ValidEdge Introduces Advanced Malware Analyzer with Repair Capability


MIS 1200R generates custom repair tool that saves IT organizations hours of work to clean infected systems

San Jose, CA, April 22, 2011 --(PR.com)-- ValidEdge, the leading malware analysis solutions company, today announced a new malware analyzer with unique capabilities. The ValidEdge MIS 1200R is the industry’s first malware analyzer that also produces a repair tool for all new and unknown malware in real time.

Cyber threats from malware are ever increasing. It is a challenge for most organizations to know if, and when, they are under attack. Validedge malware analysis appliances help organizations detect and analyze these threats in real time to fully understand who is attacking them and how. The new repair capability sets ValidEdge further apart from other anti-malware solutions in the industry. Available today, the MIS 1200R repair tool saves IT organizations hours of work they would otherwise invest to re-image infected systems.

“After demonstrating our leadership in deep analysis of any new or unknown malware in seconds, we are adding this critical repair capability,” said Gurjot Singh, CEO of ValidEdge. “The repair tool is the next step for making the MIS 1200R an integral part of a security operations center.”

The custom repair tool produced by the MIS 1200R for each specific malware can be easily applied by any IT administrator to an infected system. The tool reverses the system’s characteristics back to the original state by cleaning up the registry and adding or deleting system files that have been deleted or modified. The repair tool can be applied remotely by an administrator to heal any infected system in the network.

About ValidEdge MIS 1200R
The MIS 1200R processes large volumes of samples, in addition to analyzing unknown malware samples in seconds. The MIS 1200R incorporates several innovative analysis engines for classification, unpacking, reverse engineering, and combined dynamic and static analysis to fully reveal the current and potential intention of unknown malware.

The MIS 1200R provides a secure environment to expose malware, allowing responders to fully grasp the malware's intention and learn what it was trying to target. It will also identify any logic bombs hidden in the malware waiting for a trigger to cause damage at a later time. Once the new malware has been identified, security professionals receive several detailed reports about the behavior of the malware. With this information, responders are better equipped to clean zombie PCs and heal compromised systems. Organizations under malware attack no longer need to wait for signature updates. Using ValidEdge appliances enables organizations to make the right policy and security improvements to further strengthen their organization from future threats, in real time.
