or any data file it tries to access, is limited to within the sandboxes. This is useful for mitigating any zero-day attacks. As we run more applications in the cloud, you can appreciate the value of this feature.
Either way, with SecureData's integrated 3-way defense, your data remains persistently protected from these new and diverse threats.
