PolySwarm Provides Latest Enhancement to Cyber Triage Incident Response Solution
PolySwarm, a threat intelligence and detection marketplace for identifying new and emergent malware, will now be used by Cyber Triage™, a tool for rapid incident response by technology company BasisTech.
Cyber Triage makes it easy for cyber first responders to quickly and confidently determine if a suspect machine has been compromised. PolySwarm will be used by Cyber Triage to help better determine if a machine communicated with malicious servers.
Dr. Brian Carrier, senior vice president and CTO at BasisTech, has been on the front lines of the fight against cybercrime for over two decades. “Our goal with Cyber Triage has always been to help every cyber first responder identify threats as rapidly and effectively as possible,” says Carrier. “The only way to make good on this mission is to partner with the most innovative tech companies in our space. PolySwarm’s innovative marketplace allows us to get broad coverage of host-based threat intelligence, so it only made sense to bring them on board.”
By enabling first responders to quickly determine if a host is compromised, Cyber Triage improves its customers’ ability to prioritize systems and make informed decisions. For over twenty years, BasisTech has enabled businesses and governments to tackle some of their toughest problems and expose cybercrime. Teams can deploy Cyber Triage from their IT infrastructure to scan memory, analyze the hard drive and browser history to generate information about the potentially compromised machine including if it contains malware, and is commuting with bad IPs.
“During an investigation, it’s really challenging to identify which systems and users have been compromised,” says Steve Bassi, CEO and founder of PolySwarm. “Cyber Triage is helping a very important segment of the population do just that with ease-of-use that is rare in the security sector. BasisTech’s use of PolySwarm is a great example of the collaborative nature of our industry and demonstrates how everyone wins when the expert security community is connected to the front-line via Cyber Triage and PolySwarm. At the end of the day, we want to make tools accessible and effective for the front-line folks who actually stop and prosecute cybercrime.”
Enterprises, MSSPs and security companies can use PolySwarm to enhance their own security solutions, or use directly for detection and file reputation. PolySwarm gathers intelligence from a crowdsourced marketplace of AV companies and niche research-driven security scanning engines in real-time to detect threats and provide its users with intelligence.
PolySwarm is a threat intelligence and detection marketplace where anti-malware software, authored by antivirus companies and specialized security experts, compete to detect threats, millions of times per day. With a global force of security experts and antivirus companies combining at a single access point, accuracy and early detection are rewarded, and enterprises get better intel and detection.
