Invincea Announces Expanded Threat Intelligence Integration in Invincea Management Service v2.0

Broadens Ecosystem of Threat Intelligence Partners With One-Click Product Integrations With ThreatGRID(R) and ReversingLabs

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and FAIRFAX, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/24/14 -- Invincea, the market leader in the use of secure virtual containers for user protection against advanced cybersecurity threats, today announced the expansion of its integrated threat intelligence network for Invincea Management Service (IMS) v2.0, available as a cloud-hosted offering or on-premises customer-managed virtual image. The new release gives enterprises the ability to fuse threat forensics reported from Invincea-protected endpoints with threat intelligence from an expanding partner network now including ThreatGRID® and ReversingLabs. The approach of collecting forensics from thwarted attacks to map the adversary creates a real-time feedback loop for enterprise security teams to protect users from targeted and incidental attacks while gaining a deeper understanding of the attack type and threat scape for their enterprise.

Invincea's "left of boom" approach to user protection -- a military and intelligence term that means to counter the adversary before compromise ("boom") happens -- places it in a unique position to detect and thwart spear-phishing, watering hole and drive-by web-based attacks whether advanced or conventional, whether they use known, unknown or zero-day exploits. Rich forensics collected from each thwarted attack are forwarded to the Invincea Management Service and then fused with threat intelligence to understand the attack type and adversarial profile behind the attacks. The approach allows security and incident response teams to move the security response process more to "left of boom."

With the launch of IMS v2.0, Invincea's customers benefit from enhanced functionality for enterprise management of their FreeSpace™ protected endpoints -- enabling management of core client configurations, the management of groups with different configurations, and providing a robust dashboard for visualizing blocked attacks. IMS v2.0 also provides security and incident response teams with real-time views into thwarted infections, timeline of attacks, file system and registry changes, new malicious process launches and botnet command and control networks. See the video that demonstrates these capabilities.

ThreatGRID's service empowers Invincea users to submit URLs and executable files for static and dynamic analysis directly from the IMS v2.0 interface. This integration enables Invincea users to chart the origins of the thwarted attack, identify criminal networks connected to various strains of malware, and understand past uses of identified command and control infrastructure and more. ThreatGRID analyzes hundreds of thousands of samples daily to provide security practitioners with context-rich intelligence. This intelligence is automatically delivered from ThreatGRID's repository of analyzed malware content, enabling security teams to quickly prioritize and fully investigate attacks, and proactively defend against future threats. For a look at Invincea's integration with ThreatGRID, see this video.

Reversing Labs' TitaniumCloud™ threat intelligence services enables Invincea-protected enterprises to check contained executable files and documents to understand their reputation and capabilities. For a look at Invincea's integration with ReversingLabs, see this video.

Invincea Management Service 2.0 also integrates with a number of other leading advanced technologies commonly deployed in Security Operations Centers (SOPs), including McAfee ePO, ArcSight, IBM Security QRadar, Splunk, RSA NetWitness and ISIGHT Partners. With the new integrations with ThreatGRID and ReversingLabs, Invincea is expanding its Threat Intelligence partner network to allow Invincea-protected enterprises the ability to fuse rich forensics from thwarted attacks contained by Invincea FreeSpace with the deep threat and analytical capabilities from both firms.

Invincea's software is now deployed in more than 11,000 organizations worldwide -- protecting dozens of industry verticals such as financial services, retail, energy, oil & gas, high tech, healthcare, retail, transportation, defense industrial, federal and state government agencies and companies. In June 2013, Invincea became the first advanced malware threat protection technology to ship straight from the factory on all Dell commercial devices under the brand name of Dell Data Protection | Protected Workspace. These machines include: Precision, Latitude, and Optiplex machines. The OEM deal announced by Dell is now shipping Invincea on more than 60 million devices globally over the next three years.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
