Mu Security Leverages "Adaptive Analysis" for Security

Mu Security introduced a dynamic protocol mutation technology known as Adaptive Analysis that allows product developers and their service provider or critical infrastructure customers to broadly analyze any IPv4- or IPv6-based product's attack surface for its security readiness and robustness.

Adaptive Analysis customizes the company's Mu-4000 Security Analyzer platform to pinpoint and expedite the remediation of potential 0-day and published vulnerabilities in wired and wireless infrastructures, carrier networks and government applications. The solution combines hundreds of protocol attack mutations dynamically using a large number of authentication techniques running over a dozen transport options.

Mu Security said its Adaptive Analysis approach enables service providers and vendors of security appliances, secure storage systems, triple play provisioning products and consumer point-of-sale products to proactively analyze their unique attack surfaces and remediate a wide range of potentially disruptive vulnerabilities or robustness flaws.

Mu Security customer installations include Veraz, Juniper Networks, Network Appliance/Decru, Motorola, ConSentry as well as a number of undisclosed service provider end users and government agencies. During Mu Security's development, the company also isolated dozens of 0-day vulnerabilities including the open source Asterisk IP-PBX offering to identify and quickly remediate a new 0-day VoIP vulnerability.
