Security products generally attempt to prevent malware infections by inspecting incoming code, scripts and other content. RedSocks, however, uses a different approach: RedSocks Malicious Threat Detection (MTD) focuses on the communication characteristics of malware that has installed itself on your devices. This method provides instant notification whenever a device becomes infected. Whereas other security products have difficulty cleansing existing environments, RedSocks MTD placed in a new environment will effortlessly detect malware that has been present for days, weeks or even months.
Blind Spot in Security
A differentiating aspect of the RedSocks approach is that the MTD monitors outbound network traffic for malicious characteristics. This approach di ers from the traditional security, which typically only checks inbound network traffic. A firewall, for instance, approves inbound traffic by matching it with an earlier outbound request. An anti-virus product approves inbound traffic on content. Both of these methods, however, have blind spots due to their sole reliance on inbound traffic monitoring.
Outbound network traffic will always reveal in what way, by what volume, to what country and how frequent client devices are in contact with destinations on the Internet (i.e., always detect malware activity).
RedSocks MTD is meant to act alongside your existing security measures and acts as a complementary safeguard that is capable of covering the blind spots that traditional tools do not monitor.
When traditional solutions fail, RedSocks MTD will be there to defend your system.
