Reinvent endpoint cybersecurity with AppGuard, a subsidiary of Blue Planet-works Inc.

Companies worldwide struggle with daily security breaches, costing them billions of dollars. It’s become all too obvious that the familiar names in cybersecurity can no longer be trusted. Traditional Antivirus, or any type of “machine learning” or “A/I learning” are fatally flawed, based on practices that never worked.

AppGuard is the only security product in the marketplace that is currently undefeated. Protecting the operating system through kernel level policy enforcement AppGuard’s patented technology works for both large and small corporate businesses as well as individual consumers.


Award-winning laptop, desktop, and server protection for enterprises. AppGuard prevents breaches by blocking applications from performing inappropriate processes, but allows them to continue performing normal actions, using our patented dynamic isolation and inheritance technologies. By applying zero trust principles WITHIN endpoints, AppGuard delivers the most advanced protection and lowers cyber operation costs.

Prevent All Known And Unknown Attacks

AppGuard’s adaptive policy enforcement (APE) prevents viruses, fileless malware, botnets, polymorphic malware, weaponized documents, targeted attacks, in-memory attacks, ransomware, phishing, watering-holes, drive-by-downloads, and other advanced threats. AppGuard doesn’t rely on scanning known signatures or patterns to identify good from bad files. AppGuard’s lightweight agent sits low at the kernel level and blocks unacceptable actions like code injection or registry override at the process level.
