Most Malware today use multiple types of evasion techniques to get past security systems. While somewhat varied, they are all built upon the same premise.

They hide in a packer to resemble a legit file

And stay hidden in it until they find a safe, ultimate environment to unpack in.

To find out if a certain environment is ideal they send out a query

While the malware is investigating its environment for these running processes, it keeps any malicious code compressed in an encrypted state, where it cannot be detected. It only unpacks and executes this code when it can be sure none of the aforementioned security tools or compromising elements are in place.

This is where Minerva Environment Simulation Technology comes in

Minerva’s Environment Simulation Technology is built upon a simple premise. As the malware does not unpack or run the code in an environment that appears unsuitable, we can simulate such an environment and prevent the malware from executing.
