Kaspersky has released an advanced security solution for businesses to detect targeted attacks and other malicious actions.
The company says that this security platform will allow businesses to detect abnormal and potentially malicious activity within a highly integrated system, including complex attacks at any stage, even when no malicious activity is taking place and will also help process suspicious events via different engines which includes its advanced sandbox and target attack analyzer for a final verdict.
According to Kaspersky, the advanced sandbox provides a safe, isolated and virtualized environment for analyzing suspicious objects and detecting their intent, while the targeted attack analyzer utilizes data processing and machine learning technologies to assess and combine verdicts from different analysis engines. This is where the final decision to alert the staff is made.
Christian A. Christiansen, IDC Program Vice President, Security Products says, “Kaspersky lab has vast experience in threat intelligence and a long history of discovering some of the world’s most high-profile APTs. IDC’s Specialized Threat Analysis and Protection Market (STAP) quantifies the opportunity for countering APTs and targeted attacks.
“IDC believes the market will grow to over $3 billion by 2019, with a 5-year CAGR of 28%. This high growth rate is driven by significant adoption of STAP products to address the growing need for advanced threat detection.”
Garry Kondakov, Chief Business Officer, Kaspersky Lab, explains that the company is entering into a new category of security products with this new innovation saying, “Today, we announce our entry into a new category of security products, one that we believe will define the future of the IT security industry.”
Kondakov further stated, “When businesses face adversary with the skill, knowledge and determination to overcome the many existing security technologies, they need knowledge of possible attack vector details of the indicators of compromise, and the ability to distinguish normal operations from malicious activity.
According to the CBO of Kaspersky, “this is an immense undertaking which requires strong security expertise combined with technology that is capable of spotting a criminal act in the avalanche of daily activity in a large corporation. This is the challenge that is being addressed with the Kasperky anti target attack platform, together with the security services aimed at sharing security intelligence with our customers faster than ever before.”
