Malware detection

On top of nimbusec's Shell Ray engine we utilize commercial anti virus engines from Ikarus and Avira. The nimbusec's Shell Ray engine specializes in areas above and beyond traditional anti-virus engines by analyzing actual source code behavior.

webshell detection

SPAM- and Web shell detection
The nimbusec server agent runs on your web server and is fully controlled by you. It operates on almost all operating system and provides the intelligence of cloud analysis while maintaining absolute data protection.

nimbusec does not use static signatures, but instead performs an intelligent source code analysis on your web servers. This enables nimbusec to detect new malware long before signatures exist.

SPAM shells are subject to extensive mutation and difficult to locate by anti virus software. nimbusec's intelligent source code analysis detects SPAM shells long before anti virus signatures exist.
