Team Cymru Partners With Sunbelt Software to Deliver Advanced Malware Intelligence

Sunbelt's Advanced Automated Malware Analysis Tools Power New Service for the Cyber Security Community

NATIONAL HARBOR, MD--(Marketwire - November 18, 2008) - (CSI 2008 Show) -- Sunbelt Software, a leading provider of Windows security and management software, today announced a new partnership with Team Cymru, an Internet security research firm, to deliver information and network security tools to aid cyber security professionals in the ongoing arms race against malware authors.

Team Cymru's malware analysis and aggregation capability now incorporates analyses powered by Sunbelt's CWSandbox, the leading automated malware behavior analysis tool on the market, and Threat Track™, Sunbelt's malware data feeds.

"We constantly strive to improve our insight into malware threats in order to provide the most focused, accurate information to the information security community at large," said Jeff Vosburg, Chief Operating Officer at Team Cymru. "Sunbelt has the capability and reputation in the market to help us achieve this goal and we are delighted to be working with a leader in its field."

"Malware is becoming far more sophisticated with multi-pronged attacks and new techniques being unleashed on consumers and enterprises daily," said Chad Loeven, vice-president of business development of Sunbelt Software. "Collectively in the security community we face a common challenge of keeping abreast of new threats and being able to effectively analyze and counteract them."

Sunbelt CWSandbox automates what up until now has been a manual process where a researcher needed to manually analyze each threat on a case-by-case basis. This end-to-end process automation enables security companies and enterprises concerned with targeted and/or socially engineered attacks to filter through potential threats in a consistent, automated manner without tying up valuable resources.

"We believe we are providing a level of automation and granular analysis with CWSandbox that is far ahead of any other solution on the market," continued Loeven, "and it's for that reason so many of the largest global enterprises, security and telecom vendors and government and defense agencies trust Sunbelt and our malware analysis tools for proactive defense."
