With the latest release of Symantec Critical System Protection 5.2.9 MP1, organizations can address the needs of older Windows 32-bit platforms that are vulnerable to advanced memory attacks. The Memory Control feature in this release allows you to combat these advanced memory attacks, like reflective DLL injection.

Memory Control is another layer in Critical System Protection’s defense-in-depth approach to security that allows you to:

  1. Protect your critical systems from memory-based attacks, such as memory injections and in-memory executables  
  2. Stop malicious code from being loaded and executed within the memory space of core system services
  3. Prevent malware from using in-memory manipulation techniques within an exploited process

The Symantec Critical System Protection 5.2.9 MP1 release also includes expanded platform support for Windows 7 Embedded (32-bit and 64-bit).
