Symantec Security Response team backs thread analysis service
Posted on 2-Nov-2007 18:34. | Tags Filed under: News.



Symantec Corp. has announced the Managed Threat Analysis (MTA), a new service designed to provide custom protection and analysis of malware and other security risks to help enterprises defend against data theft.

Symantec Global Services’ Security Response expert analysts will review sample malware or other suspicious code submitted by an organisation and deliver a custom, in-depth incident analysis report developed for the organisation’s specific needs and risk profile within 96 hours of incident initiation.

The Managed Threat Analysis report will help businesses understand the implications and impact of the specific malware on their systems, outline a remediation strategy and tools to safely remove the threat, and document recommendations to mitigate future attacks and improve their overall security posture. This information will help enterprises, such as financial institutions or government agencies, comply with regulatory requirements that mandate notification within a certain timeframe if any data has been compromised. Incident submissions are accepted on a 24x7 basis.

“The current security threat landscape is marked by sophisticated, targeted attacks that attempt to steal intellectual property and digital assets, which could tarnish an organisation’s brand,” said Mike Mulville, senior director of product management, Symantec Managed Security Services. “Managed Threat Analysis provides a proactive outsourced solution that supplements organisations’ threat intelligence to ultimately ensure greater confidence in protecting against today’s threats and future security risks.”

Managed Threat Analysis leverages the Symantec Security Response expertise to offer fast and accurate analysis and removal of malicious code to help customers reduce their time and costs associated with a specific security incident. Symantec Security Response experts gather threat intelligence from the Symantec Global Intelligence Network, a worldwide collection of millions of vendor-neutral security data sources that provides the foundation for Symantec’s expert research and analysis, enabling delivery of proactive notification of security threats.
