Threat Expert can see all sorts of behaviour ranging from spyware to keylogging, rootkits, malware, adware, dialers, downloaders, worms, viruses etc.you name it, we can see it. Traditionally, when new threats are identified by an organization, they require a thorough evaluation to determine if they pose a real threat to users.
Once a threat is identified, it can take hours, or even days to reverse engineer and eventually produce a report and finally a solution.
Threat Expert breaks this mould as the first to offer a sophisticated and detailed threat analysis in a matter of minutes. Clausen added; We radically save time cracking complex spyware and virus codes by automating this detection process and giving real-time threat
information to businesses and security researchers.
This is why our research is substantially better than even the largest competitors in the Internet security space. It also shows howthrough innovation and intelligent designeven a medium-sized security vendor can challenge those large companies at the top.
Thanks to Threat Expert, our team of highly-trained analysts can deliver signature updates to our customers in less than an hour, Clausen said. At the PC Tools Malware Research Centre, each Threat Expert server processes up to 1,000 samples a day. It would take more than 125 highly-trained analysts to perform the same work of just one of our Threat Expert servers.
Clausen added that Threat Expert, a patent pending technology, will initially be offered free to relevant businesses such as search engines, content sharing organizations and security researchers to battle emerging threats and test its effectiveness. These companies or individuals can simply send suspected threats to PC Tools through a special website portal where Threat Expert will quickly provide a detailed report which can then be used to create the patch to eliminate these threats.
