VS2 Promises New Approach to Cyber Security

Virtual Software Systems (VS2), a stealth-mode start-up based in Waltham, Mass., said it is on track to unveil an entirely new approach to security based on the founders' expertise in systems architecture, design and development.

Set to demonstrate its groundbreaking technology in early 2015, VS2 will provide a missing piece of the puzzle in today's security infrastructure, filling the gap between current perimeter solutions (firewall, intrusion detection/prevention, anti-virus, etc.) and interior defenses such as encryption, which is currently the only method for protecting data following a perimeter breach.
To date, security companies have taken a traditional, defensive approach to protecting data and intellectual property assets.
"They've applied technologies and methodologies from the physical world to the virtual world – but the headlines tell us every day that this approach is incomplete," said VSPresident and CEO John Conway. "The mechanisms used by intruders to evade detection and trick perimeter defenses are infinite, so the key is to simplify and manage the attack surface from the inside of the computer. VS2 achieves this by rethinking security at the system design level, combining principles of fault tolerance with a new spatio-temporal architecture that virtually manipulates time and neutralizes attacks before they can become harmful exploits."
