Benefit from multiple techniques to block malware​

GravityZone monitors running processes in real-time such as registry key modifications, file access, unexpected encryption, and more, to identify suspicious or malicious processes for automatic or manual termination by security teams.​

Trained machine learning blocks ransomware exploits that arrive through network ingress points, halting malicious activity in the initial access, credential access, discovery, and lateral movement attack stages.​
