Mandiant® Launches New Threat Intelligence Offering
SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Mandiant, the leader in advanced threat detection and response
solutions, today announced the launch of Mandiant Intelligence Center™,
a new offering that enables security teams to access Mandiant's threat
and malware intelligence. The Mandiant Intelligence Center provides
customers with the analytical tools and contextual analysis to help
customers better understand high priority threats so they can identify
and stop attacks.
"Too often, when new threats emerge security teams are left to piece
together disconnected fragments of intelligence and draw their own
conclusions about what actions they should take," said Dan McWhorter,
managing director of threat intelligence at Mandiant. "We created the
Mandiant Intelligence Center as a resource for assessing threats and
contextualizing them, so that users can access Mandiant's intelligence
and expertise to help inform their response."
The Mandiant Intelligence Center draws on proprietary intelligence
gathered from hundreds of thousands of hours on the front lines
responding to large-scale intrusions by the most advanced threat groups.
Subscribers will benefit from our unparalleled visibility into threats
and gain access to the same intelligence database that Mandiant uses to
respond and defend against the most advanced threat actors so they can
better defend themselves and reduce the impact of compromises.
The Mandiant Intelligence Center provides:
Analysis of High-Profile Threats. Subscribers can access timely
analysis of new high-profile threat events as they arise. Mandiant's
intelligence analysts include an event synopsis along with context
about the specific threat based on Mandiant's proprietary intelligence.
Automated Malware Analysis. Subscribers obtain detailed
analysis and context for malware submitted via the Center. Analysis is
provided by email and includes detailed static and dynamic analysis
reporting, code base comparison of submitted malware, details on which
major anti-virus vendors currently detect it, and information on
Mandiant's familiarity with the malware, such as use by certain hreat
groups. The Center also provides a high-fidelity Indicator of
Compromise (IOC) related to the malware.
Profiles of Advanced Threat Groups. Detailed profiles of
advanced threat groups include their latest tactics, techniques and
procedures (TTPs), plus analysis and insights into targeted industries
and characteristics of the data pursued by each group.
Domain and IP Analysis. Subscribers can submit a domain or IP
to the Center and receive information and detailed context from
Mandiant's comprehensive intelligence database. Users learn whether
Mandiant has linked it to known threat actors and when we most
recently encountered it.
Trend Analysis. In-depth reports written by Mandiant
intelligence analysts highlight emerging trends and analysis of
ongoing changes in the threat landscape.
Safe File Download. Enter the URL of a suspected malicious
file, and it will be downloaded to the Center and transmitted to you
safely to avoid the risk of compromising your own devices or exposing
