Crowdsourced Malware Analysis
for new and emerging threats

PolySwarm is a more effective way to detect, analyze and respond to the latest threats, the ones more likely to go undetected by existing solutions.

We are a launchpad for new technologies and innovative threat detection methods, where commercial solutions and specialized engines compete to detect threats, and get compensated based on performance.

Specialized Engines
to protect against the latest threats

Specialized engines are niche and research-driven, often authored by independent, well known researchers and security teams, developing cutting-edge threat detection methods.

PolySwarm brings them together to cover the existing protection gaps and better protect enterprises against new threats.

Performance-Based Compensation
To Improve Accuracy

PolySwarm’s economic model incentivizes specialization and rewards early and accurate detection of threats.

  • Engines are incentivized to respond only when confident

  • Reflect confidence behind each opinion by staking money

  • And get compensated based on the accuracy of their determinations

Contextual Threat Scoring
To Enable SOC Automation

Multiscanners and crowdsourced solutions provide multiple and often conflicting opinions on potential threats. Who should you trust? Concluding requires additional intuition-based work, which takes time, produces inconsistent results and can not be automated.

PolyScore™ provides the probability a given file contains malware in a single, authoritative number.
