Invincea Launches Small Business Offering To Address Highly Vulnerable and Underserved Market

Announcement Comes on the Heels of Major Revenue and Deployment Milestones of 200% Y-o-Y and Q-o-Q Growth, Protecting Nearly 10,000 Organizations Around the Globe

FAIRFAX, VA — November 12, 2013 — Invincea, Inc., an innovator in the use of secure virtual containers for advanced malware threat detection, breach prevention and forensic threat intelligence, today announced the launch of Invincea FreeSpace™ for Small Business in response to a dramatic increase in demand from this highly vulnerable yet underserved market.

According to Verizon’s 2013 Data Breach Investigations Report, almost three-quarters of all data breaches (72%) targeted companies with less than 100 employees and the vast majority are initiated with a spear-phishing campaign. Invincea is launching this solution to help small businesses combat this alarming reality. The announcement is accompanied by the launch of an online e-commerce site for purchasing FreeSpace™ for Small Business on www.invincea.com making it easy for businesses with under 250 employees to procure the company’s cutting edge, award-winning endpoint security solution that protects against spear-phishing and Web-based drive-by attacks.

“Since bringing Invincea FreeSpace™ to market, we have had dramatic adoption from enterprises across the Global 2000. Our deployed customer base now touches dozens of industry verticals including energy, oil & gas, high tech, financial services, healthcare, retail, transportation, defense industrial as well as federal and state government agencies,” said Anup Ghosh, Founder and CEO of Invincea. “While the large enterprise segment is prized by both adversaries and security companies, the small business sector is increasingly a favored soft target for cyber exploits. Lack of access to advanced security technology common to larger enterprises makes the small business sector an easy target to exploit. This is fertile ground for innovation, and as such, makes an ideal target for Intellectual Property theft in some cases, and cyber-crime in others.”

In the Defense Industrial sector, many of the large defense contractors depend on small businesses to develop intellectual property, supply equipment and fulfill contracts. These firms are targeted by advanced threats specifically for IP theft and compromise. In addition, organized cyber-crime now targets small business financial operations for theft and fraud because they are ill-equipped to deal with spear-phishing and other targeted attacks.

Ghosh continued, “To date, Advanced Threat Protection technology, such as Invincea’s, has not been available to small businesses. On the back of strong organic demand from the small business sector and the success with Dell’s offering of Invincea software on all Dell commercial machines, we are excited to bring to market Invincea FreeSpace™ for Small Business. The offering provides small businesses with the same advanced threat protection technology that is defending our large enterprise clients against advanced attacks and zero-day exploits. Our cloud-hosted management makes managing these endpoint clients simple and cost effective.”

This new offering protects small business clients from targeted and unknown malware as well as common cyber-crime exploit kits by moving web-browsers, PDF readers and Office applications into secure virtual containers outfitted with advanced behavioral sensors for malware detection. Unlike traditional anti-virus solutions, which require prior knowledge of attacks, and are therefore easily bypassed by current and future attacks, Invincea FreeSpace for Small Business relies on a strategy of virtual containers and behavioral-based detection—making it possible to protect against targeted and conventional threats directed at end users, including zero-day exploits and unknown malware. Invincea FreeSpace for Small Business provides cloud-based provisioning, management of clients and threat reporting at a price point that is within reach of typical small business security budgets.

Invincea is recognized as the market leader in Advanced Threat Protection solutions for the endpoint. In June 2013, Invincea became the first technology of its kind and the only anti-malware solution to ship straight from the factory on all Dell commercial devices including: Precision, Latitude and Optiplex machines. The OEM deal announced by Dell is now shipping Invincea on more than 60 million devices globally over the next three years. The company recently received the 2013 Northern Virginia Technology Council “Cyber Innovator” Award and was previously named “Most Innovative Company of the Year” at the RSA Conference 2011 and “Best Anti-Malware Solution” for 2012 by Government Security News (GSN). Just last week, Invincea was also named a Finalist for two GSN Homeland Security Award categories: “Best Anti-Malware Solution” and “Best Endpoint Security Solution.”
