Bout time someone got some real security

August 8, 2008


So a company local to my area has a product that gets below the OS to start monitoring and SNUFFin out some of the malware out there.  Hypervista Technologies is a startup that has a lot of really good features in the Hypervisor security solutions space.  This is the future, especially when tied to and hooked to Type 1 hardware based optimization in platforms. 

These technologies are also sort of related to efforts around Extensible Firmware Interface technology that in my opinion allows for a TON of security research for malware purposes.  Ability to run code and script below the OS.  Watch out.  John Heasman with NGSsoftware is the MAN in this area and has contributed a bunch of great stuff on firmware rootkits.
