Research Institution
The market for products that monitor and detect malicious code will gain considerable traction as more organizations try to protect their computer systems from ever increasing attacks. Avenda Systems proposes a behavior based malicious logic monitoring and detection system called the Malicious Application Behavior Analysis System (MABAS) that is application and platform independent with a low performance impact. The system consists of tools and techniques that insert software behavior monitoring and control mechanisms into an application to detect inappropriate behavior. This is currently a feature gap in solutions that target malicious code. Avenda Systems has the expertise to develop a practical and highly effective behavior based logic monitoring and detection system. Organizations, both military and civilian enterprises, can use this system to defend their computer systems against attacks. The technologies employed in this product are practical and innovative and have not been implemented in commercially available comparable products. Prototype development in Phase I will provide the knowledge and foundation for building a complete product in Phase II, and a commercially viable product in Phase III.
