Defending against the latest malware threats!

March 18 2013

ThreatTrack Security

A new company has been established to help Enterprises combat advanced persistent threats and malware.

Yet although a new company, ThreatTrack Security Inc, is comprised of proven technologies for the analysis, detection and remediation of advanced cyber-threats plus experienced malware fighters to combat them.

ThreatTrack Security was formerly the Security Business Unit of GFI Software and today launched operations as an independent company dedicated to the analysis, detection and remediation of advanced malware threats. ThreatTrack Security specialises in helping businesses & organisations to identify and prevent Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), targeted attacks and sophisticated malware designed to evade the traditional cyber-defences deployed by Enterprises, Government bodies, and Small and Medium-sized Businesses (SMBs) around the world.

Julian Waits, CEO of ThreatTrack Security said:

“It’s time for a new approach to malware defence.”

“APTs and other complex malware attacks have Enterprises – especially those in globally competitive industries like finance, aerospace, healthcare, technology, and oil and gas exploration – struggling to maintain the integrity of their networks and intellectual property. Moreover, many Enterprises lack the necessary tools to know with certainty if they are a victim of an APT or other advanced malware strike. ThreatTrack Security was established to help Enterprises bolster their cybersecurity readiness right now.”

Experience That Counts

ThreatTrack Security is different from the string of recent start-ups proposing untried security solutions and strategies to combat advanced cyber threats. With more than a decade of experience analysing and remediating malware, the company has developed proven solutions that defend against the escalating sophistication of cybercrime, and it has built a proven track record of satisfying demanding customers on a global scale.

“In the coming months, ThreatTrack Security will unveil a new product roadmap that will augment our existing security solutions and enable us to deliver on our promise of a stronger, more secure enterprise cyber-defence,” added Waits.

ThreatTrack Security solutions include:

ThreatAnalyzer (formerly GFI SandBox) is an automated malware analysis sandbox  that provides detailed malware behavioral reports to help enterprises defend against APTs, Zero-day threats and targeted attacks by analyzing files and URLs for malicious activity in a controlled, customizable environment. ThreatAnalyzer – increasingly deployed by enterprises nationwide – is deployed by US Government security, defense and intelligence agencies, making it an integral component of the U.S. cybersecurity infrastructure.

VIPRE Business Premium is the company’s most robust business antivirus solution  that combines antivirus, integrated patch management, Mobile Device Management (MDM) and more to centrally manage and defend PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads and Android devices. VIPRE Internet Security is the company’s premier home antivirus software with anti-spyware and malware protection, automated updates for unpatched software, a firewall to stop malicious web traffic, an anti-spam filter and malicious website blocker. Millions of users worldwide trust VIPRE for their endpoint security.

ThreatIQ provides the real-time malware intelligence  that most enterprises lack. The service helps ensure that an enterprise’s perimeter security defenses – such as firewalls, IDS/IPS, SIEM, web filters and anti-spam products – identify and stop threats as they emerge. Customers receive continuous streams of malicious URLs and IP address, suspected files, phishing links and other malware data as it’s discovered by ThreatTrack Security Labs.

In addition to a wide array of end-user customers – including large enterprises, government agencies, educational institutions, SMBs and consumers – dozens of OEMs and ISVs  partner with ThreatTrack Security to harden their products with integrated malware defenses.
