About Digital Immunity
Digital Immunity’s offering DI PROTECT™ prevents the execution of malware attacks in memory at runtime. In line with a zero-trust architecture, DI PROTECT™ enforces the runtime integrity of trusted executing code on endpoint devices, hardening Windows based Operating Systems and related applications against vulnerabilities, file-less and file-based exploits, including ransomware and zero-day attacks. In the event of an attempted attack, or the attempted execution of un-trusted binary code, alerts are presented through rich forensics artifacts to security operators in the Digital Immunity (DI) Control Center. Protection is enforced by the lightweight DI Sensor that is loaded on endpoint devices (servers, workstations, and embedded devices) to monitor processes and prevent the execution of malicious or unauthorized binaries – with no interference to trusted processes ensuring uptime and continuous operation. DI PROTECT™ delivers trust-centric runtime integrity without taxing the performance of devices.
