Comodo Forensic Analysis: Deep Malware Analysis That Stops Malware in Their Tracks
Malware analysis is more essential than ever - every single day, cybersecurity researchers discover 250,000 strains of malware. Every year, threat labs collect over 100,000,000 million new strains of malware. The situation is dire and experts believe that no company is safe from infection and hacking. It is only a matter of time before a hacker penetrates an enterprises' defenses, plants malware on the company system that will serve as a backdoor for an attack, and breach the databases holding important customer information.
One of the key issues exacerbating vulnerabilities is that traditional antiviruses are ill-equipped to catch zero-day malware because of a lack of advanced malware analysis tools. Antiviruses, at best, catch only around 40% of malware. And these are known malware and not the newer strains that activate from seemingly harmless Trojan files. This is why advanced malware analysis is important.
Since the point of failure is lackluster malware analysis, the best response you can do against these threats is to use a deeper level of scanning called a forensic analysis. Comodo is offering a free application called Comodo Forensic Analysis to help you and your tech team with malware analysis and catch these threats to nip the issue in the bud before they damage your computer or your network.
Comodo Forensic Analysis comes with partner services you can install as an add-on to malware analysis. By coupling these services with malware analysis, your team will be able to remove the threats after the scan identifies them:
1. Comodo Antivirus
The Comodo Forensic Analysis tool is for deep malware analysis but to actively remove malicious applications, we suggest installing the Comodo Antivirus. The Comodo Antivirus removes 99.99% of known threats and received the honor of being the best antivirus for Windows PCs for February 2018 from AV-Test. Combining its strength with the malware analysis tool will help ensure virus removal.
2. Comodo Dome
In case you want a more layered solution for your enterprise on top of your malware analysis tool, there's Comodo Dome. Comodo Dome serves as a proactive solution against emerging threats by providing a modular cloud-delivered secure web platform. It combines several security solutions like a firewall, email protection, malware and virus removal in one package.
3. Comodo Antispam
Malware like ransomware penetrates the system through emails. Malware engineers disguise them as links or as harmless downloadable files which dupe employees into downloading them on your system. The best method of Trojan virus removal is for spam, which serves as vehicles for malware, to never enter your employees' inboxes in the first place. Comodo Antispam provides a layered and robust security solution against spam and will sync well with your malware analysis scan.
Aside from the stand-alone malware analysis and these add-on services, Comodo Forensic Analysis employs one more powerful malware analysis tool. When Comodo Forensic Analysis tags a file as unknown, it uploads the file to Comodo's Valkyrie servers. The Valkyrie service aids in virus removal by running these files through a battery of tests. These tests are meant to coax out the behaviors of these files in aid of malware analysis. You will see a report of these tests on the Comodo Forensic Analysis interface.
Of course, malware analysis can only go so far if it doesn't scan into different layers of a system. The programmers behind the Comodo Forensic Analysis Scanning Tool designed the software for large-scale malware analyses. It has several malware analysis modes to help an IT or network security team identify threats for virus removal. First, the Comodo Forensic Analysis tool has an active directory malware analysis mode to scan all the computers in a domain. Second, the Comodo Forensic Analysis tool has a workgroup malware analysis mode. It can also scan by network addresses. Finally, the Comodo Forensic Analysis tool has a local computer malware analysis mode for every single computer in the network.
By adding a malware analysis tool such as Comodo Forensic Analysis, you are fortifying your cyber defenses against looming threats of zero-day malware attacks. Don't let threat detection be your single point of failure. Relying on standard antiviruses can only get you so far. Get Comodo Forensic Analysis as your malware analysis tool and you'll be able to halt these malware attacks even before a hacker hatches them.
