Invincea Brings Virtual Container Protection to Small Businesses

Invincea, a provider of endpoint security solutions that leverage secure virtual containers to protect against advanced malware and other threats, this week announced the launch of Invincea FreeSpace for Small Business, an endpoint security solution targeted to the highly vulnerable yet underserved small business market.

Invincea, a provider of endpoint security solutions that leverage secure virtual containers to protect against advanced malware and other threats, this week announced the launch of Invincea FreeSpace for Small Business, an endpoint security solution targeted to the highly vulnerable yet underserved small business market.

According to the company, Invincea FreeSpace for Small Business protects customers from targeted and unknown malware as well as common cyber-crime exploit kits by moving web-browsers, PDF readers and Office applications into secure virtual containers outfitted with advanced behavioral sensors for malware detection.

Invincea Logo“Unlike traditional anti-virus solutions, which require prior knowledge of attacks, and are therefore easily bypassed by current and future attacks, Invincea FreeSpace for Small Business relies on a strategy of virtual containers and behavioral-based detection — making it possible to protect against targeted and conventional threats directed at end users, including zero-day exploits and unknown malware,” the company explained.

Businesses with fewer than 250 employees can purchase the solution directly online and provision systems through a cloud-based interface which also provides client management and threat reporting.

“[Invincea FreeSpace for Small Business] provides small businesses with the same advanced threat protection technology that is defending our large enterprise clients against advanced attacks and zero-day exploits,” said Anup Ghosh, Founder and CEO of Invincea. “Our cloud-hosted management makes managing these endpoint clients simple and cost effective.”

“While the large enterprise segment is prized by both adversaries and security companies, the small business sector is increasingly a favored soft target for cyber exploits,” Ghosh said. “Lack of access to advanced security technology common to larger enterprises makes the small business sector an easy target to exploit. This is fertile ground for innovation, and as such, makes an ideal target for Intellectual Property theft in some cases, and cyber-crime in others.”

In June 2013, Invincea announced an OEM partnership with Dell under which the PC maker would ship systems with Invincea technology installed straight from the factory on all commercial systems including its Precision, Latitude and Optiplex machines. Dell will include Invincea’s software on more than 60 million devices globally over the next three years, Invincea said.

The venture capital-backed company was founded by Dr. Anup Ghosh and has commercialized technology originally built under DARPA funding. 

Pricing for Invincea FreeSpace for Small Business starts at $79.99 per year for a single-user subscription.
