BluVector Extends File-based and Fileless Malware Detection to Cloud-based Email Services

today introduced its latest additions to BluVector®
, including support for Office 365 and Google Mail, designed
to help mid- to large-sized organizations detect file-based and fileless
malware attacks through their cloud-based email services.

In a recent interview
on the state of the cloud office, experts cite that while the cloud
email adoption rate is rising, it is constrained by concerns about
security and privacy. Those who fail to move to the cloud will be
negatively impacted by the increased cost and lack of access to the
innovative technologies, which can help to advance the business.

With BluVector Cortex 3.1, organizations can fast track adoption of
cloud office capabilities with significantly reduced risk associated
with phishing, spearphishing, ransomware and credential-phishing
attacks. Organizations can use the power of artificial intelligence,
machine learning and speculative execution to sense and respond to
threats in real time.

The following are new features and benefits of the latest version of
BluVector Cortex:

  • Cloud Email Analysis BluVector Cortex can analyze
    malware attacks from any cloud-based IMAP email service, including
    Office 365, Google for Business and other major providers.
  • New Event Reporting Dashboard – Automatically translate the
    rich network traffic data generated by BluVector Cortex into easily
    understandable insights.
  • Dynamic Malware Analysis in the Cloud – Users will be able to
    automate secondary analysis of flagged malware content. By providing
    additional context associated with the inner workings of the captured
    malware, analysts can now gain a deeper understanding of the threat.
  • Detection of Malicious VBScripts – BluVector Cortex now
    examines all files to look for and analyze embedded VBScript, an
    increasingly common attack vector. The detection capability comes as a
    new classifier of the patented Machine Learning Engine (MLE) of
    BluVector Cortex.
  • Built-In Threat Intelligence – An improved intelligence feed
    provides context around suspicious events and helps identify lateral
    movements post breach.

“While email continues to be the primary method of communication for
organizations, it also continues to be the weakest link in security. As
such, threat actors commonly target their attacks on email and are
getting better at deceiving users,” said Travis Rosiek, CTO, BluVector.
“As our customers continue to shift to hybrid IT and email environments,
we can give them the confidence they need to address the complex threat
landscape on any platform.”
