Productivity: Where staff resources are stretched thin and senior-level expertise is in short supply, a VMRay solution helps SOC and IR teams increase everyone’s productivity. With powerful tools to guide and educate them, analysts can handle high volume of alerts, make faster, better-informed decisions and quickly grow both their insights into the alerts at hand, their skills and aggregate their own threat intelligence.
Efficiency: The increased efficiency of individual team members frees analysts to focus on the right alerts, more advanced challenges, such as deep-dive, manual investigations of complex threats or infrastructure improvements.
Automation: VMRay makes these gains possible by massively automating every stage of the analysis-detection-protection lifecycle, eliminating the need for human intervention wherever possible. With VMRay’s intuitive web interface, individuals can work productively at their current duties while continually mastering new skills and shortcuts. The result is enhanced team performance, faster resolution of threat incidents, and a cohesive work environment that fosters job satisfaction and inspires loyalty.
As malware executes in a safe environment withing the Platform, VMRay transparently monitors every interaction with the target machine, logging all control flow mechanisms, calling conventions and privilege levels. With complete and continuous visibility into malicious behavior, the SOC team can quickly and accurately triage the most urgent threats for further investigation or mitigation.
Being undetectable, VMRay’s dynamic analysis engine sees every interaction between malware and the target system— from simplistic, easily defeated attacks to insidious threats that “good enough” sandboxes aren’t good enough to catch. We are constantly working towards evasion-proof monitoring from the hypervisor level, which provides unique visibility and defense against evasion, because from the hypervisor we not only see malicious activity, but also every necessary detail. VMRay's vision is much deeper than that of traditional sandboxing technologies (hooking).
“We use a variety of tools for static and behavioral analysis. What our team loves about VMRay is the ability to quickly triage a lot of malicious samples by providing a wide variety of targets, configurations and applications out of the box.
We get a good sense of all the behavior, whether it uses an Office document or malicious PDF, and because VMRay foils many sandbox-evasion techniques and allows more malware to run.”
