Determina was a leading provider of enterprise-class host intrusion prevention systems based on breakthrough technology developed at M.I.T. The Determina Vulnerability Protection Suite (VPS) is the first solution that offers Real Time Vulnerability Protection, which delivers the highest levels of security without disrupting business operations. Unlike attack-oriented security technologies, vulnerability protection offers customers the ability to comprehensively address the security and operational issues around security and patching. Determina VPS offers comprehensive vulnerability protection though its two products - Memory Firewall, which provides proactive, zero-day protection for the most dangerous class of vulnerabilities, and LiveShield, which provides precise vulnerability protection in real time.
