VMRay Analyzer Adds Sophos URL Threat Intelligence Service for Enhanced Detection of Malicious Websites

Our core belief at VMRay is to provide DFIR Specialists and Incident Responders with the most comprehensive analysis on the market. Since the introduction of our Reputation Engine in VMRay Analyzer 2.0, we’ve delivered a comprehensive one-two punch for analysts to quickly diagnose and triage malicious files. Today, we are excited to announce the integration of Sophos’ URL Threat Intelligence Service into our Reputation Engine. This integration gives DFIR Specialists and Incident Responders access to enhanced threat intelligence on millions of malicious URLs and infected websites.

This combined solution delivers detection of high-risk threats such as malware, phishing, fraud, exploits, botnets, and spyware, right at the domain level. The secret to managing cyber risks proactively – and protecting businesses from data loss – is to understand where such cyber threats come from. Among other sources, the growing volume of infected websites continues to remain a major concern for most IT security managers and organizations.

VMRay Analyzer’s agentless hypervisor-based approach to dynamic analysis helps customers detect evasive threats proactively and with ease, allowing them to avert greater risk from ransomware, polymorphic malware and other evasive threats. Sophos URL Threat Intelligence Service, with its real-time lookup, expands detection coverage by providing access to a broader range of the latest detection data on millions of malicious URLs.

We share a vision with Sophos for next-generation cyber security that’s simple to use and manage. By integrating Sophos’ rich and comprehensive URL lookup service with VMRay Analyzer, we reduce the time to detection of millions of malicious and infected websites and URLs.
