Norman ASA has updated its Malware Analyzer G2 platform to enhance its ability to fight malware.
The Malware Analyzer G2 platform is designed to help analysts inspect malware effectively. In version 3, Norman has included multiple IntelliVM modules to enable multiple pieces of malware to be inspected in parallel as well as the ability to analyze almost any Windows application or file. The product delivers IntelliVM plugins in Python scripts for development and extension of each analysis, according to the company.
“Under Norman’s Advanced Threat Management framework, the automated Malware Analyzer G2 has been powerfully architected to be configured to solve the most pressing security issues facing enterprises or government agencies today,” said Christophe Birkeland, Norman ASA’s Chief Technology Officer, in a statement.
Norman’s solution also takes advantage of what the company calls Hybrid SandBoxing, which means analysts can run malware samples through the emulated Norman SandBox while analyzing the code in the virtualized IntelliVM modules.
In addition to the update to Malware Analyzer G2, the company today also announced the availability of Norman Network Threat Discovery with Advanced Threat Discovery Engine, which can be integrated into the Norman Malware Analyzer G2 architecture. The appliance is a cyber-attack discovery system that sits at the perimeter and detects malicious files that may have slipped past other defenses. Working with Malware Analyzer G2, the appliance then rates the suspicious files using a risk score and alerts the organization of the problem, the company said.
