20 Hot New Security Products Announced At RSA 2018
Virsec Trusted Execution
Virsec Trusted Execution protects applications against microcode attacks such as Spectre and Meltdown without requiring changes to the application code, operating system patches or microcode updates.
Unlike recently released patches that effectively turn off speculative execution, Virsec Trusted Execution does not incur significant performance degradation. It also does not require recompiling of application source code, which can be impractical for organizations with complex software stacks.
Virsec Trusted Execution detects vulnerable code and proactively puts fences in place to prevent side-channel exposure caused by speculative execution. Unlike other products that use static analysis to find vulnerable code and then require rewrites, Virsec detects and protects code as is in real-time. Because this is done selectively, it has negligible impact on overall performance.
