SocketShield Zero-Day Exploits Protection Tool
 
Exploit Prevention Labs first product SocketShield, now in beta, protects Internet users against the growing threat of zero-day exploits that take advantage of unpatched vulnerabilities in Windows operating systems and applications. These exploits usually involve drive-by downloads of rootkits that assume remote command and control over the victim's computer to perpetrate crimes such as identity theft, extortion, fraud, and espionage.

Software vulnerabilities are a fact of life. What's needed is a way to prevent the bad guys from exploiting the risk window — the time between discovery and patching of a vulnerability. This risk window is getting wider as the criminals get smarter — zero-day exploits can be in circulation within minutes of a vulnerability being announced, while software companies take an average of two months to distribute a fully-tested patch.

SocketShield stops exploits from getting on to computers during the risk window. Easy to use, it protects vulnerable systems against drive-by-downloads and other web-based zero-day exploits. Developed by the people behind PestPatrol and ZoneAlarm, SocketShield delivers the first truly effective protection against zero-day exploits.
