OnSystem Logic Awarded Highly Competitive Grant from the National Science Foundation to Pursue Its Solution to Malicious Malware
OnSystem Logic has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to conduct continuing research and development (R&D) work on its OnSystem Defender – an application hardening and security assurance product providing the best available protection against harmful malware and application flaws.
SolarWinds acknowledged that hackers had inserted malware into a service that provided software updates (“patches”) for its Orion platform, a suite of products broadly used across the U.S. federal government and Fortune 500 firms to monitor the health of their IT networks. The hacking operation began at least as early as March when SolarWinds customers who installed updates to their Orion software were unknowingly welcoming hidden malicious code that could give intruders the same view of their corporate network that in-house IT crews have.
Microsoft’s “Emergency Software Patches” Reveal the Absolute Inadequacy of Traditional and Nextgen Anti-virus and Endpoint Security Products.
Onsystem Defender enables application self-defense to protect infrastructure even when anti-virus and other endpoint security products fail.
Fortunately, OnSystem Logic (www.onsystemlogic.com) has brought to market the only product I have come across that is explicitly designed to STOP this rapidly growing class of malware attacks.
