Startup Intends to Shake Up Antivirus Industry With a Decentralized Marketplace

Since early January the PolySwarm IT startup keeps making waves revealing its plans to create the first decentralized marketplace for threat intelligence, where security experts build anti-malware engines that compete to protect users. There are 400 new threats every minute, and up to 70 percent of emerging attacks going undetected by signature-based antivirus. According to the PolySwarm's brief, the $8.5 bln industry is dominated by few very large companies, that try to solve for common "Known" malware, but fail to detect new threats. The company will keep 15 percent of the tokens, while the other 15 percent will be used to grow the network, including strategic allocations to potential security industry partners.
