Symantec / WholeSecurity

Symantec Corp. today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire WholeSecurity, Inc., a leading provider of behavior-based security and anti-phishing technology. WholeSecurity's technology analyzes the characteristics and actions of viruses, worms and other malicious code to offer real-time protection against these threats without the need for traditional security signatures. The transaction is expected to close in October.

Behavior-based security technology identifies online threats such as worms, viruses, Trojan horses, keystroke loggers, and phishing sites by their actions and characteristics. WholeSecurity's Confidence Online analyzes the behavior exhibited by these threats against hundreds of detection modules to determine whether the active processes or web sites are safe or malicious. This technology can immediately detect and mitigate unknown threats by their behavior without traditional signatures or patches thereby protecting users against zero-day attacks.
