12 July 2007 – Messaging security vendor, MessageLabs, has chosen Norman’s SandBox Analyzer tools to further enhance its malware analysis capabilities following the interception of new and unknown threats stopped by Skeptic™, MessageLabs unique proprietary threat protection technology.

Predictive and proactive, Skeptic delivers unrivalled zero-hour protection from even the most sophisticated and targeted security threats at the internet level, well away from its client’s network. Norman Sandbox Analyzer tools, in addition to other industry leading tools, will provide MessageLabs with invaluable insights into the malware used and comprehensive information about the nature of these threats.

“The threat landscape is constantly evolving and so are the techniques used by the bad guys to infect or attack their victims. Norman’s tools, along with our other analysis techniques, will enable us to more quickly analyse files that we have identified as new malware, allowing us to quickly have a good understanding the nature of the threat," said Maksym Schipka, senior architect at MessageLabs.

Norman SandBox Analyzer automates the process of analysing suspicious files, identifying what type of malware it is and whether it is a threat. SandBox Analyzer also establishes what the potential impact of the malware would be by establishing how it would change the system, for example by deleting or creating files, or altering registry and system settings. It can handle large numbers of files at one time and enables users to gain an understanding of the behaviour of the file more quickly and effectively than ever before.

SandBox Analyzer Pro conducts deep analysis of suspicious files and is unique in allowing users to analyse malicious code, including viruses, worms, Trojans and keyloggers. It is used for reverse engineering and debugging malware, and performs the functions of a complete virus analysis lab. Both SandBox Analyzer and SandBox Analyzer Pro are underpinned by Norman’s SandBox technology - a fully-simulated computer isolated within the application that allows rogue files to be run to view their impact, without any risk of infecting the network.

“MessageLabs is very well respected in the messaging and web security space, with over 15,000 customers worldwide. It has become this successful through its proactive approach to protecting its customers, always looking for the latest technology to help it counter the array of different threats out there. We are really pleased that it has chosen the SandBox Analyzer products to continue to deliver the best possible service to its customers, and we feel it is a great testament to the power of our solutions,” said David Robinson, Country manager - UK & Ireland, Norman Data Defence.
