Invincea Launches Research Edition, a Free Malware Discovery and Analysis Solution for Data Forensics and Incident Response (DF/IR) Teams

Provides DF/IR Community With Award-Winning Invincea FreeSpace Malware Containment and Detection Solution, Access to Invincea Threat Management Service for Crowdsourced Data Forensics and Analysis, an Advanced Malware Analysis Tool (CrowdSource) Developed

FAIRFAX, VA and NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/19/14 -- Invincea, Inc., the market leader in the use of secure virtual containers for user protection against advanced cybersecurity threats, today announced the availability of Invincea Research Edition -- a free malware discovery and analysis solution for the Data Forensics and Incident Response (DF/IR) community. Joining Invincea in this announcement is ThreatGRID, provider of the first unified malware analysis and threat intelligence solution that is revolutionizing how organizations use accurate and context-rich intelligence to defend against advanced cyber-attacks.

Invincea Research Edition is a free solution offered to professionals in the global DF/IR community. It includes licenses of Invincea FreeSpace™ -- which creates a secure virtual container around web browsers and their plug-ins -- PDFs and documents such as Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint and features advanced behavioral-based detection proven to spot known, unknown and zero-day malware. With Invincea FreeSpace, DF/IR teams can investigate potential wateringhole attacks, discover drive-by download sites and analyze suspicious email links, PDF and other document attachments simply by visiting URLs or opening those documents. When an exploit is detected, forensic information related to the malware is sent to a cloud-hosted instance of Invincea Management Service (IMS) where threat intelligence is crowdsourced. DF/IR teams will analyze the findings inside IMS -- including details on command and control, timelines of attack, registry changes, dropped files and more.

Participants will also benefit from the community and body of threat research work of other researchers around the world contributed with identities anonymized. One-click integration with ThreatGRID provides deeper contextual analysis by allowing participants to chart the origins of the thwarted attack, conduct advanced search, pivoting and correlation with any and all analyzed artifacts against the entire ThreatGRID database, understand past uses of identified command and control infrastructure and more. The Invincea Research Edition release also includes CrowdSource, a tool for malware analysis developed by Invincea Labs presented at BlackHat 2013. CrowdSource is a command line tool for rapid and scalable malware analysis requiring no expertise in malware analysis. Given an arbitrary executable, CrowdSource will tell you the capabilities of that executable within seconds via a command line utility. It leverages web-sourced annotations of code and machine learning to predict capabilities within code-based on the wisdom of crowds in natural language form. In short, it makes high volume triage of malware executables scalable with minimal DF/IR expertise required.

"As a company, one of Invincea's core values is to be an active and valuable contributor to the security community," said Anup Ghosh, Founder and CEO of Invincea. "We have demonstrated this through our continuous discoveries and disclosures of attacks in the wild, through the pioneering work we do at Invincea Labs and now with the free release of Invincea Research Edition to the Data Forensics and Incident Response community. We are proud to provide this solution to the community -- we know it will benefit individual researchers and the ISAC communities -- and over time, we will continue to add to its capabilities as users contribute to the community by using these free tools."

"We're excited to participate with Invincea in the roll-out of Invincea Research Edition," said Dov Yoran, Co-Founder and CEO of ThreatGRID. "This collaboration will extend our rich global and historical context that we provide to SOC analysts, threat intelligence analysts, incident responders and reverse engineers, empowering them with deep, accurate knowledge on threats to speed up investigations, proactively defend against advanced threats and maximize the value of their existing investments."

This announcement further positions Invincea as the market leader in advanced malware detection, prevention and analysis. The Invincea platform, which includes the Invincea FreeSpace user protection software suite and IMS -- a cloud hosted management and threat intelligence service -- that delivers proven protection from malware whether it is advanced or conventional and whether the exploits are known, unknown or zero-days. It does so by moving the most highly targeted applications on endpoints -- the web browsers, PDF reader and Office suite into secure virtual containers on the user's device. When a user trips across a malicious website or content whether via a spear-phish, web-based drive-by or wateringhole, Invincea contains the attack, terminates the malware, collects forensics on the threat and forwards to the IMS. The collected forensics from each attack is then fused with third party and threat intelligence to understand the attack type and adversarial profile behind the attacks.

Invincea's software is now deployed in more than 15,000 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.
