About Memory Firewall
The Determina Memory Firewall is the result of years of groundbreaking
research at MIT done by Determina co-founders Saman Amarasinghe, Derek
Bruening, and Vladimir Kiriansky. The Determina Memory Firewall(TM) is the
first technology that proactively blocks malicious computer attacks,
preventing even a single unintended line of code from executing, and without
false positives. Determina utilizes unique patent-pending technology which
blocks attacks at the most fundamental level, by dynamically building a
protective shield around programs while they run in computer memory. This
groundbreaking approach has proven to be effective against all memory-based
attacks -- such as Code Red, Blaster, Slammer and Sasser -- without false
positives or ongoing overhead. Memory-based vulnerabilities represent by far
the largest class of flaws in computer software, and nearly all of the most
critical ones. Determina Memory Firewall is available today and being used by
enterprise customers in industries demanding the highest level of availability
such as manufacturing and financial services.
