The Challenges:


Evolving threat landscape necessitates organizations to be proactive about the threats in the wild before seeing the occurrences in their organization. This includes analyzing recently discovered threats that targeted other organizations and have become public. Analyzing the most important threats and manually writing detection rules for them in YARA, SIGMA, etc to enhance the security is a challenging operation.

Research to prioritize detections is time consuming

Detection engineers face the challenge of prioritizing detections to be pivoted on based solely on MITRE ATT&CK. Actionable malware-centric threat intelligence is often needed but not available about the industry-specific threats

Unlock the power of advanced threat analysis with our cutting-edge analysis report. Discover the most unique and intriguing strings, process names and command lines to generate scalable detection rules with YARA, SIGMA or SNORT.
The built-in malware configuration extractors of VMRay can do the necessary de-obfuscation and family-specific data parsing. Build solid detections through correct classification which will allow you to move up on the pyramid of pain from only IOCs to TTPs.
Don’t miss out on embedded content from the most prolific malware samples any longer, no matter how deep they were hidden, including function call strings.
VMRay allows for the decryption of TLS/SSL traffic within a virtual machine without the need for a forged certificate. This provides full visibility into malware traffic, improving network-based detection capabilities. In addition to showing the decrypted traffic in the Network tab, VMRay provides an enriched PCAP file the user can download.
