Las Vegas, Nevada, August 10, 2022 – OPSWAT, a global leader in critical infrastructure protection (CIP) cybersecurity solutions, today announced new malware analysis capabilities for IT and OT at the Black Hat USA 2022 Conference. These enhancements include the OPSWAT sandbox for OT, which detects malicious communications over OT network protocols, and support for open source third-party tools in the MetaDefender Malware Analyzer solution.

As threats grow and concerns about their propagation to OT networks within critical infrastructure environments increase, providing the necessary data and analytics capabilities across the organization requires a Threat intelligence is essential. OPSWAT MetaDefender Malware Analyzer now offers the ability to map malware detected through the OPSWAT sandbox to her MITER ATT&CK Industrial Control System (ICS) framework. This allows the malware analysis team to quickly understand the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) of malware specifically targeting her OT environment. This alignment with common security lexicons for cyberattacks targeting ICS/OT environments also helps bridge the communication gap between IT and OT security teams.

Yiyi Miao, Senior Vice President of Products, said: “Not only does it demonstrate the significant investment in research and development of our products, but it also advances our mission to protect critical infrastructure through better malware analysis from OT. Thousands of Industry Leads” We are pleased that InfoSec professionals are the first to see these new features and understand how they can protect their critical environments.”

As an automation and orchestration platform, MetaDefender Malware Analyzer receives suspicious files and sends them to various tools, such as the OPSWAT sandbox, aggregates the results, and then converts those results into actionable information and breaches. Coordinate the process of sending threat intelligence along with indicators (IOCs). platform. The solution also enables organizations to efficiently process and triage large volumes of suspicious files while correlating with multiple on-premises and cloud threat intelligence sources. These capabilities broaden the breadth of intelligence for malware analysis teams, provide more actionable insight into known threats on-premises, and ultimately help mitigate these threats.

These enhancements follow OPSWAT’s State of Malware Analysis 2022 report and the OPSWAT MetaDefender Malware Analyzer launched earlier this year.
