PolySwarm partners with IKARUS Security Software to advance its early malware detection capabilities. IKARUS will assist PolySwarm in its efforts to expand its network of antivirus vendors and developers by uploading IKARUS’ engine into Polyswarm’s marketplace.
“The way PolySwarm compensates security companies for successfully detecting potential threats will pave the way to a new era in threat detection,” said Mario Bono, head of the malware lab at IKARUS. “The ability to access a vast stream of new malware samples that improve our products coupled with the ability to generate passive income is what drew us to PolySwarm’s marketplace.”
“IKARUS is a world leader in reinforcing and defending against malware, as it invests around 65 percent of the total turnover in software research and development in this space,” said PolySwarm CEO Steve Bassi. “Their commitment to continually finding new approaches and solutions to protect against the explosive growth of threats will help broaden our ability to identify issues across an ever-growing network of internet-connected devices.”
