Upon winning a first grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2013, SecondWrite began its research into program code analysis and binary rewriting (flipping the conditionals at a binary level) per the mandate of that award. Subsequently, SecondWrite benefited from two additional research grants funded by the National Security Agency to apply the research to malware detection – especially for evasive malware. This research was conducted at the University Of Maryland – a center for pioneering entrepreneurship, cybersecurity advancements, and program analysis techniques.
SecondWrite was granted two patents out of its research and development – US Patent #9448788 for a binary rewriting system and US Patent #9900324 for a system to discover and analyze evasive malware. These patents are the foundation of SecondWrite’s unique DeepView technology.
In 2018, SecondWrite released a first version of its cloud-based SaaS DeepView Sandbox and sold it to early-adopter customers. DeepView Sandbox was readily accepted and purchased by major security vendors to augment their security products in order to get accurate verdicts with confidences and reports detailing exact behaviors and supporting evidence. DeepView Sandbox was then additionally purchased by MSSPs and enterprise SOCs
In mid-2021, SecondWrite released a first version of its cloud-based SaaS DeepView Scanner and sold it to early-adopter customers. A on-premise version will follow by August 2021. The DeepView Scanner has seen a great deal of interest by major security vendors, software vendors, and Enterprise SOCs to scan a large number accurately, quickly, and affordably.
