Pune-based IT security and data protection solutions company, Quick Heal Technologies, has secured a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its ‘Signatureless Behaviour-based Detection Technology’ that detects known and unknown malware on a real-time basis.

These malware cannot be detected using traditional threat detection methods. The Quick Heal solution dynamically detects and remediates malware using code-injection at run-time and at the targeted device — with precision and without hampering the user experience. This allows it to address the challenge of sourcing the raw data required for detecting zero-day attacks. Zero-day malware typically target newer vulnerabilities which are yet to be identified or patched.

Seqrite, the enterprise arm of Quick Heal, has already made these a part of its enterprise security offerings. The Behaviour-based Detection Technology is part of Seqrite’s GoDeep.AI framework, an indigenously-developed AI-based threat hunting engine, that proactively identifies and eliminates known and unknown threats in the global threat landscape.
