What you don’t know can hurt you.
The statistics are sobering:
- 20,000 to 300,000+ malicious viruses released daily.*
- 43 percent of US companies had a data breach in 2015.*
- 606 breaches in 2014; more than 77 million records exposed.*
- 47 percent of US adults had their personal information exposed by hackers in 2014.*
- 30 percent of every dollar and hour spent by enterprises in the remediation process goes to malware detection and identification.*
According to Gartner, commercial malware detection engines find roughly 80 to 90 percent of known signatures. But, you don’t know which 10 to 20 percent the malware detection engines don’t identify.
You are in a black hole and you don’t know it.
The only effective strategy: Scan your storage devices using ALL of the signatures known and used by the more than 55 commercial malware vendors who offer solutions so that your coverage is comprehensive.
But, to sequentially scan a 6TB hard drive with 55 malware detection engines takes more than 400 hours!
Can you afford this time when you are in the middle of a cyber attack that directly and indirectly costs you money, productivity, and brand?
No, of course not.
Therefore, time-to-discovery is the single most critical aspect when you are in the midst of a cyber attack and need to respond quickly – quickly to prevent it from getting worse, quickly to know where you are been compromised and quickly to effectively deal with potential damage to your brand and shareholder value.
Forensic Scan is a proprietary patent pending malware identification solution that scans all boot sectors and deleted files in your storage device for infection by malicious digital threats including viruses, malware, trojans and rootkits.
Our software-hardware solution uses commercial off-the-shelf malware detection engines with their most up-to-date virus signatures to simultaneously scan hard drives and storage devices effectively, reliably…and quickly.
Consider what it means to your recovery time to scan a 6TB hard drive or storage device using Forensic Scan with more than 55 malware detection engines in about 96 hours compared to doing it yourself in more than 400 hours.
Which 20 percent of threats are you not finding?
The dual threat of cyber attack and inefficient response is of concern to virtually everyone in your organization whether they are aware of it on a daily basis or not. If you are a business or IT executive thought leader or an IT professional charged with ensuring uptime and productivity in your organization the threats are even more critical to take seriously as you know the gravity of not responding quickly.
Business Leaders: Rapidly restore critical business operations.
During a cyber attack, damage to IT assets appears to be the primary challenge. But, damage to your critical business information and operations can be even more serious with far reaching consequences.
The equation is simple: the more time it takes you to recover from a cyber attack, the more expensive and difficult is your recovery. That makes a rapid, comprehensive and effective response more important than ever.
Forensic Scan helps you protect your organization’s knowledge and information and minimize disruption to business operations by enabling quicker incident response.
Faster speed-to-discovery using Forensic Scan can help you:
- Limit loss of critical business information.
- Limit losses in revenue.
- Limit losses to worker productivity.
- Limit losses to shareholder value.
- Limit damage to your brand.
Technology Leaders: Faster threat identification results in faster recovery.
Forensic Scan provides technology leaders with faster and more accurate results than standalone or single malware detection solutions. And, it will help you provide business executives with credible information upon which they can make strategic decisions during crisis situations.
Forensic Scan identifies malicious threats in active or deleted files in all boot sectors in an estimated 50 to 75 percent less time than other malware detection solutions.
Forensic Scan simultaneously scans storage devices with more than 55 industry-standard malware detection engines . Scan times range from 96 hours for storage devices up to 6TB. Compare this to the more than 400 hours it would take if a 6TB storage device is scanned sequentially with more than 55 malware detection engines, one engine at a time. Detecting and recovering deleted files and scanning with 55 engines requires more time than scanning only valid files.
With faster scans, you can achieve:
- Faster detection of malicious threats.
- Faster identification of viruses, malware, trojans and rootkits.
- Faster discovery of compromised data, files or folders on any specific hard drive or storage device.
- More time to plan and implement an effective response to the attack.
- More efficient use of IT resources in executing your incident response protocols.
Forensic Scan does the heavy lifting of detecting and identifying the malicious code and where your IT systems have been infected. You have the capability to use your own incident response protocols and internal expertise to neutralize and eradicate the threat.
IT Professionals: Accurate, comprehensive and reliable scans.
Industry experts estimate that there are 20,000 to more than 300,000 viruses or virus variants released daily. We all know that it’s a challenge to keep pace with all malicious threats.
The challenge is that malware detection engines are only as effective as the signatures they can find. According to Gartner, commercial malware engines typically find only 80 to 90 percent of known signatures in each scan.
Your problem: it’s impossible to know which malware signature your standard commercial malware solutions aren’t finding.
Before Forensic Scan, there were only two alternatives: try to run multiple engines at the same time or run multiple engines sequentially.
If you’ve tried to run two or more malware detection engines at the same time you discovered the same result as countless other IT professionals: You can’t. Each malware detection engine thinks the other malware detection software is malware thus neutralizing the scan of the other engine.
If you want to be comprehensive in your scan, you can run more than one engine sequentially. But, running 55 or more engines sequentially on a 6TB hard drive consumes more than 400 hours in a highly time-sensitive situation. Obviously, this is not a solution.
Forensic Scan malware detection engine is the only solution that provides accurate and comprehensive scans without self-neutralization and in a fraction of the time if you scanned simultaneously using multiple engines.
Detect, Recover and Scan Deleted Files
Malicious code is often hidden in deleted files, files that most conventional malware detection software does not scan.
Is it any wonder that 10 to 20 percent of malware is not found if the malware detection software does not scan much less find and recover deleted files?
No. We didn’t think so either.
That’s why our proprietary patented hardware-software solution scans all deleted files, first by recovering them and then putting them through the same comprehensive scanning process that we do for all other files.
Comprehensive and Reliable
You can rely on Forensic Scan to:
- Recover and scan deleted files. No other solution can find and analyze this important type of evidence.
- Verify security status. Learn if your storage device is infected or clean.
- Correctly classify all threats. Forensic Scan starts the diagnosis by classifying all malicious threats on your device.
- Detect and identify all known malicious threats. If a known signature infects your device, Forensic Scan will find it, name it and identify a malware engine that can eradicate it.
- Avoid self-neutralization.Forensic Scan eliminates software conflicts that stop other simultaneous, multi-engine scans.
This level of forensic analysis is not available in other commercial anti-virus software.
