RevBits Detection and Response Engine Blocks All Exploits Before the Attack Chain Begins
The idea behind a home security system is to deter break-ins and subsequent theft and malicious damage. We hope the ear-shattering alarm and implied promise of police intervention will be enough to cause criminals to flee before entering. Unfortunately, regardless of protective measures, many savvy thieves can breach your system and inflict a great deal of loss and harm in a short time and still evade authorities.
What is an exploit?
In everyday vernacular, an exploit is using or taking advantage of something or someone for one’s own purposes or advantage. In cybercrime, it is malicious software that executes a denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, enables malware to enter into an application, file, web page or computer system, and other types of attacks. Another form of exploit is executing a small piece of code, called a shellcode, to release a sequence of commands to take over control and install the malware. Cyber attackers often go after the most used and popular software and apps, like Microsoft Office apps and web browsers.
Most anti-virus and even nextgen endpoint security solutions allow exploits to enter and then rely on their ability to detect the injected malware and deploy a mitigation process. Would you rather leave your home vulnerable to burglars and rely upon your ability to protect your assets and safely remove the criminals or prevent any exploitive entry from occurring in the first place?
RevBits detection and response engine slams the door on exploits
Phoenix is RevBits powerful, feature-rich exploit detection and response engine within our endpoint security solution: RevBits EPS/EDR. It prevents breaches by blocking known and zero-day exploits before a shellcode or payload can be executed or the attack chain can begin. RevBits detects, blocks and kills any type of shellcode execution process before it can run. RevBits exploit detection and response engine is unique in how it possesses both exploit and malware detection capabilities.
RevBits detection engine monitors all endpoints and collects data in a centralized repository where it can be analyzed and acted upon quickly. Every attack is reported through RevBits Endpoint Security & EDR (EPS/EDR) console or RevBits Cyber Intelligence Platform (CIP) dashboard.
RevBits detection and response engine key attributes and features
- Protects against Remote Code Execution (RCE) and Local Privilege Escalation (LPE) threats
- Blocks all exploits before execution
- Never creates false positives and will not crash applications
- Protects legacy and custom applications
Cyber attacks are increasingly more difficult to discover, and to prevent a catastrophic breach, cyber threats should not be tolerated at any point in the attack chain. They must be eliminated at point zero - at the exploit - before they are allowed to drop their malware. RevBits delivers that protection.

Most homeowners have had to deal with a pest problem at some point. In addition to the mess their intrusion may create, they can also cause a great deal of damage. Trying to determine their access point can be a tricky endeavor. You can attempt any number of lures and traps; sometimes with success. But the truly insidious and elusive pest will require the services of an expert.
When it comes to cybersecurity, different tactics emerge on a daily basis, which can make it difficult to keep up with current trends. Sandboxing and honeypot security are two cybersecurity tactics that are constantly evolving but can be confused. These two technologies are quite different and both offer valuable solutions to various cybersecurity issues. By understanding the differences in these two technologies, businesses can be sure they have the right solution for their cybersecurity needs.
Cyber attacks have been on the rise for the past five years and traditional, passive defenses are no longer enough to protect businesses and enterprises. Many companies are pairing defensive and offensive cybersecurity approaches and are implementing measures like honeypots and deception technologies to protect against future attacks.
