Cloud communications services have become increasingly prevalent in the way companies operate today; however, the one main deterrent is found in its sometimes questionable security aspects. Inevitably, this had led companies to seek new ways to use this technology in a way that is significantly safer and more secure. In light of this, GFI Software has launched its ThreatTrack 2.0 solution.
This solution is an intelligent, cloud services monitoring solution that combines information from a whole host of different security reads including GFI’s malware analysis tool, Sandbox. ThreatTrack is a software program that is built to stand out from the rest because of its ability to react intelligently and block access to other programs from invaders that carry malicious programming.
GFI says that ThreatTrack also stands out due to its ability to be used by a company’s in-house IT professionals, as well as security vendors that will use the solution to keep their own security profiles up to date.
“When you are up against sophisticated cybercriminals, every minute counts. Zero-day malware threats are much harder for security systems to detect than known malicious files that are already blacklisted,” Julian Waits, general manager of GFI Software’s security business unit explained in a recent statement.
Waits added that this particular solution will also allow the program to work that much better with the business and even the academic world. Waits continued that the biggest change from ThreatTrack 2.0 and its predecessor, ThreatTrack 1.0, is that there are a ton of new definitions of threats included in this particular build.
However, that doesn’t mean that people who use this program need to have a giant database taking up space on their network, as the company assures that users can download only the definitions and identifiers they want to work with and definitly block. This kind of control comes in much handy when working with a smaller database or one that has specific vulnerabilities. GFI adds that users can also select from three different formats: XML, TXT or JSON.
