IKARUS Malware Scan-Engine for OEM Integration: Full platform coverage with strong detection performance

IKARUS has beed developing and refining its Malware Scan Engine 100 % in-house since 1986. Beyond a strong and reliable detection performance, the focus of the development is clearly on stability and speed. And this with success: IKARUS offers one of the fastest and most stable malware engines on the international market.

The IKARUS anti-malware technology detects and anylses malware, vulnerabilities and exploits in almost all files, archives and communication channels. With multi-level scans, behavioural analysis, sandboxing and its unlimited recursion depth, IKARUS protects against both known and emerging threats. An intelligent multi-sandbox integration extends selected solutions to defend against sophisticated targeted attacks (Advanced Persistent Threats – APT).

The IKARUS Malware Scan Engine is scaleable as desired and the processing times are hardly noticeable even with high data volumes. The consistently high detection rates across all operating systems are outstanding, even in offline environments.

Platforms and services with diverse or unknown content sources will benefit from maximum security and compatibility with minimum effort. The IKARUS OEM solutions enable you to implement any specific requirements while at the same time reducing costs, complexity and computing times.

Securing file sharing services against malware and missuse

As more and more systems and workflows move to the cloud, either private or public, there is an increasing need for curating these systems so that they do not harbour malicious content. Any system that allows upload of user-controlled content can potentially be misused to host and distribute malware. It is therefore essential to scan the user content for malicious code.

»We can offer a solution to address this issue, that is proven to scale globally and with the exact same detection performance in both connected and air-gapped systems, and across a variety of operating systems and CPU architectures.«

its performance.”


“The IKARUS Malware Scan Engine
stands out due to its stability and
very good detection performance.”


How the IKARUS Malware Scan Engine works

The IKARUS Malware Scan Engine works with highly developed, particularly powerful scanning technologies to analyse a wide variety of content. The system’s special features include broad support for different operating systems and platforms as well as consistently high detection rates independent of the operating system for which a malware was designed. Another unique advantage is the unchanged detection strength even in offline operation.

Regardless of the modes of transmission and the external appearance of the content, the IKARUS Malware Scan Engine uses various multi-level and modular procedures to analyse the file type and content of a container. It does not only examine the code statically and with the help of heuristic analyses, but also dynamically in self-developed sandbox environments, where actions, reactions and accesses of the file are observed and evaluated.

Compressed archives are unpacked for these analyses, whereby the IKARUS Malware Scan Engine, unlike other solutions, can unpack unlimited interleaving in order to check each file individually. Password-protected files can be decrypted and scanned using password lists.

On premise scanning: no data-uploads to the cloud

Files are analysed, extracted and checked until either malware has been found or all contents––including hidden codes or links––have been checked and the file is classified as “clean”. Via telemetry, code snippets or metadata of suspicious files that require further analysis can be automatically forwarded to the IKARUS Analyses Team for further processing.

All file scans and analysis take place on premise, the IKARUS Malware Scan Engine does not upload any customer data to the cloud. Even without internet connection, the detection performance of the IKARUS Malware Scan Engine remains unchanged strong, making it perfectly suitable for the integration in air-gapped systems.
