Partners collaborate to combine automation with a decentralized marketplace of expert analysts to detect and deter malware and cyber security breaches.
BOSTON, MA / SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO - FEBRUARY 21, 2018 - Decentralized IT security marketplace PolySwarm today announced that Basis Technology will support its decentralized cybersecurity marketplace with Cyber Triage, the automated, agentless, endpoint investigation tool. Cyber Triage’s upcoming release will enable automatic querying of the PolySwarm network for deeper analysis, building on top of Cyber Triage’s existing cloud-based malware detection. PolySwarm is the first decentralized marketplace where security experts build anti-malware engines that compete to protect enterprises and end users.
“Cyber Triage endpoint investigations reveal suspicious files, but confirming these files’ malintent is often a manual process,” said Carl Hoffman, CEO of Basis Technology, the company behind Cyber Triage. “With PolySwarm integration, Cyber Triage response teams can optimize their process by rapidly gathering opinions and advanced analysis about suspicious files from a network of cybersecurity experts.”
“Cyber Triage + PolySwarm will deliver more rapid and thorough threat detection during time-sensitive security incident response. Allowing responders to query PolySwarm’s distributed network to investigate suspicious files for malware will enable incident responders to focus on kicking attackers out - and keeping them out,” said Steve Bassi, CEO of PolySwarm.
The PolySwarm market runs on Nectar (“NCT”), an ERC20-compatible utility token that makes it easy to submit and classify potential threats on the PolySwarm market. Nectar replaces traditional, outdated antivirus and threat-scanning subscription payments. The Nectar token sale began February 20, 2018.
