Norman's Advanced Threat Management Solution, featuring Norman Threat Discovery, now Offers Real-Time Analysis and Defense to Protect the Enterprise Against Advanced Persistent Threats; Integrated Solution Available Starting October 31
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) OSLO -- In response to growing concerns from the worldwide Security and IT community over the proliferation of cyber threats, Norman AS, a global leader in threat discovery, malware forensics and analysis, and industrial control system protection, today announced the availability of Norman Network Threat Discovery (NTD), which supplements the Norman Network Protection (NNP) with real-time threat data from its Malware Analyzer G2 (MAG2).
The Norman Malware Analyzer G2 provides industry-leading Hybrid SandBoxing, technology that enables IT and security teams to run suspicious artifacts through the award-winning Norman SandBox, and concurrently analyze the code in Norman's virtualized IntelliVM modules. Norman's Network Protection solution is a cyber attack discovery system that sits on the network and automatically detects and collects malicious files that may have slipped past traditional defenses. The malicious code in these files may then be analyzed by the forensics team using Norman Malware Analyzer G2, and fingerprinted, so that NNP automatically blocks subsequent instances of the code. With the new Network Threat Discovery feature, MAG2 and NNP are combined to provide the enterprise with a complete solution for discovery, analysis and protection against malicious code.
"Some corporate and government response teams see as many as 100,000 malicious software files in a single day," noted Christophe Birkeland, Norman AS 's Chief Technology Officer. "The combination of Norman Network Protection and Malware Analyzer G2, featuring Norman Network Threat Discovery, provides these teams the power to instantly respond to advanced persistent threats (APTs) in a low cost, highly scalable solution that addresses today's most aggressive cyber threats. In addition, these solutions enable any organization to meet regulatory mandates for security technologies in government, the financial sector and other markets where compliance is an important issue."
Gartner recently recognized Norman as a Top 10 "Vendor to Watch" in their "Market Trends, Advanced Threat Protection Appliances, Worldwide, 2012," report, where they specifically cite Norman's hybrid sandboxing technique and ability to correlate results with network traffic behaviors. Gartner Research Director Lawrence Pingree, notes that "Large-enterprise and upper-midsize business segments in the United States and Europe continue to drive the greatest demand for advanced threat protection appliances."
