VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is a technology so innovative and different from the "classical" approaches of IT security that it is unclassifiable.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is a disruptive technology in the field of trust and IT security. It is literally fundamental, generic and seminal. It is for these reasons that it can be considered at the same time as:
- The perfect Antivirus including for ZERO DAY attacks (100% effective),
- The ideal technology to implement a ZERO TRUST architecture,
- The ultimate Endpoint Detection Response (EDR),
- A perfect Defense in Depth,
- The decisive solution against Cyber espionage (Advanced Persistent Threat(APT)),
- The ideal solution against cyber sabotage.
It allows to implement a collective defense on a global scale.
In conclusion, VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is "the security of security". It completely changes the game in the field of trust and security in cyberspace.

Why the SUNBURST cyberattack would not have taken place if VALIDY TECHNOLOGY had been activated ?
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is a patented breakthrough technology that allows any digital system to ensure in real-time its own ‘defense in depth’ against any cyberattack. It is a hardware and software combination-based protection. The hardware part is embedded within the processor.
This protection transforms any software into an attack detection probe. As soon as VALIDY TECHNOLOGY detects an attack, it enables the protected system to take appropriate retaliatory measures to ensure its safety and integrity. It can also send information about the ongoing attack to a Security Operational Center (SOC). In the case of the SUNBURST cyberattack, it would have been unachievable for hackers to prepare and "mount" this attack without being immediately detected and subjected to the measures of appropriate retaliation. The cyberattack SUNBURST would not have taken place.
It is VITAL, at the dawn of the global deployment of 5G, Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), that VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is activated worldwide in all digital systems to restore trust and security in cyberspace.

VALIDY TECHNOLOGY protects program integrity in real time during execution.
This innovative technology, based on a combination of hardware (security coprocessor) and software (by means of a compiler) provides this protection and does not require prior knowledge of virus signatures. It is therefore effective by nature against any type of virus (100%) whatever its composition and form.
This is why we equate it to a Universal Digital Vaccine.
It should be noted that the strength of the protection rests on the solidity of the material part (security coprocessor / microprocessor).
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY creates a remoteness between the protected material and the hacker (deprived of his gift of ubiquity) who can only corrupt the system by a physical attack. We thus restore the same level of safety, reliability and security in the digital world as in the physical world.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is therefore a major breakthrough innovation, a total paradigm shift in the area of defense and cyberspace security. Its global deployment will fundamentally contribute to confidence and security in cyberspace.
Zero Trust is an architecture concept that makes sense when using VALIDY TECHNOLOGY. The Zero Trust architecture brings an improvement in security only if we can trust the decision chain that authorizes or not the access to an information system. Zero Trust must be able to trust its security infrastructure and this is exactly what VALIDY TECHNOLOGY provides.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is by construction a Zero Trust architecture compliant technology.
The security it brings to a protected system does not depend on any signature and any trusted third party. A system protected by VALIDY TECHNOLOGY becomes by nature a trusted system. The entire security infrastructure of the Zero Trust architecture can be based on VALIDY TECHNOLOGY and is perfectly secure, open and interoperable.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is a technology capable of instantly detecting any type of attack, including unknown ones (Zero day). VALIDY TECHNOLOY is able to transform each protected program into an attack detection probe and applies in depth to all levels of software (Firmware, Operating System, Application Software). It is therefore a Deep Endpoint Detection Response. The response of VALIDY TECHNOLOGY EDR depends on the applications.
It can for example:
- send the attack information to a Security Operating Center (SOC) equipped with artificial intelligence,
- put in security condition an embedded system in a means of transport,
- protect the automatons involved in the management of a sensitive infrastructure (Industrial Control System /SCADA).
It enables the implementation of a collective defense on a global scale.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY's ability to detect attacks instantly provides a major additional advantage (Patent Detection and Coercion). Indeed, any serious attack such as an APT must be carefully prepared and tested in order to be stealthy and persistent. The hackers must set it up without being detected and have a lot of time to exploit it to the maximum. To do this, they must have a "clone" of the system to be attacked to adjust and repeat the attack on this "clone" until they obtain the desired result.
This testing phase is long and delicate and the "clone" protected by VALIDY TECHNOLOGY detects at each attack attempt the attack, and can report it to a security operation center (SOC) and/or put itself in operational security condition preventing in fine any completion of the attack preparation.
This characteristic of VALIDY TECHNOLOGY makes any attack preparation extremely delicate, if not impossible even for State attackers and thus represents a major obstacle for APTs.

Many companies and intermediaries have worked with VALIDY for business intelligence and technology watch purposes. VALIDY is not known to the general public and companies of intermediate sizes. On the other hand, it is well known to large companies and large groups that envy its technology and its patent portfolio.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY applies wherever there is digital electronics. Its market is as wide as the global market for electronics and information technology.
These applications are both civil and military: it's a "dual technology"
It is particularly useful in those fields:
Financial, Technological, Governmental, Health, Energy, Trade, Production, Transport, Insurance, Banking, Robotics.
It is especially effective for protecting embedded systems.
Very resource efficient, its the only one really able to protect the Internet of Things (IOT).
It also protects distributed systems such as those operated by the Operators of Vital Importance, including those driven by SCADA and all systems involved in the "Cloud".
(Nuclear power station, railway network, telecommunication network, water distribution network, energy distribution network, airport infrastructure, boats, planes, cars, etc ...)
A system protected by VALIDY TECHNOLOGY can be updated by its designer without difficulties, it is also one of its enormous assets.
It allows all security applications to secure themselves
It allows a real Defense In Depth of the systems
It also allows security service platforms (SAAS) to secure themselves
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY detects any attempt to corrupt a program, from outside as well as from inside. It restores confidence in digital systems. Any computer program can defend itself. It even allows a program to guarantee that it works normally even when running on a corrupted system. Applied to all levels of a computer system, processor’s microarchitecture, firmware, drivers, operating system, database engine, file manager, application running on the system or even distributed systems running in the "Cloud", it provides a real Defense In Depth.
By nature VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is a perfect anti-virus, able to detect any unknown never listed virus ("Zero Day" attack).
When an equipment is protected by VALIDY TECHNOLOGY, a hacker cannot use that equipment to prepare an attack.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY, deployed globally, would have countered the STUXNET, WANNACRY and PETYA attacks.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY, deployed globally, would have helped protect processors from MELTDOWN and SPECTRE vulnerabilities by detecting in real time that the processor is under attack and implementing the appropriate retaliatory measures.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY solves a lot of problems, and solves it well, but it doesn’t solve everything. It is for example ineffective against attacks based on Social Engineering.
It is also inefficient for countering identity theft.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY restores the balance between defense and attack in cyberspace and generally in the digital world.
It significantly strengthens the defense capabilities of electronic and computer equipments against both insiders and outsiders attacks.
Protected weapons systems remain secure, under the control of their users, in accordance with their manufacturer's specifications.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY can protect information infrastructures, making them much more difficult to penetrate and less prone to data theft.
It prevents mass attacks across networks. A service in physical possession of a protected equipment, has means of additional attacks, allowing, with the appropriate tools, to extract the information that would be hidden in this equipment.
It should be noted that the physical attack of a protected equipment, does not weaken the protection of other equipment of the same type.
The Antivirus editors have realized that they have to change paradigms, and that antivirus scanning based on virus signatures is becoming increasingly inefficient.
So they started building new security systems based on artificial intelligence modules to detect upstream threats.
The hackers understood that to go under the radars of these new antivirus they have to design viruses with artificial intelligence which must also learn how to go indetected. The competition between attack and defense in cyber space thus becomes a struggle between artificial intelligence systems, substantially increasing the potential danger of new attacks.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is becoming more and more necessary to avoid any loss of control of these artificial intelligence systems.
It can protect Artificial Intelligence systems themselves so that hackers cannot change the code of these systems. It can also protect the data used to train these systems so that
hackers cannot change the behavior of these artificial intelligences by this means.
Finally VALIDY TECHNOLOGY, thanks to the patent "Detection & coercion", can allow an artificial intelligence to exploit this signal in order to contribute to detect any attack worldwide.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is complementary to security systems based on Artificial Intelligence and necessary, or even essential, to protect them from any corruption by hackers.
VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is essential to ensure the integrity of robotic systems, it allows manufacturers to ensure that their robots always work according to their specifications.
intended for processor designers and / or founders
for companies that prescribe and market VALIDY technology
intended for companies that integrate VALIDY technology into their infrastructures, systems, equipment, etc ...
Application license to different sectors
Because VALIDY TECHNOLOGY is a seminal technology that affects all sectors of activity, it is essential that every manufacturer, large or small, can implement VALIDY TECHNOLOGY with all its professionalism to secure its customers.
VALIDY pays particular attention to a Fair, Reasonable, And Non Discriminatory (FRAND) licensing model.
Based on this business model, the deployment of VALIDY TECHNOLOGY can rely on the professionalism and experience of all. The challenge of cyber security and cyber defense is so important that federating globally has become indispensable.
