Application-Level Virtualization

Sharon writes "On the current wave of free virtualization for everyone, an Israelian company called Trustware, who has recently been nominated one of the 10 hot start-ups of 2006 by Microsoft, developed an application-level virtualization tool for Windows.

This app, called BufferZone, promises to fight malware virtualizing I/O operations, so that the OS and user's data will be safe. Another cool advantage of this technology is that it doesn't require any user interaction, nor signature updates to be downloaded.

SecurityFocus published an interview with Eyal Dotan, creator of the tool, where he discusses the architecture, advantages of this design, performance, and how this method could be applied to servers running Windows or be ported to other OSes."
