CUPERTINO, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TaaSERA, Inc., a new information security technology company focused on advanced behavioral malware detection, today announced that analysis of the TaaSERA Threat Feed, the industry's most dynamic real-time malware threat reporting service, is now available to the public as part of regular threat intelligence briefings from HP Security Research.
The TaaSERA Threat Feed Service focuses solely on malware, particularly malicious sites that TaaSERA has identified as actively propagating malware. This service can be used to enhance enterprise remediation processes through:
- Blocking connections to stop downloads from malicious sites;
- Identifying individual or hosted machines infected with malware; or
- Strategic insight into the geographies and types of malware targeting specific sectors, such as financial institutions or government.
TaaSERA's Threat Feed, which HP Security Research leverages today in its threat briefings, already contains more than 200,000 malware IP addresses and offers insight into the location of infected machines and the industrial sectors they are attacking.
"Our malware threat feed grows at a rate of approximately 3,000 new malicious sites per day," said Srinivas Kumar, CTO, TaaSERA. "Amazingly, we identify more than 10,000 new sites per day, but we filter out the noise of dormant sites that ceased generating malicious traffic, which demonstrates how quickly cyber criminals change IP addresses to launch attacks."
"TaaSERA's malware Threat Feed is one of the most dynamic and innovative in the industry," said Jacob West, CTO of HP Enterprise Security Products. "HP Security Research is mandated to bring actionable security intelligence to market. Our new threat briefings, which include an audio podcast and accompanying report, leverage TaaSERA's malware threat intelligence to give the community timely insight into malware outbreaks and how they impact organizations today."
TaaSERA's malware behavior detection solutions have been built upon core technology used by a number of leading government agencies that identify previously unseen attacks as they happen. Unlike technologies that review signatures or other historical data, or assess potential vulnerabilities and analyze the impact of malware programs in non-production environments, TaaSERA's software solutions leverage patented behavior detection capabilities to highlight the emergence of previously unseen attacks as they are being carried out – providing organizations with the specific information necessary to adjust defenses and mitigate vulnerabilities targeted by today's sophisticated threats.
