Waratek, which came to light in Accenture’s London FinTech Innovation Lab with its software to run multiple Java apps on a single server, has found its technology also provides protection against even previously unknown threats or security flaws, so-called zero day attacks.
Actually, Waratek didn’t design or discover this — a technologist at a European money center bank who was testing Waratek told the software company that its design provided a significant jump forward in security. Waratek responded quickly and launched Java Application Security which detects and blocks threats from within the Java Virtual Machine.
The value of its security tools was confirmed at the April RSA conference where it won the title of Most Innovative Company in the RSA Innovation Sandbox competition.1
Now the company has announced it can automatically fix security flaws inside Java apps within 30 minutes, an improvement over the usual 90 days it takes firms to discover and correct security problems.
