MULTI-SCANNING

TECHNICAL COLLABORATION BETWEEN SECURITY VENDORS

Anyone who has experience with malware protection and the available security solutions and providers will have come to the following conclusion: All products have certain similarities; the user interfaces, the features, the security techniques used. The results for malware identification, on the other hand, are quite different.

That’s not surprising. All these products have the same task to perform, and the most up-to-date techniques provide the framework for their solution. Nevertheless, each vendor follows its own path, with its own know-how, its own philosophy, with its own resources and thus achieves different results. These can differ in aspects such as performance, stability, handling and so on – especially in the detection of threats. All the vendors agree on some malware samples, but not all of them.

The simple use of multiple vendors at the same time to combine their detection rates and opportunities may seem like an obvious solution. But, anyone who tries this quickly realises that this is not a good idea. The reason for this is simple: each product tries to fulfill the same task, using similar components and thus colliding with similar products. The consequences range from performance problems, to instability, to the crash of the computer system.

How is collaboration possible?

Tabidus solves this problem and allows for technical collaboration between the different vendors. The need for flexibility is also taken into account. The desires and needs of enterprises, with regard to the anti-malware vendors to be used, are diverse and can not be met with fixed combinations.

The protection of a security product is not based on its user interface or management options, but on the technology used inside. Collisions with other products are mainly caused by those components that exist around the core technology. Tabidus therefore reduces a vendor to its technology core, removes all other components and replaces them with universal ones, which are simultaneously available for all vendors. In addition, these dynamic components include a multitude of tasks to ensure coordinated collaboration across technologies.

This creates a universal security product that is based on a scanning framework in which the different technology cores of different providers are embedded. These can be activated at any time, used by click and combined as desired. This allows multi-vendor collaboration without the traditional problems of multi-scanning, whilst optimising all the benefits of the multi-vendor approach.

The simultaneous use of multiple security vendors can certainly offer many benefits, especially if that can happen flexibly. Traditional security products are not meant for joint use, meaning that combining them is problematic. To do so properly requires a special setup, such as a universal scanning framework from a dedicated vendor, such as the IT security association Tabidus Technology, who oversees the coordination of various technologies and ensures smooth collaboration.
