SafeGuard Cyber Adds Advanced Malware Protection To Its Enterprise Platform
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia, June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

-- New Capability Provides Improved Threat Visibility Across Social Platforms, 
Advanced Defense, and Extended Protection

SafeGuard Cyber( 
), the only SaaS platform dedicated to managing the full lifecycle of digital 
risk protection driving digital communications, today announced the release of 
new capabilities within its flagship collaboration, chat, and social media 
security platform. SafeGuard 7.6 now performs threat analysis on managed social 
and digital accounts to detect and remediate malware, including zero day 
exploits and associated messaging, file attachments, and links that are shared 
on these channels. 

Rapid adoption of social collaboration channels, coupled with the quick 
migration to work-from-home during the COVID pandemic, has created a broad 
attack surface with huge risk exposure. Social, mobile chat & digital channels 
are subject to malware-based attacks, such as spear-phishing, ransomware, and 
APT cyber-espionage attacks, and are proving to be a more vulnerable attack 
vector compared to email. The fact that these vulnerabilities have captured the 
attention of cybercriminals and nation-state actors has created a 'perfect 
storm' for which immediate preventative countermeasures are needed. 

SafeGuard Cyber is the only solution proven to systematically secure a 
comprehensive set of social, mobile chat, and digital collaboration channels 
against malware attacks. This addition to the platform automatically scans file 
attachments and links for malware and zero-day exploits. Sandboxing features 
force execution of all possible malware code paths without exposing the 
enterprise to risk, thus increasing the probability of detecting and stopping 
evasive zero-day attacks.

The benefits of threat analysis within SafeGuard Cyber 7.6 include: 

  1. Improved visibility. Threat activity occurring within messaging across 50+ 
social and digital channels including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and 
LinkedIn; mobile apps like WhatsApp, and collaboration tools such as Slack, 
Microsoft Teams and Salesforce. 

  2. Advanced Defense. SafeGuard Cyber takes immediate action to quarantine 
files and links associated with malware indicators of compromise and stop these 
attacks before they can spread to other accounts or propagate to physical 

  3. Extended Protection. SafeGuard Cyber 7.6 improves the security posture of 
the enterprise by extending digital risk protection and alert notifications on 
malware attacks to EDRs, SIEMs, SOCs for attack correlation and comprehensive 
threat response.

"In just a few short months the world flipped on its axis, forcing 
organizations globally to rethink their entire digital security posture amidst 
the abrupt shift to remote work, which has unfortunately opened a Pandora's Box 
of new cyber threats from malicious and state actors," stated Otavio Freire, 
Co-Founder & CTO of SafeGuard Cyber. "We're proud to be able to help our 
customers enable business continuity in this 'new normal', while fortifying 
these growing digital collaboration and social channels against malware, 
ransomware and other threats."
