Future Acquisitions Recorded To Boost Intelligence Cloud Coverage Via Malware Analysis
The intelligence leader delivers high-performance, automated malware analysis tools to provide defenders with an intelligence advantage in the fight against malware.
Fremont, CA: The malware analysis market comprises businesses (organizations, sole proprietors, and partnerships) that sell malware analysis solutions and services that are helpful in processing and analyzing suspicious files' activity and intentions. Malware analysis seeks to locate and eliminate any potential risks. This practical approach enables analysts to employ malware analysis tools to evaluate the operations, objectives, and potential effects of the infection. Individual malware samples are examined and assessed, typically in a controlled environment called a sandbox.
Recorded Future, the largest global intelligence firm, announced today the acquisition of Hatching, the pioneer in malware analysis. Hatching expands Recorded Future's intelligence coverage with high-performance malware analysis, providing clients with increased insight into live malware campaigns in the wild, improved attribution, and a key advantage against adversaries who use malicious software to disrupt operations. The acquisition adds to Recorded Future's aim of providing the most complete intelligence, enabling organizations to take quick, decisive action to dissuade and disrupt the opponent.
As the malware threat grows, Hatching provides Triage, a breakthrough malware sandboxing technology that enables enterprises to research automated, high-volume malware. Triage, designed for performance and intended to scale with its clients' analytical needs, allows unprecedented scale for a sandboxing service.
Hatching Triage will be incorporated into the Recorded Future ecosystem, enabling clients to identify malware and get a verdict based on various criteria, including Insikt Group signatures, before being correlated and enriched in the Recorded Future Intelligence Cloud. Hatching's Triage data will become a useful data source for Recorded Future, and all clients will gain from intelligence that includes a global picture of malware trends, targets, and references. The combination provides Recorded Future clients with more comprehensive intelligence available for detecting, preventing, and responding to external threats, as well as mitigating their impact on their enterprises.
