NeuShield Data Sentinel Protects Files and Data Against Ransomware and Advancing Cyberattacks

FREMONT, CA, July 10, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — After twelve months of intensive product development, NeuShield today exited from stealth with a completely revolutionary data protection product, NeuShield Data Sentinel. NeuShield’s patent-pending Mirror Shielding technology adds a much needed layer of data protection with a failsafe way to instantly recover files when other malware defenses, like antivirus and anti-ransomware, fail.

Today’s ransomware variants are so sophisticated that once a machine is infected, it can be near impossible to get encrypted files back without paying the ransom. Commonly used endpoint security software, which depend on signatures and updates, were not built to defend against this type of threat. According to FireEye, “…in 100 percent of the breaches to which [they] responded… firewalls and antivirus protections were up to date.” Attackers simply avoid detection by changing the predictable characteristics of ransomware—slowing down or randomizing encryption or lying dormant. Even the most advanced antivirus and anti-ransomware solutions cannot protect against Fully UnDetectable (FUD) threats that were conceived by cyber criminals to directly evade existing security layers and to harm data.

“At NeuShield we have taken a completely revolutionary approach to data protection. Rather than trying to detect and block threats one-by-one, our patent pending approach shields important data to prevent threats from modifying it,” said Elisha Riedlinger, COO, NeuShield. “This allows users to instantly recover data from any known, unknown or zero-day threat. Because we are protecting the data rather than trying to find specific threats, we can do this without requiring continuous updates and without signatures.”

NeuShield is led by a seasoned team of innovators and technologists with in-depth experience delivering some of the top endpoint security products on the market. The team’s collective experience includes key roles at FireEye, Google, Websense, Symantec and Sygate. Drawing upon their technology expertise and in-depth understanding of the threat landscape as well as weaknesses in existing security solutions, the team is well positioned to deliver the innovations consumers and businesses need to protect their data from constantly evolving threat vectors.

Reliable Protection from Ransomware
No matter how or why data was destroyed, NeuShield works at the file system layer to restore corrupted files or data back to their original state. Using patent-pending Mirror Shielding technology which uses Data Engrams, NeuShield creates a protective shield between system files and applications. If malicious code makes any modifications to a file, the original copy stays intact—allowing users to quickly undo any undesired changes with a simple click of the mouse. In addition, multiple revisions of the file are stored using Data Engrams allowing users to go back to previous versions. NeuShield’s groundbreaking technology doesn’t require a backup procedure, so there is virtually no impact on device performance.

“At CREC we use NeuShield Data Sentinel to protect student lab computers,” said Ju Gin, Principle, CREC school. “We especially like the ability of Data Sentinel to keep our student’s data protected against cyberthreats, which allows us to focus on teaching.”
