ThreatTrack Security Sets New Standard in Advanced Threat Defense
Venture-backed cybersecurity firm introduces ThreatSecure, a disruptive threat detection and remediation technology, and announces plans to expand into Silicon Valley
RESTON, Va., June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — ThreatTrack Security is delivering on its mission to solve the data breach epidemic by announcing the immediate availability of ThreatSecure(TM), a cybersecurity solution that represents an exponential leap forward in advanced threat protection. ThreatSecure is the industry’s only cybersecurity solution to effectively integrate network-based defenses with endpoint security, and it is the first advanced threat defense platform to deliver threat detection with closed-loop endpoint remediation.
ThreatSecure eases the complex task of defending against Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), targeted attacks and Zero-day threats by:
-- Detecting malware that others can't with industry-leading static and dynamic threat analysis, and proprietary, cutting-edge machine learning algorithms utilizing terabytes of data to quickly and accurately detect malware evading signature-based defenses -- Automating the remediation of advanced malware threats with custom remediation signatures for any discovered threat that can be deployed to compromised systems - regardless of what endpoint security solution is in use - to root out cyber-attacks and stop data breaches -- Simplifying the threat protection experience and increasing team productivity by cutting through the noise of constant threat alerts to generate clear threat intelligence unique to a user's network, uncovering the patterns, trends and other vital security data necessary to identify and prioritize risks to launch an effective response
A New Cybersecurity Dynamic
Since its inception, ThreatTrack Security has aggressively invested in developing new innovations and cloud-based infrastructure to discover, analyze and combat the world’s most advanced malware threats. ThreatTrack Security is successfully utilizing Big Data to better defend organizations of all sizes – correlating more than 1 million new malware samples against a growing malware repository of more than 300 million known malicious threats.
ThreatSecure also incorporates components of ThreatTrack Security’s proven, best-of-breed malware defense technologies, including its ThreatAnalyzer malware behavioral analysis sandbox, ThreatIQ real-time threat intelligence service and VIPRE endpoint protection. While these products offer tremendous stand-alone value, their combination represents an evolution in APT defense strategy that makes threat elimination – not just detection – achievable for any organization.
“The unprecedented threat detection and remediation infrastructure we have created is the backbone of ThreatSecure, enabling users to not only discover and eliminate threats that other solutions cannot, but also doing it much faster than ever before,” said Julian Waits, Sr., president and CEO of ThreatTrack Security. “ThreatTrack Security is setting the new standard in advanced threat protection. ThreatSecure offers a simple solution to a complex problem, and it will fundamentally change how the industry and enterprises shape their cybersecurity strategies.”
“The time for advanced anti-malware products to stop at sounding the alarm is over, and it is about time,” said Adrian Sanabria, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research. “Remediation is the next logical step – with the detection piece having all the details necessary to remove advanced malware, it is highly inefficient to depend on the security analyst or engineer to perform automated remediation. Companies investing in advanced malware detection have been asking for products that also remove the threats, and this ability will become a requisite feature in this market.”
Simplifying Advanced Threat Defense
Most enterprises employ several disparate systems and security tools to alert them to potential breaches of data security. The challenge they face is these tools generally need to be managed individually and each delivers its own set of alerts, creating noise and confusion but little actionable information to help respond to threats. This has led to a decision-making crisis in enterprise incident response.
ThreatSecure solves this challenge, providing more actionable threat awareness than any other solution in an enterprise’s cyber-defense arsenal. It provides the in-depth intelligence users need to understand their exposure to each threat, including which users are being targeted, what kind of malware is targeting their network, how the malware is being delivered, where threats originated and more. This data enables organizations to prioritize threat response activities and better defend their network from persistent cyber-attack campaigns.
Stopping Email-Based Attacks
ThreatSecure is available now as an appliance and will first defend against email-based cyber-attacks. Email remains the top threat vector for persistent targeted attacks, which often begin with malicious attachments, links and spear phishing campaigns evading signature-based defenses. ThreatSecure neutralizes these threats, ensuring your email is free of advanced malware.
In the coming months, ThreatTrack Security will expand its capabilities by introducing additional modules in the ThreatSecure suite that will apply this new standard in advanced threat protection across all threat vectors and deliver a complete end-to-end solution.
Silicon Valley Expansion
Backed by Insight Venture Partners and Bessemer Venture Partners, ThreatTrack Security is unlike most tech start-ups in the crowded cybersecurity market. The company is profitable, has a proven track record of defending organizations from emerging malware threats and its technology protects more than 10 million endpoints globally every day.
Positioning itself for future growth and success, ThreatTrack Security today also announced plans to expand its operations to Silicon Valley, where it is actively recruiting and will soon open a new office that will focus on business development, sales and engineering. The company’s global reach already includes offices, and more than 300 staff, in Washington, D.C., Florida, the United Kingdom, Spain and the Philippines.
