A new perspective that’s changing the field of play.
Our technical competence has allowed MRG Effitas to advance the sandbox detection field. We have developed our own new techniques whereby malware can detect sandboxes, replicating how malware in the wild would behave in this respect.
Malware Analysis Sandbox Testing
Our customers were able to protect against these threats before they were exploited in the wild.
Malware analysis sandboxes are used to run malicious samples in a controlled environment. By inspecting the sample behaviour, the sandbox can decide whether the sample is malicious or not. Attackers commonly try to detect and avoid malware analysis sandboxes. In our tests, we check how good the sandbox is at detecting malware, and how resilient it is against malware analysis sandbox bypass techniques.
Case Study: Webroot
Webroot has worked with MRG Effitas over the past several years due to their unique capacity to test efficacy functionality that goes beyond simply blocking a threat. While Effitas does understand that prevention is important, they were the first to introduce testing that looked at detection of specific malicious behaviors by using malware simulation tools to replicate what behaviors were being encountered in the wild.Read more
