VirusTotal += Webroot

We welcome the Webroot scanner to VirusTotal. This is a machine learning engine from the US. In the words of the company:


"Webroot SecureAnywhere Business Endpoint Protection is a cloud-driven anti-malware solution and was the first next generation solution to offer a full replacement to conventional AV when launched in 2011.
Rather than rely on static signatures to identify malicious files and process, Webroot uses real-time monitoring and analysis of the events occurring within a device. Then, by using the extensive resources of cloud-based computing, threat and behavioral intelligence, Webroot is able to predict with negligible false positives any signs of malicious behavior. Windows PE files submitted to VirusTotal will be processed by the Webroot PE Scanner, non-PE files will not be scanned.”

Webroot has expressed its commitment to follow the recommendations of AMTSO and, in compliance with our policy, facilitates this review by MRG Effitas, an AMTSO-member tester.

VirusTotal += Endgame

We welcome the Endgame scanner to VirusTotal. This is a machine learning engine from the US. In the words of the company:

"Endgame is a leading endpoint security platform that enables enterprises to close the protection gap against advanced attacks as well as detect and eliminate entrenched adversaries. Endgame's endpoint security platform leverages a series of layered defenses to prevent, detect and respond to threats through a unified endpoint agent. The IOC-independent platform covers the entire kill chain, leveraging machine learning and behavioral techniques to uncover, in real-time, unique attacks that evade traditional defenses and respond precisely without disrupting normal business operations. The malware detection and prevention capability, integrated in VirusTotal today, represents a key element in this layered defense. The machine learning model exposed in VirusTotal detects never-before-seen malware with high efficacy in an extremely lightweight implementation."

Endgame has expressed its commitment to follow the recommendations of AMTSO and, in compliance with our policy, facilitates this review by SE Labs, an AMTSO-member tester.
