GFI SandBox 4.0

CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan 17, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — GFI Software’s Advanced Technology Group (ATG) today announced the latest in a series of enhancements to GFI SandBox(TM) (formerly CWSandBox) that are making dynamic malware analysis more accessible to cyber-security professionals defending enterprises of all sizes. GFI SandBox is one of the industry’s leading malware analysis solutions. It enables users to test files and URLs for potential threats within a controlled environment so they can deploy and implement appropriate defenses when advanced malware and sophisticated cyber-attacks are discovered. GFI SandBox 4.0, scheduled for release Feb. 7, will make advanced malware analysis quicker and easier. The solution’s new Malware Determination Engine provides users with risk levels of "Low", "Medium", "High" or "Known" for each potential malware sample analyzed. Many users typically submit thousands of samples a day to their GFI SandBox to help identify the sophisticated malware attacks often undetected by standard security solutions. The Malware Determination Engine enables security teams to more efficiently evaluate the increasing volume of malware and cybercrime plaguing enterprises across all industries. Additionally, users will be able to implement custom determination rules–based on the hundreds of thousands of malware behavior traits detected by GFI SandBox–to assign their own risk levels to samples that perform suspicious and potentially malicious activities. Cybercrime a Costly, Growing Threat Sophisticated, targeted cybercrime poses a tremendous threat to large enterprises, particularly in industries such as financial services, healthcare and energy, as well as critical entities like power and water utilities. According to the FBI, "Cyber criminals can significantly threaten the finances and reputations of United States businesses and financial institutions. …the number and sophistication of malicious incidents has increased dramatically over the past five years and is expected to continue to grow."(1) The FBI also reported that "…of serious concern are threats to critical infrastructure, the theft of intellectual property, and supply chain issues…" and that "Intellectual property rights violations, including theft of trade secrets, digital piracy, and trafficking counterfeit goods, also represent high cybercriminal threats, resulting in losses of billions of dollars in profits annually."(2) Read more
