SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Silicium Security, the provider of ECAT advanced malware detection, today announced at the RSA Conference that it has partnered with SurfRight to give ECAT enterprise customers integrated malware removal within ECAT. ECAT customers will now be able to push a silent background remediation agent to machines identified as compromised with known malware. The agent then remediates the endpoint, removing malware traces, without needing to re-image.

By leveraging SurfRight’s HitmanPro technology, ECAT now provides a broader feature set for facilitating incident response from detection to resolution. "With ECAT we focus on finding the most difficult-to-detect, potentially damaging malware like advanced persistent threats that are targeted at enterprises with the most intellectual property to lose. By incorporating SurfRight’s highly regarded remediation agent, we deliver best-of-breed functionality to what is already the best enterprise malware detection system on the market" said Chad Loeven, Silicium Security’s VP of Sales and Marketing.

“Advanced malware threats are not only masters in disguise, but also use various methods to make them difficult to remove”, said Mark Loman, CEO of SurfRight. “Today’s malware is often protected by watchdogs and piggybacks on critical system files or boot records to subvert Windows and antivirus software, even before the operating system boots. Specialized techniques like those used by HitmanPro are needed to ensure the malware is thoroughly removed, once and for all.”

Silicium Security will be presenting ECAT V.3.3 with remediation at booth #340 during the RSA conference.
