Ukrainian software VAD Softprom and AppGuard, the global leader in server and endpoint security, have announced the signing of a distribution agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Softprom will support the distribution and promotion of AppGuard products in Europe, with a focus on Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine, Czech Republic and Switzerland, through Softprom office in Austria.
The comprehensive protection of the operating system through the application of kernel-level policies makes the patented AppGuard technology compatible for both large and small businesses and individual consumers.
"AppGuard prevents attacks by preventing applications from running malicious processes, but allows them to continue to perform normal actions using proprietary dynamic isolation and inheritance technologies. AppGuard applies zero-trust principles within endpoints, providing the most advanced protection and reducing operational costs for cyber security", said Pavlo Zhdanovich, managing director of Softprom.
AppGuard Adaptive Policy Enforcement (APE) blocks viruses, file-less malware, botnets, polymorphic malware, Trojans, targeted attacks, in-memory attacks, ransomware, phishing, crashes, disk downloads, and other advanced threats. AppGuard does not rely on scanning for known signatures or patterns to identify the good and bad files. The lightweight AppGuard agent resides at a low kernel level and blocks inappropriate actions such as code injection or registry overwrites at the process level.
"We are very excited to work with Softprom and expand our reach across Europe. With Softprom's broad reach and technical understanding, we see a very bright future providing the best preventive approach to securing workstations and servers across the Softprom partner ecosystem", said Maitland Muse, Executive Vice President, Global Channels and Alliances for AppGuard.
