Skycure Will Demonstrate Advanced Malware Attack to Bypass Signature, Static and Dynamic Analysis

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 16, 2016) - Skycure, the leader in mobile threat defense, today announced Adi Sharabani, CEO and co-founder of Skycure, and Yair Amit, CTO and co-founder of Skycure, will present at RSA Conference USA 2016 in San Francisco. The presentation, titled "The Ultimate Reason Why Hackers Are Winning the Mobile Malware Battle" will discuss how today's threat defenses are easily infiltrated by hackers and how enterprises can turn the tables on the hackers behind next-generation mobile malware. The presentation will include a live creation of an advanced malware attack.

Sharabani and Amit are the experts that revealed the "No iOS Zone" vulnerability in their presentation at last year's San Francisco RSA Conference. 

WHAT:
The Ultimate Reason Why Hackers Are Winning the Mobile Malware Battle

Adi Sharabani and Yair Amit will break down the current set of techniques (signatures, static analysis, dynamic analysis, social cyber-intelligence) used to identify malware on mobile devices, explain why attackers constantly succeed in fooling these technologies and explore the negative trade-offs in various security solutions. During a live, interactive demo, the team will create a mobile malware, meant to be undetected by all static and runtime analysis technologies. Audience members will be encouraged to participate, and opt into an ethical attack to witness the results in real-time.
