The continuous advancement and sophistication of cyberthreats has gradually decreased the sufficiency of traditional gateway and endpoint security solutions for protection against malware. These approaches were sufficient when malware occurred in small numbers and it was easy to differentiate between good and bad applications. Nowadays, there’s a world of unknown code — a gap between known good and known bad code that can pose a serious risk to your environment.
How do you determine whether unknown code is good or bad? You let it run in a malware analysis sandbox — a safe environment that closely resembles your real infrastructure — and observe its behavior. This allows you to learn how the malware would affect your systems and extract information about the detailed behavior of the code.
