MetaFlows Announces On-demand Sandbox resources in Amazon Cloud

By CIOReview | Friday, August 14, 2015

LAS VEGAS, NV: MetaFlows, a network security solutions provider, announces the ability to deploy a distributed virtual sandbox using Amazon EC2 cloud for MetaFlows Security System (MSS) users. MetaFlows' virtual sandbox spawns Amazon EC2 instances. Once the EC2 instance detonates the sample, it is wiped out and recycled. This new MSS feature enables users to run exploits exclusively in a virtual environment thus providing unlimited, on-demand sandbox resources.

Exploit can be submitted to the sandbox directly by the user or automatically by the network-level monitoring performed by MSS. MSS extracts content from network stream by either monitoring physical networks or by performing deep packet inspection in Amazon EC2 cloud.

Virtual sandboxing and other innovative features such as advanced multi-session IDS analysis, real-time correlation of collaborative intelligence and Soft IPS are the prominent factors helping the company to surge adoption and boost revenues of MSS. Cost effective solutions from MetaFlows’s cost effective solutions effectively detect and prevent malware and other network-based attacks.

“Sandboxing is a key weapon against malware, and users need flexibility and scale to use it properly,” says Frank Dickson, Research Director, Frost & Sullivan. “By initiating sandboxes in the Amazon EC2 cloud, MetaFlows offers sandbox resources on the fly without the expense of local servers.”
