Deep Instinct’s Prevention for Applications detects malicious files in transit

Cybersecurity vendor Deep Instinct has announced the launch of Deep Instinct Prevention for Applications, a new antimalware software product that detects and stops malicious files in transit.

Prevention for Applications is deployed via a container within a customer’s environment and does not require cloud access, with device and system agnostic flexibility that allows it to be implemented to protect any application. It advances threat protection beyond the endpoint with in-transit file scanning via API.

Karen Crowley, Director of Product Solutions at Deep Instinct, tells CSO that PDF and Office files remain a large attack target as they are so widely used. “PDF documents can contain text, images, and codes that can be weaponized with hidden scripts that won’t be detected and endanger the organization,” she says. “These files could open a backdoor and allow cybercriminals to access devices and then pivot to other areas of the network.”
