Metaforic releases MetaFortress Enterprise edition

Delivers protection against rootkits, backdoors and malware on business critical software apps

By CBR Staff Writer

Software security company Metaforic has released MetaFortress Enterprise to extend its protection capabilities to better support companies creating software in complex distributed and parallel build environments.

MetaFortress delivers last mile protection against rootkits, backdoors and malware on business critical software applications by providing an offering to the crisis of failing malware scanners, spear-phishing, and crumbling perimeter defenses.

To enable customer applications to be compiled and protected at any scale of development infrastructure, the Enterprise edition MetaFortress extends the standard capabilities and it works with proprietary build systems, open source, or commercial tools such as Incredibuild.

Metaforic CMO and co-founder Andrew McLennan said the launch of MetaFortress Enterprise confirms Metaforic’s commitment to provide robust and scalable anti-tamper protection for critical business applications, particularly in light of the recent dramatic increase in custom malware.

"MetaFortress Enterprise is the latest technology advance delivered by Metaforic to responsible businesses who are ensuring tamper proofing is a standard part of every software development lifecycle," said McLennan.

Metaforic CTO and co-founder Neil Stewart said in the modern development world, many software development houses have moved towards continuous integration, and massively parallel build farms, which can reduce build times by an order of magnitude, significantly improving developer productivity.

"As more customers have been adopting MetaFortress across multiple industries, we found that it was time to extend our standalone protection toolkit with a robust enterprise development version, making it easy to slipstream into large-scale, high-performance systems," said Stewart.
