StormShield: A New Security Tool to Block Malware

NEC Computers has introduced a new security tool to defend PCs against malware by analysing application behaviour and blocking unauthorised actions.

The software is designed to provide firms with an extra layer of protection, rather than replace other security products such as antivirus tools, NEC said. StormShield, available immediately, learns the behaviour of applications on a user's computer and then issues a warning if any unusual action is attempted. This allows firms to adopt a more proactive approach to security, according to NEC. Malware blocker checks behaviour - IT Week
