GFI Software Announces ThreatTrack 2.0 to Plug Malware Holes in Real-Time

Intelligent monitoring solution provides invaluable security data in the fight against malware

CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today GFI Software™  announced the launch of GFI ThreatTrack™ 2.0, the latest version of the company's proven security intelligence solution that provides users with deep visibility into the threat landscape. A culmination of information collected from GFI SandBox™, GFI's automated malware analysis tool, and the company's extensive partnerships with security organizations worldwide and the company's own malware research professionals, ThreatTrack 2.0 produces a range of data streams containing more than 69 million malicious URLs, IP addresses and other malware samples.

ThreatTrack users rely on this actionable intelligence to play an important part in their efforts to stop malicious websites, emails and other Internet traffic before they can put corporate networks at risk. For example, security integrators and in-house IT security teams integrate ThreatTrack data streams into their security infrastructure to strengthen firewall filtering and third-party proxy solutions, and to respond to emerging threats faster than ever before. Security vendors leverage ThreatTrack to populate their malware reputation database with the latest threats in order to better defend their customers. Additionally, academic researchers use ThreatTrack's data to predict and track malware, and thus, assist the IT security community in their efforts to combat cybercrime.

"When you are up against sophisticated cybercriminals, every minute counts," said Julian Waits, general manager of GFI Software's Security Business Unit. "Zero-day malware threats are much harder for security systems to detect than known malicious files that are already blacklisted. The security industry and the academic world work together closely to analyze new and evolving malware samples and identify ways to stop these threats before they can infect enterprise networks. ThreatTrack can be an invaluable part of this process, as it provides the real-time intelligence needed to combat malware as cybercriminals look for new backdoor vulnerabilities to target."

The latest version of ThreatTrack provides users with up to seven times the data available in version 1.0. Users can now also access the powerful data they have come to rely on to catch malware threats quicker and easier than ever before – which can mean the difference between suffering a breach or remaining secure. Additional benefits of ThreatTrack 2.0 include:

  • Increased Accessibility – Previously available through a file transfer protocol (FTP) site, ThreatTrack 2.0 data streams are now accessible via a REST API, providing customers with direct, real-time access to continuously updated information. Users no longer have to struggle with large FTP downloads to get their hands on malware data essential to their organization.
  • Real-Time Accessibility – ThreatTrack 2.0 data streams are updated in near real-time to provide customers with immediate access to information about the latest malware threats.
  • Enhanced Customization – Through the REST API, customers can now also tailor data retrieval to their own personal needs. They can customize the type and amount of data they download to ensure they are analyzing only the information that is pertinent to their organization.
  • Flexible Formatting – Users can now select from XML, JSON or TXT formatting options so data streams are easily integrated into their products.

GFI ThreatTrack 2.0 is available now. The ThreatTrack Intelligent Monitoring Essentials Suite is comprised of three real-time data streams encompassing the most critical threat intelligence for defending enterprise networks: the Malicious HTTP Block, Suspicious HTTP Alert and Malicious HTTP Phishing streams. ThreatTrack Essentials Suite customers looking for more in-depth intelligence can choose from four powerful add-ons: Dynamic Behavioral Analysis, Border Patrol, Malware Executable Repository and Malware Traffic streams.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
