Norman SandBox® technologyNorman’s innovative SandBox® technology detects and isolates existing and zero day threats before they infect your system. It focuses on detecting binary malware and network worms, which are the most common and most damaging forms of malware. One of the increasingly common ways for malware to infect computers is to exploit vulnerabilities in popular applications and file formats, such as PDF, MS Office and others. Norman SandBox® detects this malware by going through the data file, looking for shell (executable) code. When found, the SandBox locates the entry point of the code and allows the malware to run its course through execution in a simulated environment. For example, malware initiating API calls to delete files from the system will be intercepted: files are then deleted in the SandBox, but not in the actual system. In this way, SandBox technology allows the malware to believe that it inflicted damage when in fact it did nothing but reveal itself to the SandBox.
