World's Fastest Malware Analysis Appliance Debuts At Black Hat USA 2010

ValidEdge Malware Intelligence System 1100 offers security response teams actionable intelligence
BLACK HAT USA 2010, Las Vegas, NVJuly 20, 2010–ValidEdge today announced that it will demonstrate its new Malware Intelligence System 1100, the world’s fastest malware analysis appliance, in the Tech Locker pavilion at Black Hat USA 2010. Black Hat, the leading conference series for technical security professionals, has earned cult status among security enthusiasts and leading technical influencers. Black Hat USA 2010 will take place at the Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV, on July 24-29 and is expected to draw thousands of highly-placed security professionals from government entities, academic institutions and companies large and small.

This year’s conference will include Tech Locker, an exclusive pavilion to showcase innovative technology from selected new companies that are attending Black Hat for the first time. ValidEdge will demonstrate the industry’s fastest, always-on appliance for automated identification and better mitigation of targeted threats from new malware, i.e., malicious software that has yet to be identified. With its Malware Intelligence System 1100 appliance, ValidEdge unveils patent-pending malware analytics that identify new malware samples in seconds and allow first responders to analyze malware-based attacks with unprecedented speed.

“We’re impressed by ValidEdge’s innovative approach to malware analysis and are excited to have them be a part of the first Tech Locker at Black Hat USA,” said Lenny Heymann, vice president of UBM TechWeb, which produces Black Hat. “This year’s event will be the largest ever for Black Hat and we’re looking forward to a terrific week.”

"Governments, corporations, and individuals are routinely targeted by malware attackers. Protecting against the new wave of targeted malware requires a fundamentally unique approach," said Gurjot Singh, CEO at ValidEdge. "Until organizations are able to automate the process of analyzing suspicious files, they remain very much at risk. ValidEdge appliances will give security professionals the knowledge needed to detect, analyze and repair compromised systems within minutes.”
