SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- TrapX, provider of the fastest growing sensor-based HoneyGrid in the world, is providing the cyber security industry a free tool to help enterprises protect themselves against never-before detected malware and advance persistent threats (APT) leveraging TrapX's unique Adaptive Defense capabilities. TrapX's Threat Inspector is a proven anti-malware solution that helped identify the recently announced "Zombie Zero," a highly sophisticated, polymorphic advanced persistent malware targeting the shipping and logistics industry.
Unlike most legacy security technologies, TrapX Adaptive Defense capabilities adapt to threats in real time, to counter today's ever-changing types of attacks. TrapX, formally known as CyberSense, conducts powerful real-time analytics and threat intelligence of the network while providing full incident lifecycle management encompassing detection, remediation, and prosecution. TrapX Threat Inspector is an advanced stand-alone memory dump analysis process based on the Open Source Volatility package [https://code.google.com/p/volatility/] . This free tool lets organizations inspect memory of virtual machines, run forensics on a potentially infected workstation within private networks using predefined rules and commands to analyze the memory dump file from the workstation, and store analysis outputs on local databases. Through Threat Inspector's dashboard, users can view trends, reports, and live events occurring within their networks and perimeters.
While security futurists have long favored honeypots as a way to actively defend the network, TrapX's Threat Inspector has moved to the next level with a virtualized HoneyGrid platform that not only emulates hundreds of services across the network but also senses hostile scans and spins up targeted honeypots where they're most needed in order to identify cybercriminal or nation-state attacks. Organizations can swiftly extract the forensic data and reveal exactly what the binaries are designed to without the delay of a full manual reverse engineering effort.
