ZeroVulnerabilityLabs Announces ExploitShield Beta

Compatible with existing antivirus and Internet security solutions

San Jose, California. September 28, 2012. ZeroVulnerabilityLabs, Inc., the vulnerability prevention specialist, today announced availability of ExploitShield Browser Edition beta. This new model of security software proactively shields software applications from zero-day vulnerabilities, malware infections from exploit kits such as Blackhole and the vast majority of web-based vulnerability exploits. During alpha testing ExploitShield Browser Edition has proactively blocked three different Internet Explorer zero-day and various Java zero-day vulnerabilities the same day they were disclosed and weeks before patches were made available.

ExploitShield Browser Edition is free for home users and non-profit organizations. It is an install-and-forget security solution that includes all protections needed to prevent drive-by download infections and zero-day vulnerability attacks. These type of attacks are used as common infection vectors for financial malware, ransomware, rogue antivirus and other types of sophisticated malware not commonly detected by traditional blacklisting antivirus products until it is too late.

ExploitShield Browser Edition beta is available now for Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP and can be downloaded from http://www.zerovulnerabilitylabs.com.

Application Shielding Technology

ExploitShield effectively protects users where traditional security products fail. After researching thousands of vulnerability exploits ZeroVulnerabilityLabs has developed an innovative patent-pending technology that is able to protect applications from malicious vulnerability exploits without relying on blacklisting, whitelisting or sandboxing. By preventing the most dangerous phase of a vulnerability exploit, the execution of malicious code, ExploitShield can protect against all known and unknown zero-day arbitrary code execution vulnerability exploit attacks in a simple to use, install-and-forget endpoint security solution. Videos of ExploitShield in action against a large variety of exploits can be viewed at http://www.zerovulnerabilitylabs.com/home/technology/success-stories-videos/.
