- San Antonio-based cybersecurity startup Infocyte announced the release of a malware hunting software for companies.
- The product, called Pulse, provides companies a proactive way to hunt for breaches on their networks.
- The software searches for signs of hacker activity across computers and on-premise servers. By detecting malware on a network, the goal is to prevent security breaches on a larger scale.
Most companies use installed malware detection software to detect issues. But rather than downloading Pulse, companies subscribe to the service. The product checks devices for all non-variants of malware that exist on systems that might be compromised as well as unknown software that may be acting like malware, said Christopher Gerritz, chief executive officer and co-founder of Infocyte, in an interview with the San Antonio Business Journal.
No company wants to be the victim of a large-scale data breach that could expose the information of its customers and potentially harm its business productivity. Business stakeholders will try and find a solution that can best maintain their network's security.
Malware can affect any number of places. A recent study found that mobile business users are the most vulnerable to malware, with 79% of businessmen and 67% of businesswomen use risky apps every day.
