VirusTotal += Invincea
We welcome Invincea scanner to VirusTotal. This is a machine learning engine from USA. In the words of the company:
“Invincea is a machine learning endpoint security software company dedicated to killing threats without impacting business performance. X by Invincea combines machine learning and behavioral monitoring to eliminate endpoint security blind spots without sacrificing usability.
The deep learning model that powers X by Invincea was built based on years of research in Invincea Labs supported by DARPA funding — the US government agency working on breakthrough technologies for national security. Using this technology, X can determine if a file is malicious, even if that file has never been seen before and does not have a known signature. First, X by Invincea extracts unique file features about the program and its capabilities. Second, the extracted features are then run through a multi-stage deep learning algorithm to determine how similar the file is to other malware families. X by Invincea then returns whether the file is malicious, along with the malware family that it mostly likely derives from.“
