Minerva Labs

Founded: 2014 

Founders: Eddy Bobritsky, Erez Breiman, Omri Moyal 

Products/Services: endpoint security  

Claims to Fame: Minerva Labs claims to bring a new paradigm to malware detection by 'preventing malware execution by using the malware's strengths against it.' The premise: many pieces of malware today are delivered in 'packers' and use evasion techniques -- only unpacking when they determine that the environment is improperly secured and that it's safe for the malware to come out. As it says on Minerva's website: 'Minerva's Environment Simulation Technology is built upon a simple premise. As the malware does not unpack or run the code in an environment that appears unsuitable, we can simulate such an environment and prevent the malware from executing.'
