PolySwarm Welcomes Trustlook Malware Detection And Xvirus Scanning Engine To Network
Trustlook And Xvirus Join The PolySwarm Network To Decentralize The Existing Threat Landscape
PolySwarm, a lead decentralized threat intelligence marketplace, has announced a second partnership with anti-threat detection firms, Xvirus and Trustlook. The increased collaboration was published on two separate occasions with each aiming to advance the ecosystem's quality detection and integrate malware detection engines into the PolySwarm network.
Partnership With Trustlook
Trustlook SECURE has become a global leader in revolutionizing network-level detection, and the collaboration with PolySwarm adds the emphasis of replacing old solutions. Its original engine boasts of a 98 percent success rate in malware detection, with a cloud response of over 3 seconds.
The partnership with PolySwarm would see Trustlook expand its crowd-sourced and open threat ecosystem to encompass more anti-malware engines. Resultantly, this would enable the generation of passive income from protecting enterprises with an accurate threat detection system. Also, firms will get exclusive access to a database of malware samples to help them tailor their products with the necessary security.
Trustlook's CEO Allan Zhang explains,
“As malware attacks continue to grow, PolySwarm's decentralized platform would provide a new way to protect the internet. Trustlook is happy to support PolySwarm's growth, with our advanced ability in zero-day attack protection and detection.”
Partnership With Xvirus
Earlier in November, PolySwarm also took time to announce the collaboration with the anti-malware tool, Xvirus. Unlike most anti-virus solution, Xvirus offers a complete pack that blocks threats that even your anti-virus solution cannot detect.
The partnership with PolySwarm will have Xvirus integrate their malware detection engine into the anti-malware network. The Xvirus Scanning Engine is the primary protection tool in use, and its design allows users' computers to keep various threats and infections at bay. It is available in CLI and SDK designs, making it quite light and effective in improving the detection rate of already existing products.
Dani Santos, a lead engineer with Xvirus, emphasizes the importance that comes with using the PolySwarm network to cover threats against enterprises.
“PolySwarm's prediction market is one of the most novel ideas we've seen in the threat intelligence space. We are excited to participate in this new economy powered by blockchain where the best performers get paid to protect users.”
PolySwarm's CEO, Steve Bassi, also expressed the pleasure of joining forces with the Xvirus platform to combat cybersecurity threats.
“We are excited to have Xvirus join the growing network of PolySwarm's threat micro-engines. As the number of powerful security engines in PolySwarm's network expands, so does the coverage against threats, ensuring enterprises are properly fortified against evolving malware.”
Trustlook offers next-generation security products based on artificial intelligence and now, blockchain. The platform’s existing SECUREai engine provides performance and scalability necessary for detection and protection against malware and other forms of malicious attacks.
The Xvirus project started in 2010 with the goal of providing easy to use but powerful security products to help users protect, clean and keep their computers performing at a top level. The Xvirus Anti-Malware is freeware software with an automatic virus database that updates on new strains of attacks.
