OMAHA, NE -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Solutionary, the leading pure-play managed security services provider (MSSP), today announced the availability of its latest complimentary white paper,"How Malware Analysis Benefits Incident Response." The paper provides security and risk professionals with an understanding not only of the value of malware analysis in incident response but also of how analysis services from a managed security services provider (MSSP) can provide effective threat intelligence that can be used to reduce malware-driven risks. Highly sophisticated malware is at the root of many data breaches; malware analysis helps responders understand the extent of a breach, rapidly identify affected hosts or systems, provides actionable intelligence, and speeds the security incident recovery process.
"Malware is sophisticated, targeted, and complex, as well as more commercialized and scalable. Attacks can affect multiple hosts or systems, and they may be widespread. Yet common antivirus and network-based detection solutions typically cannot detect the malware used in advanced threats," said Don Gray, chief security strategist for Solutionary. "Only malware analysis can provide the in-depth reverse engineering needed to respond swiftly and effectively to an attack. Our new white paper is based on our SERT team's years of experience in researching security threats and protecting clients from malware attacks. Enterprises that employ malware analysis as part of their security program benefit from better protection, more efficient threat response and a strengthened defensive postures."
Malware Analysis Has Wide-Ranging Role in Security Strategies
"Strong analysis has become increasingly important in helping responders more effectively mitigate the security vulnerabilities posed by malware," said Rob Kraus, director of Solutionary's SERT. "However, the benefits of malware analysis extend beyond its immediate use in incident response. Our white paper also gives readers insight into how the results of malware analysis also provide the global intelligence needed to help avoid future compromises."
