“Embedded devices are often deployed in high availability environments spanning diverse geographical areas with little or no local IT management support and yet we expect them to run flawlessly for years on end,” said Ken Steinberg, President/CTO and founder of Savant Protection, Inc. “Savant is designed to protect and harden these systems providing uninterrupted service regardless of deployment strategy, management proximity or accessibility by cybercriminals. In the embedded space, we focus on “locked down” security to ensure unencumbered operational performance.”

Savant prevents malicious software from executing by providing unique cryptographic signatures to the approved application set on each system. Unauthorized or unknown applications are denied access to the CPU, making it impossible for malicious code to execute or spread to other Savant-protected systems. Savant returns control over computing resources to the corporation, from simple monitoring, to malware elimination to complete system lockdown.
