ManTech Cyber Solutions International, Inc. (MCSI), a commercial subsidiary of ManTech International Corporation, announced its official launch into the endpoint security software market. MCSI offers a comprehensive suite of products to help global companies thwart today’s advanced, targeted cyber threats originating from nation states, threat actors, and malicious insiders. MCSI’s products address the gap in today’s market currently filled with signature- and indicators of compromise (IOC)-based security products that are limited in their effectiveness and unable to defend against sophisticated advanced persistent threats.
MCSI’s newest product, Responder PRO, Linux Edition, captures physical memory from Linux servers and hosts, such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS, enabling cyber security analysts to perform deep forensic analysis of malware artifacts in these memory images. Leveraging Digital DNA, MCSI’s revolutionary memory analysis technology, Responder PRO reverse engineers all code in memory, examines it for potentially malicious capabilities, and uncovers critical artifacts for incident response, data compliance, and electronic discovery.
"MCSI has taken a fresh look at the cyber security market from the endpoint perspective and, while a lot of endpoint products have come to market, they have been looking through the rearview mirror when it comes to detecting malware," said Raj Dodhiawala, MCSI senior vice president and general manager. "The right place to detect malware is in memory, and MCSI has solved this difficult problem with our patented Digital DNA technology that performs behavior-based analysis of physical memory to detect malicious processes."
Responder PRO is different. While conventional products use malware signatures or IOCs, meaning the malware must have been previously detected for a signature or IOC to be created, Responder PRO examines the behavior of code executing in memory to detect malicious traits, thus enabling detection of zero-days, rootkits, and advanced persistent threats.
Dodhiawala further added, "With 200-plus customers and ManTech’s deep cybersecurity experience in the federal government, we deliver differentiated value and are poised for growth across all industries including banking, retail, oil and gas, telco, healthcare, and manufacturing."
