Malware analysis is more fundamental than ever – each single day, cybersecurity analysts discover 250,000 strains of malware. Every year, threat labs collect over 100,000,000 million modern strains of malware. The situation is dire and experts believe that no company is secure from infection and hacking. It is only a matter of time before a hacker penetrates an enterprise’s defenses, plants malware on the company system that will serve as a backdoor for an assault, and breach the databases holding critical customer information.

One of the key issues exacerbating vulnerabilities is that traditional antiviruses are ill-equipped to catch zero-day malware because of a lack of advanced malware analysis tools. Antiviruses, at best, catch only around 40% of malware. And these are known malware and not the newer strains that activate from seemingly harmless Trojan files. This is why advanced malware analysis is important.

Since the point of failure is lackluster malware analysis, the best response you can do against these threats is to use a deeper level of scanning called a forensic analysis. Xcitium is offering a free application called Xcitium Forensic Analysis to help you and your tech team with malware analysis and catch these threats to nip the issue in the bud before they damage your computer or your network.

Xcitium Forensic Analysis comes with partner services you can install as an add-on to malware analysis. By coupling these services with malware analysis, your team will be able to remove the threats after the scan identifies them:

1. Xcitium Antivirus

The Xcitium Forensic Analysis tool is for deep malware analysis but to actively remove malicious applications, we suggest installing the Xcitium Antivirus. The Xcitium Antivirus removes 99.99% of known threats and received the honor of being the best antivirus for Windows PCs for February 2018 from AV-Test. Combining its strength with the malware analysis tool will help ensure virus removal.

2. Xcitium Dome

In case you want a more layered solution for your enterprise on top of your malware analysis tool, there’s Xcitium Dome. Xcitium Dome serves as a proactive solution against emerging threats by providing a modular cloud-delivered secure web platform. It combines several security solutions like a firewall, email protection, malware and virus removal in one package.

3. Xcitium Antispam

Malware like ransomware penetrates the system through emails. Malware engineers disguise them as links or as harmless downloadable files which dupe employees into downloading them on your system. The best method of Trojan virus removal is for spam, which serves as vehicles for malware, to never enter your employees’ inboxes in the first place. Xcitium Antispam provides a layered and robust security solution against spam and will sync well with your malware analysis scan.

Aside from the stand-alone malware analysis and these add-on services, Xcitium Forensic Analysis employs one more powerful malware analysis tool. When Xcitium Forensic Analysis tags a file as unknown, it uploads the file to Xcitium’s Valkyrie servers. The Valkyrie service aids in virus removal by running these files through a battery of tests. These tests are meant to coax out the behaviors of these files in aid of malware analysis. You will see a report of these tests on the Xcitium Forensic Analysis interface.

Of course, malware analysis can only go so far if it doesn’t scan into different layers of a system. The programmers behind the Xcitium Forensic Analysis Scanning Tool designed the software for large-scale malware analyses. It has several malware analysis modes to help an IT or network security team identify threats for virus removal. First, the Xcitium Forensic Analysis tool has an active directory malware analysis mode to scan all the computers in a domain. Second, the Xcitium Forensic Analysis tool has a workgroup malware analysis mode. It can also scan by network addresses. Finally, the Xcitium Forensic Analysis tool has a local computer malware analysis mode for every single computer in the network.

By adding a malware analysis tool such as Xcitium Forensic Analysis, you are fortifying your cyber defenses against looming threats of zero-day malware attacks. Don’t let threat detection be your single point of failure. Relying on standard antiviruses can only get you so far. Get Xcitium Forensic Analysis as your malware analysis tool and you’ll be able to halt these malware attacks even before a hacker hatches them.
