Zero-Day Threat Blocking Improvements in Malware Analysis Toolkit

Sunbelt Software : 24 March, 2010  (New Product)
CWSandbox from Sunbelt Software released at version 3.0 with behaviour analysis technology improvements providing enhanced capability for the detection of zero-day threats
Sunbelt Software has announced the availability of Sunbelt CWSandbox version 3.0, the industry's premier automated dynamic malware analysis tool. CWSandbox makes use of unique behaviour analysis technology for the identification of malicious threats like PDF exploits, fake media players and other socially engineered attacks against enterprise or government networks. This advanced offering is generated by the world-class research efforts of SunbeltLabs, the malware research and analysis division of Sunbelt Software.

CWSandbox v3.0 enables security analysts and incident response teams to analyse the behaviour of suspected files by executing code inside a controlled and monitored environment. It records all malicious activity including system changes, network traffic and memory dumps. One of the key features now in CWSandbox is the groundbreaking, proprietary Digital Behaviour Traits (DBT) technology, which intelligently interprets the behaviour of any file, document or website to determine automatically whether it is malicious. This feature is critical in the effort to quickly discover new and emerging malware that has not yet been uncovered by traditional antivirus tools.

CWSandbox gives users the ability to safely analyse virtually any Windows application or file including infected documents, malicious URLs, custom applications and scripts in Flash ads. It also gives researchers the ability to compare multiple data sources for differences and similarities, and to send malware samples to multiple sandbox configurations and centrally manage the process. Unlike other malware analysis tools on the market today, CWSandbox provides true automation to analyse in bulk and save crucial time.

By simulating the way in which a user would interact with a rogue application, CWSandbox automates what is otherwise a manual process. Rather than analysing new threats on a case-by-case basis, security researchers can now simultaneously compare how malware operates in multiple environments.

"Automated threat analysis is essential to organisations that are targeted by malware writers with brand new viruses that have not yet been categorised or catalogued by traditional antivirus solutions," said Chad Loeven, vice president and general manager for SunbeltLabs.
