Intercept X’s new early access program (EAP) with Anti-Malware Scanning Interface Protection (AMSI) and Malicious Network Traffic Protection (IPS) to Windows endpoints and servers strengthens security. Intercept X announced the new EAP at the end of October. It’s usable as a trial version now.
The new EAP is coming on the end of October
A Microsoft interface AMSI, designed to run on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 and later versions, allows scanning of script files, even when obfuscated, as well as .NET 4.8 assemblies. AMSI focuses on essentially detecting and blocking attacks based on Obfuscated PowerShell scripts.
The other new feature that came with EAP is Malicious Network Traffic Protection. That is also known as Prevention System (IPS). It scans inbound and outbound traffic for detecting and blocking cyberattack patterns. It’s outbound traffic scanning feature provides increased security while working on different internet access with no firewall protection. When a threat is detected, IPS stops it dead in its tracks.
Intercept X Advanced uses deep learning techniques on endpoint threat detection and response technologies. It aims to deliver protection against unknown malware, exploits, and ransomware. Endpoint and server security is strengthened with EAP. The EAP is now open and available to try for everyone using Intercept X Advanced and Central Endpoint Protection.
