GFI has launched a new security business unit that will focus on advanced threats.
Named ThreatTrack Security, the new company will continue GFI's work on advanced threat detections solutions and sophisticated malware and offers re-branded products from the existing Vipre range, which was acquired along with Sunbelt Software in 2010.
According to ThreatTrack Security, it can offer more than a decade of experience analysing and remediating malware and developing proven solutions that defend against the escalating sophistication of cyber crime.
The first product to be offered is the ThreatAnalyzer, previously the GFI Sandbox, which is an automated malware analysis sandbox that provides malware behavioural reports to help enterprises defend against zero-day threats and targeted attacks by analysing files and URLs for malicious activity in a controlled, customisable environment, according to the company.
Also offered is real-time malware intelligence from ThreatIQ, which GFI said provides a continuous stream of malicious URLs and IP addresses, suspected files, phishing links and other malware data as it is discovered by ThreatTrack security labs.
Julian Waits, CEO of ThreatTrack Security, said: “Advanced persistent threats and other complex malware attacks have enterprises struggling to ensure 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 advanced malware strike. ThreatTrack Security was established to help enterprises bolster their cyber security readiness right now.
“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.”
