Seculert Adds 'Elastic Sandbox' to Simulate Malware Over Time, Geographic Locations

New Elastic Sandbox Enables Malware to Be Analyzed Over Long Time Periods and Geographic Locations

Seculert, an Israel-based provider of cloud-based threat detection solutions, has released of a new version of their service, featuring Elastic Sandbox technology, an updated API, and a new user interface.

This new release comes just after the company announced a $10 million Series B round of funding led by Sequoia Capital.

The new “Elastic Sandbox” is where malware is introduced, examined and profiled, the company said. Using the Elastic Sandbox, security teams analyzing malware samples can now select increments of time and different geographic locations by which to analyze their sample.

"Our Elastic Sandbox is a natural progression for our cloud-based SaaS solution; continuing our dedication to research, intelligence and protection from malware and advanced threats. It is the only truly 'elastic' sandbox available that allows malware to evolve over long periods of time, and not just run for a couple of minutes," says Seculert CTO Aviv Raff.

Additionally, with the new API, Seculert customers will be able to better visualize the API calls and data manipulation. Through easy integration of the API and pre-existing on-premises products, customers can transform their current security defenses into a complete advanced threat protection solution.

The company also launched a new user interface that was designed to be more intuitive and put data about advanced threats instantly at the user's fingertips.

Existing customers will automatically be upgraded to the new dashboard and API.

Seculert was founded in 2011 by security industry veterans Dudi Matot (CEO), Aviv Raff (CTO), and Alex Milstein (COO), and has R&D offices based in Israel, with sales offices located in the United States and Europe.

In late June, Seculert uncovered details of “PinkStats”, malware used in a string of attacks by several Chinese-speaking groups over the last four years to target different worldwide organizations and nation-states.
