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.
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.
