Justin Rattner told Computerworld on Tuesday that Intel is working on new security technology that will “stop all zero-day attacks”. This is a pretty big claim. While he would provide few details, he hopes the new technology will be ready for release this year.
“We’ve found a new approach that stops the most virulent attacks. It will stop zero-day scenarios. Even if we’ve never seen it, we can stop it dead in its tracks” .
Anyone attending last might’s TASK meeting would have heard Dennis Meharchand’s discussion of Endpoint Security, regarding a product that local Toronto firm, VALTx is promoting that claims to do the same. I have not examined or validated any of his claims, but he did offer some compelling discussion points.
