Xvirus Joins PolySwarm Network to Protect Enterprises Against Malware

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO - November 13, 2018 - PolySwarm, the first decentralized threat intelligence marketplace, today announced its partnership with Xvirus to further advance its ecosystem of quality malintent detection. Xvirus will integrate its malware detection engine into the PolySwarm’s network.

The Xvirus Scanning Engine is a simple and easy-to-use protection tool designed to keep computers at bay from the various threats and infections that can attack from numerous sources. The engine is available in both SDK and CLI and is a light and effective way to improve existing services or products with its incredible detection rate and helpful support, a perfect combination for any business.

“PolySwarm’s prediction market is one of the most novel ideas I’ve seen in the threat intelligence space,” said Dani Santos, Lead Engineer at Xvirus. “We are excited to participate in this new economy powered by blockchain where the best performers get paid to protect users. The transparency of the marketplace will provide an objective way to benchmark suppliers and to gather intelligence to continue to improve our Xvirus’s products.”

With this partnership, PolySwarm continues to expand its open and crowdsourced ecosystem by onboarding new anti-malware engines, allowing them to generate passive income for accurately detecting threats and access a vast stream of malware samples to improve their products while providing broader, more accurate protection for consumers.

“We are very excited to have Xvirus join the growing network of PolySwarm’s micro-engines,” said Steve Bassi, PolySwarm CEO. “As the number of powerful security engines in the PolySwarm network expands, so does the coverage against threats, ensuring enterprises are properly fortified against evolving malware.”
