Symantec‘s R&D engineers are working on a new virtual machine technology that is focused on protecting users from online attacks while surfing the Web. It works under the concept of setting up multiple virtual machines on a user’s physical machine. And then, it enables a user to perform operations of different security levels and different scenario based transactions in each of the different virtual machines. The so-called VIBES prototype puts a new spin on things to significantly improve browser security.
David Marshall got a sneak peek of VIBES at Symantec’s R&D labs, and you can read the rest of his report here.
