Malware Detection and Analysis to Protect Critical Assets

Organizations have been dealing with targeted attacks and Advanced Threats for over ten years. Recently, these attacks have gained more publicity as the threat has become more pronounced and as breaches involving global brand names have been disclosed. Yet security defenses still rely on “known bad” mechanisms such as malware signatures and other known Indicators of Compromise. This leaves the organization exposed to zero-day vulnerabilities where “known bad” indicators do not exist. RSA ECAT uses a different approach. It conducts live memory and behavioral analysis and assigns a suspect level score to each application module. By applying intelligence to whitelist “known good” modules the security analyst is able to focus on advanced and unknown threats and anomalies. By adopting a signature-less approach to malware detection and analysis organizations can defend against targeted attacks for a more proactive security posture.

RSA Professional Services accelerates time-to-value by enabling organizations to rapidly leverage product investments, align use cases with business requirements and update standard operating procedures. The RSA Malware Intelligence Program for ECAT service addresses the lifecycle of requirements, from analysis and design to deployment and management.

This service facilitates and accelerates the development of an enterprise malware intelligence capability using ECAT to identify, collect and analyze the types of clues which targeted attacks leave behind thereby reducing Breach Exposure Time and protecting critical assets.
