Vicarius protects clients against exploitation of yet-to-be-discovered software vulnerabilities. The Vicarius powered platform, called Topia, enables companies to predict, prioritize and protect against software vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by hackers. Vicarius begins by identifying vulnerabilities within clients' digital environment using a proprietary binary code analysis methodology. It then prioritizes these vulnerabilities, building a live threat map of the organization's infrastructure, using asset context analysis. Lastly, a shim layer is deployed to protect software from identified vulnerabilities by limiting access to its exploitable code in real-time. Topia is live and already protecting dozens of organizations worldwide.
