Nyotron, a provider of the industry’s first OS-Centric Positive Security solution to strengthen endpoint protection, is pleased to announce that PARANOID, has been nominated to compete in the 2019 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program
PARANOID represents the evolution of the traditional Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution into Endpoint Prevention and Response (EPR).
PARANOID is the only endpoint security solution to leverage OS-Centric Positive Security (aka dynamic behavior whitelisting) technology to deliver both precise visibility into a malicious activity that managed to bypass antivirus (AV) or NGAV defenses and the ability to prevent those threats from causing any damage.
(No disk scanning, no threat hunting, no signatures or machine learning. Nyotron’s approach is threat and application agnostic, providing defense-in-depth protection against the most advanced known and unknown attacks. See how. Courtesy of Nyotron and YouTube. Posted on Feb 3, 2019.)
Traditional EDR functions like a security video camera installed on users’ devices to monitor and capture every endpoint event. That comes with significant trade-offs.
First, the indiscriminate recording results in an overwhelming amount of data that impacts endpoint performance and bandwidth consumption.
Secondly, it forces most organizations to hire additional security analysts to regularly conduct threat hunting.
PARANOID solves both of those issues by protecting your data from deletion, exfiltration, encryption, sabotage and more, even if those threats bypass all other perimeter and endpoint security layers.
PARANOID leverages unique OS-Centric Positive Security approach that automatically whitelists trusted operating system behavior and rejects everything else.
This enables it to provide precise, relevant visibility into malicious activity, instead of an overwhelming stream of irrelevant events.
Moreover, PARANOID’s EPR protection is automatic and does not require manual threat hunting.
Nyotron’s approach is not just unique: it approaches the problem of cybersecurity from the exact opposite angle vs. the rest of the industry.
For three decades the security industry was focused on detecting the malicious activity by applying the Negative Security model.
However, “badness” is practically infinite, which makes it impossible to solve the problem of malware with high degree of confidence.
However, what is “good” is a much smaller, finite subset, especially if defined as the legitimate behavior of the operating system.
That’s why by leveraging the Positive Security model, Nyotron is able to achieve threat-agnostic, deterministic protection.

The primary value of Nyotron’s PARANOID is that it helps customers avoid data breaches and business continuity events (e.g. ransomware, wiper malware) that are obviously costly (especially for those in regulated industries) along with the reputation damage.
In cases involving Nyotron’s transportation, critical infrastructure, government, and law enforcement customers, PARANOID is responsible for the physical safety of the organization’s employees and customers.
PARANOID: Protects Your Endpoints and Your Data from Attacks Others Miss
One of the biggest cybersecurity challenges is differentiating between safe computer activity and malicious acts.
Traditional security defenses fall short on protecting you against advanced threats and targeted zero-day attacks.
Even so called “next gen” approaches such as machine learning, and artificial intelligence are limited in their ability to detect and prevent new, never-seen before and fileless malware threats.
Adding PARANOID to your endpoint security arsenal creates a stronger barrier against sophisticated nation-state attacks to help you win the war on malware.

PARANOID was tested and certified by ICSA Labs to meet Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) Criteria standards by detecting 100 percent of lesser-known and unknown threats.
ICSA Labs ATD testing was designed to test a solution’s ability to detect new and unknown threats that are typically missed by standard endpoint security solutions.
According to the ICSA Labs report, “The Nyotron PARANOID platform detected 100.0% of the threats it encountered during testing, considerably better than the percentage required for certification.”
