GamaSec, a Herzliyah-based Security as a Service (SaaS) company has launched GamaWare, a new cloud-based malware scanner that is designed to deeply penetrate corporate websites and identify suspicious and/or malicious URLs, detect encoded JS/HTML/PDF threats, JS obfuscation techniques, encrypted binary shell codes, Iframes and external links.
The launch of the new product coincides with the establishment of U.S. operations of the Israeli tech company.
Los Angeles-based US Operations
GamaSec has turned its attention to the U.S. market with the establishment of a new U.S. operation through a long-term partnership agreement with QuatraShield, a security solutions company headquartered in Los Angeles.
QuatraShield’s flagship product, the QuatraScan V3000 Vulnerability Application Scanner, is actually GamaSec’s flagship technology which uses an advanced artificial intelligence platform to scan corporate websites to detect application vulnerabilities and malware. And GamaSec’s GamaWare product is called QuatraWare M3000 in the product proposition of QuatraShield.
Local US sales and services
“One the key differentiators between the GamaWare technology and many of the off-the-shelf products is the reliance on heuristic and non-signature based detection,” said CEO and co-founder of GamaSec, Avi Bartov. “Our proprietary cloud-based software enables companies of all sizes to detect malware that many of the traditional scanners miss.”
“Without a strong U.S. operation, there was a hesitancy on the part of some companies when it came to closing contracts,” Bartov added. “In my opinion, establishing a US based operation that provides full product support is the best model for an Israeli technology company. We can now combine the best of Israeli cyber innovation combined with local US sales and customer service.”
