It is not a matter of asking the question “are we infected with malware?” it is a matter of finding out from which part of the network the malware is already communicating to the outside world. The RedSocks solution helps organisations 24/7 to augment the existing corporate network security measures. The goal of this is to quickly assess the risks and offer additional protection against current and next-generation malware.
RedSocks Malware Threat Defender (MTD), is a network appliance that analyses digital traffic flows in real-time based on algorithms and lists of malicious indicators.
RedSocks is a Dutch company that specialises in malware detection. Our solution, RedSocks Malware Threat Defender (MTD), is a network appliance that analyses digital traffic flows in real-time based on algorithms and lists of malicious indicators. This critical information is compiled by the RedSocks Malware Intelligence Team (MIT). The team consists of specialists whose job it is to identify new threats on the Internet and translate them into state-of-the-art malware detection capabilities.
The RedSocks MTD solution was developed to augment existing corporate network security measures in order to offer additional protection against current and next generation malware. The solution is comprehensive in that it offers real-time protection while also preventing data leakage as a result of using cloud services outside of your regular data traffic.
A significant challenge to existing security infrastructures is that they depend on anti-virus software and firewalls to protect against threats at the enterprise level. Unfortunately, this level of protection is not robust enough to protect against data-compromising malware. Quite frequently these solutions do not alert you when malware finds its way into your system and also lack the flexibility to quickly adjust to the growing sophistication of malicious threats.
RedSocks offers advanced malware protection that discovers, analyzes and blocks malware by utilizing Big Data analytics:
Malware developers never relent and neither should your security solution. RedSocks MTD is dedicated to offering real-time protection against all forms of data espionage. Not just in the present, but in the future as well.
RedSocks MTD proactively halts malware at the network level before it can enter your system. Our solution accomplishes this via real-time analysis of your network traffic – all entry and exit points are monitored vigilantly; it constantly checks your traffic for both malware and any Internet connections that could compromise your security. This method rapidly and effectively protects your enterprise against malware threats before they can even pose a challenge to your system.
Having RedSocks MTD incorporated in your network infrastructure means that you will have peace-of-mind when it comes to malicious threats. This sense of security comes from knowing that all Internet traffic is monitored in real time — if malware is detected, it triggers a chain of events designed to promptly address the issue before it becomes a problem.
The process starts with our Redsocks MIT: a group of highly dedicated malware specialists whose sole task it is to develop risk analyses and compile lists of malicious indicators on a 24/7 basis. If malware is detected on your network, your network security team will receive a status report immediately.
We realise that the integrity of your data is of paramount importance and do not wish to compromise that in any way. Although the RedSocks MTD solution inspects data on your network for malware, we do not look at the actual content of your data. In fact, the MTD only analyses the metadata of your network traffic. The confidentiality of your corporate data remains uncompromised.
The implementation of RedSocks MTD into your enterprise is exceedingly straightforward because our solution operates on network architecture that already exists in your corporate network. There is no need to purchase additional hardware, software, or services — simply enable flow data on your existing Internet router, add RedSocks MTD at the edge of your network, and you’re done! Administering RedSocks MTD is likewise easy via an intuitive web interface that facilitates the quick configuration of company-specific settings, such as network, detection, and alerts.
