Kaspersky Lab

Kaspersky Lab has been granted with 8,762,948 patents for the technology which creates a system and method for filtering insignificant events during software analysis. The Lab has been granted with these patents from the United States Patent and Trademark office. “When developing an effective analytical module, it is important to maintain a balance so that effective protection does not restrict computing performance. First and foremost, we cannot overload this module with insignificant information – it already has enough work to do,” commented Oleg Zaitsev, Lead Technical Specialist at Kaspersky Lab and the author of the patented technology.

The most effective method of analyzing malicious software is through Emulation, because it requires huge amount of data that has to be analyzed. This entire process generates a complete log of the entire event which is then analyzed to identify the effects of the harmful elements. After this a special filtration module is carried out which removes all the insignificant events for the log and update the database.
