Worldwide hotel group InterContinental Hotels, with brands including Holiday Inn Express, Holiday Inn, Candlewood Suites, Staybridge Suites, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, and Holiday Inn Resort, has reported an unwelcome guest in nearly one third of their 5,000 global properties: malware.
Last week forensic expert Alissa Torres from the SANS Institute and Infocyte’s co-founder Chris Gerritz hosted a Webinar on Forensic State Analysis: A New Approach to Threat Hunting. In it they discussed how to adapt Digital Forensics & Incident Response (DFIR) techniques to scalably and proactively hunt for unknown threats across an entire enterprise network. If you missed the webinar here’s some highlights.
The recent explosion in mainstream attacks using “fileless” malware has left many organizations wondering how they can defend themselves. Infocyte has taken a unique approach to threat hunting that works by scanning key parts of volatile memory across thousands of systems at a time, making it possible to detect fileless malware at enterprise scale.
SANS is the most trusted and by far the largest source for information security training and security certification in the world, so we're excited to co-host a Webinar with SANS analyst Alissa Torres on March 29th at 3:00pm EST. The webinar will focus on a new approach to Threat Hunting called Forensic State Analysis.
RSAC is the industry mecca for security pros looking to keep up to speed with the trends in information security and companies showcasing their innovations. This year’s conference attracted over 43,000 attendees and featured two exhibition halls jampacked with hundreds of security vendors. Wandering the halls of RSAC this year, there was a lot of expected marketing hype and some compelling trends that emerged; some of them I saw coming... others, were surprising.
Tonight, Infocyte will be attending the 2017 SC Magazine's Awards Ceremony as a nominee for the Best Forensics Solution. It's certainly an honor to be nominated for this award. But frankly, we're a bit of an anomaly in this category. Let me explain. Unlike the other solutions, like Guidance Software's Encase, Infocyte HUNT is not a pure forensics solution. On the contrary, what we have done is novel among commercial cybersecurity products. We have morphed endpoint digital forensics for proactive and scalable threat hunting (the search for unknown compromises/threats that have already bypassed other security controls).
