Polymorphing

Stop attacks before they start

Polymorphing for Linux enables you to remain operationally flexible and decrease unplanned downtime.

Zero trust software defense for Linux

Today, enterprise IT teams juggle managing day-to-day operations and critical systems, while also providing new software and services for customers. Once a cybersecurity vulnerability is announced, these organizations have to decide whether to take their critical infrastructure offline to patch, or wait and run the risk of a security breach. At best these teams experience unplanned downtime that halts their operations, and at worst they lose sensitive customer data and trust.

Polymorphing is a zero-trust software solution that mitigates known and unknown memory-based exploits from the moment you install your operating system, before a vulnerability is announced and regardless of whether you (or we) know about it. This provides extreme system resilience, protecting you during those periods when you cannot or choose not to patch, or when a patch is unavailable or cannot be applied.

Polymorphing secures all major Linux distributions including end-of-life versions of Red Hat, Alpine, CentOS, Debian, Oracle Linux, Red Hat, SUSE, Ubuntu, and, if needed, custom builds.

How does Polymorphing make Linux more secure?

Polymorphing for Linux compiles, scrambles and serves hardened Linux distributions that are semantically equivalent to the original but also completely unique, mitigating known and unknown memory-based exploits from the moment you install the operating system. This is done by scrambling the instruction set at the binary level to ensure the security of each connected device without altering function, performance or operations of your OS. With Polymorphing in place, attackers can no longer escalate privilege to take over or encrypt your network.

Today, 60% of successful attacks occur on software for which a patch is available but not applied. Many organizations on a fixed schedule cannot patch immediately, which leaves them open to attack. Polymorphing provides system resilience, protecting you during those periods when you cannot or choose not to patch, or when a patch is unavailable or cannot be applied. Polymorphing also protects end-of-life versions of operating systems that no are longer supported or patched. With Polymorphing you can protect critical infrastructure and devices that can’t go offline for long periods of time.

  • Secures enterprise environments from large server deployments to IoT/embedded devices
  • Secures end-of-life versions and legacy software
  • Secures edge devices that cannot be easily updated
  • Secures organizations that are unable to patch regularly

Polymorphing provides protection from memory-based zero-day, code-execution and buffer-overflow attacks. It can be applied everywhere from embedded IoT and edge computing devices, to containerized cloud-native applications and datacenter environments. Polymorphing can be installed on Google Cloud, AWS or Microsoft Azure.

Among common vulnerabilities and exploits (CVEs), memory-exploiting zero-day attacks are the most difficult to defend against and make up 70% of all CVEs. These attacks are not detected by traditional cybersecurity solutions, which rely on patching to mitigate.
