Israeli Start-Up Claims It May Be Able to Stop All Viruses – David Shamah (Times of Israel)
Liran Tancman, CEO and co-founder of the Israeli start-up Cyactive, claims it may be able to put an end to viruses, malware, and trojan horses.
“Much of the code found in even major attacks is reused over and over again in new attacks,” Tancman said. “There has actually never been a virus that did not draw substantially on malware that was already in existence.”
Tancman, a former head of cyber-strategy in an elite IDF intelligence unit with a decade of experience in Israel’s intelligence corps, has developed “defenses against the core of the malware, the 98% of the code that is just a variant of existing malware.”
According to Yoav Tzruya, a member of Cyactive’s board, “What they are essentially doing is applying the principles of genetic computation to detect the next generation of viruses.”
