Deep Instinct Prevention for Applications

Deep Instinct Prevention for Applications is an agentless, on-demand, antimalware solution that prevents ransomware, zero-day, and unknown malware-infected files before they reach endpoint, server, or storage. The product scans the entire content of a file to provide fast and extremely accurate malicious vs benign decisions in <20ms with <0.1% false positives and an extremely low footprint.
