How PowerGuard Works
PowerGuard is a pass-through plug that constantly analyzes your equipment’s power consumption for anomalies and signs of malware. It works literally outside the box and integrates with SIEMs to give you new visibility into embedded and fixed-purpose computers that are traditionally hard to monitor. PowerGuard spots costly problems or breaches quickly to protect your assets—with zero software installation or hardware changes.
Closely monitors the whole system’s power consumption to catch malware even before it triggers alarms in network-based monitors—cutting detection time from days to seconds.
Detects threats on devices that are vulnerable to malware but incompatible with conventional anti-malware measures—granting visibility into devices that other tools can’t track.
Uses advanced signal processing to expose hidden malware and identify new malware variants before traditional tools. Stays in touch with our constantly updated cloud-based monitoring infrastructure.
About Virta Labs
We founded Virta Labs in 2013 to protect companies’ most vulnerable assets: devices that are hard to monitor or upgrade, yet are vulnerable to malware. Our flagship product, PowerGuard, monitors the huge and growing population of devices that traditional monitoring and anti-malware tools can’t reach. This added protection lets customers quickly identify malware infections that could lead to breaches, downtime and lost revenue if left unaddressed.
Unlike traditional tools, PowerGuard doesn’t need to change the software or hardware of the devices it monitors. Every PowerGuard-monitored device gets access to the centralized recognition engine that learns normal and abnormal power patterns for each device or family of devices. For a simple monthly price per device, Virta Labs cuts through the fog and gives companies peace of mind.
