Linux Malware Analysis
Closing the Security Gap with VMRay’s Linux Sandboxing Functionality

Complete Malware Analysis: NO blindspots

In the realm of cybersecurity, Linux’s protection often fell through the cracks. Not anymore. Our new analysis feature addresses this long-standing challenge, ensuring Linux—just like Windows and macOS—is no longer left exposed.

The Linux Challenge in Cybersecurity

While Windows and macOS have long received attention in malware defense, Linux remained an outlier.
This has inadvertently turned it into a more enticing target for attackers leveraging advanced threats, such as ransomware, IoT malware (like Mirai), backdoors/RATs, and notorious cryptominers like Monero and XMRig. Traditional defenses like antivirus and EDR solutions have struggled to keep pace, especially with Linux-based threats.
