Morphisec Announces Free Unified Threat Prevention Platform Licensing for Work From Home Employees During COVID-19 Response

BEERSHEBA, Israel and BOSTON, March 23, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Morphisec, the leader in Advanced Threat Prevention, today announced that its Unified Threat Prevention platform is free to license for enterprise work-from-home employees during the COVID-19 response. The Coronavirus pandemic has shifted the way the world works, forcing companies into having a fully remote workforce faster than anyone could have predicted. To help enterprises secure their rapidly evolving remote workforce during these unprecedented times, Morphisec is making its automatic and deterministic prevention of in-memory attacks and evasive malware, free for remote employees through June 1.

"The COVID-19 outbreak has shifted the way the world works, forcing companies into having a fully remote workforce at a pace that would stretch even the best IT team," said Ronen Yehoshua, CEO at Morphisec. "CISOs and cybersecurity professionals are struggling to adjust to these unprecedented times, and Morphisec is answering the call to ensure endpoints, and ultimately mission-critical memory, can be defended in this radically altered environment. Making Morphisec available to license for free for remote workers will allow organizations to quickly adjust to the situation and ensure they address the cybersecurity vulnerabilities that inherently come with having an entirely distributed workforce."

As workforces adjust to the new reality of working from home, employees are subjected to a dramatically less secure environment and unreliable WiFi networks. Both traditional antivirus and EDR tools depend on network connectivity, which limits their overall effectiveness in this environment. Morphisec's approach to endpoint protection is ideal for remote workforces as it doesn't rely on connectivity or analysts in order to prevent advanced threats. Instead, its Moving Target Defense technology perpetually hides key memory from attacks without the need to recognize threats. It creates confusion for attackers by scrambling the locations of .dlls, memory structures, and commonly used resources. Authorized programs such as browsers and email attachments remote workers rely on function normally without any business disruption.

The Morphisec Unified Threat Prevention Platform utilizes Moving Target Defense technology to prevent advanced threats without generating alerts to chase, impacting system performance, or impeding business operations. It is highly effective against blocking unknown threats and for organizations looking to instantly secure their workforce with no operational maintenance. With free licensing of the Unified Threat Prevention Platform, enterprise remote workforces will receive:

    --  Protection of remote employees against the most dangerous advanced
        threats including fileless attacks, evasive malware, in-memory exploits
        and zero-days
    --  Integration with Windows Defender AV through Morphisec's partnership
        with Microsoft for bulletproof Windows 10 security
    --  Immediate installation with no reboot, configuration or tuning required
    --  Zero-touch maintenance and full offline protection without requiring
        home connectivity for heavy signature or patch updates
    --  No CPU performance impact to home computers or Virtual Desktop
        Infrastructure (VDI)
    --  Business continuity that automatically locks down attacks through
        instant hardening of remote computers and VDI instances
    --  Prevention of browser-based attacks to ensure remote employees can
        securely access the SaaS solutions they need

"Like the rest of the world, the business world needs to come together in battling the coronavirus pandemic," added Yehoshua. "Organizations navigating this new territory must rest assured their critical assets are secured against advanced threats that are targeting them at their most vulnerable state. Morphisec is committed to securing enterprises of all sizes so they can stay focused on maneuvering through this crisis and ensuring the health of their employees."
