General Dynamics‘ Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions unit has rolled out a suite of new offerings designed to help enterprises identify and block malware hiding in PDF files, e-mails, instant messages and social networks.
Fidelis XPS Vector is intended to protect computer networks against both common and targeted malicious software programs, according to a General Dynamics statement.
“We developed Fidelis XPS Vector to help customers target inbound malware, a tactic that is increasingly being used to attack enterprises,“ said Tom Lyons, vice president of product management at General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions.
The product works by looking through hundreds of inbound objects per second and targeting malicious content in sessions.
It is also intended to alert security practitioners and provide details of the source, protocol, decoding path, compression and forensic information.
Vector has an integrated management console and network sensor, which begins identifying inbound malware upon installation and does not require any configuration.
General Dynamics says the new suite utilizes the deep session inspection platform, designed for the control of cyber threats.
