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.
Protects you when you cannot or choose not to patch.
Mitigates known and unknown memory-based exploits.
No impact to runtime overhead and no changes to existing processes or interoperability.
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.
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.

“Moving to that stable cadence for patching has given us a 30 to 40 percent benefit in terms of optimization and efficiency around our workflows.”

“I will sleep easier at night with the knowledge that PlayNetwork's critical infrastructure and network of devices in the field are protected by Polyverse's Polymorphing solution and supported by the Polyverse team of experts.”
— Josh Thomas | SVP of Technology
"Our collaboration has proven one of the world’s most cyber-resilient Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) platforms available today; we call it “Micro Focus ArcSight on Polyverse.” Combining full stack security from the kernel up through the application, using a combination of Polymorphing and fortifying the application life cycle, Micro Focus will be able to support our sensitive-mission customers with a powerful and now cyber-resilient SIEM."

"Polyverse is hands down the highest ROI cybersecurity tool on the market. With a one-click, “fire and forget” installation process, Polyverse eliminates 100% of memory based cyber-attacks. There is nothing easier or more effective to protect your systems from remote cyberattacks."
— Paul Weidow | President/Founder
"Polyverse is recognized for creating unprecedented resilience against cyberattacks by making the software on every computer unique and diverse. Polyverse’s ability to eliminate zero days, employ Polymorphing, and eliminate code-injection with polyscripting makes the company a leader in preventative cybersecurity. Polyverse makes each operating system instance unique at a memory and stack level, which means the attacker’s investment in hacking the first operating system cannot be applied to the next. This technology breaks the economic model of malicious hacking at its core."

"We see the sophistication of attacks generally increasing, including the use of memory-based and fileless techniques. From a defense perspective, it’s usually better to look at ways of mitigating the impact of broad attack classes rather than focusing on individual attacks. With that in mind, we see approaches such as Polymorphing as an interesting avenue of defense for organizations to consider as they deploy security across their environments."
