Invincea

Invincea is a venture-backed software company that is bringing strong desktop security to companies with InvinceaTM Browser Protection and Invincea Document Protection. Invincea delivers the first and only fully virtualized browser and PDF reader solutions that seamlessly run in their own virtual environments separate from the desktop operating system to protect users against all types of Web-borne and PDF embedded threats. Originally funded by DARPA to build a prototype virtualized Web browsing solution, the patent-pending technology developed jointly with George Mason University's Center for Secure Information Systems has been commercialized under Invincea and is now available to companies to provide the strongest protection against Web-borne and PDF embedded threats.

Invincea™ Document Protection shields your organization from a primary attack pathway - weaponised PDF documents.

 

Invincea™ Document Protection builds off of the same techniques utilized to protect your highly targeted web browsers, shielding your users and your network against exploits embedded within PDF documents.

Containment: Because of its ubiquitous use, PDF has become a primary pathway for breach. Just like the web browser, Invincea takes this highly targeted application and seamlessly contains it in a fully virtualised environment. Running a virtual machine local to the desktop, Invincea creates a completely segregated operating system in which the PDF application operates. By creating this specialised virtual environment, Invincea contains all malware embedded within a PDF document - whether zero-day or known - and prevents it from attacking the host operating system as a pathway to breach and lateral movement in your network. 

Signature-Free Detection: Unlike other solutions, Invincea does not rely on malware signatures for detection. Instead, it automatically identifies malware attacks based on behaviours and actions inside the contained, controlled and segregated environment. As a result, Invincea can detect zero-day attacks in real-time and thwart those attacks with ease.

Prevention: Literally the second that malicious behaviour is identified, Invincea stops the attack dead in its tracks. An infection alert is provided to the user - but Invincea does not ask the user to make a security decision. Rather, we begin an automatic restoration process. During this restoration process, Invincea discards of the tainted virtual environment and completely rebuilds from a pristine, gold clean state. The process takes no longer than 20 seconds and the user is back up and ready to run the PDF reader without a call to help desk. Invincea eliminates the need for costly and time consuming desktop reimaging by preventing malware from ever taking root on the host.

Pre-Crime Forensic Intelligence: As the attack occurs, and during the restoration process, Invincea captures real-time forensic details related to the attempted breach. What was the infection pathway? Who was targeted? What did the malware intend to do? How was it written? What command and control channels were established? All of these questions are answered forensically for your security teams...and all of these questions are answered without the breach actually occurring. In this way, Invincea is changing the security paradigm from one of post-facto, crime scene analysis to one of pre-crimes intelligence. Your teams can gather all of the intel they need to inform their decision process moving forward without any detrimental impact to your organisation.

Easy to Use & Deploy: Invincea Document Protection provides a seamless and completely transparent user experience - they benefit from the same look and feel as Adobe Reader but PDFs are rendered in a secure, fully virtualised environment.
