Fortune 500 company with international client base relies on Binary Defense to keep its data secure
A Fortune 500 technology firm relies on Binary Defense to monitor for suspicious activity on its network. With a vast, international client base, a breach at this firm could have wide-reaching effects, including disruption of services, as well as significant financial losses.
The firm uses Binary Defense to manage and monitor its SIEM. Additionally, the Binary Defense team performs threat hunting, a proactive service that attempts to identify new threats that may have evaded traditional security. Many security solutions, such as antivirus, are only programmed to catch known threats–allowing newer threats to pass through networks undetected. While endpoint detection programs will note suspicious activity, it takes a team of skilled analysts to determine whether the threat is real or not.

Skilled analysts identified threat and helped contain it
The firm needed to know whether the attack had been successful, so Binary Defense analysts followed the digital evidence to retrieve and reverse- engineer the malware payload, taking apart the anti-analysis defenses that the malware author had put in place. They quickly identified the capabilities of the malware, as well as the servers that it communicated with, and used that information to search through logs and determine whether the final stage of the attack had been successful as well as what computers it had affected. The analysis revealed that the attacker had made a mistake in a critical step of delivering the final stage of the malware.
Because the customer was promptly notified of the attack in its early stages, they were able to take quick action to stop a threat before it had a chance to harm the company. Fully understanding the attacker’s methods helped the client be prepared to respond quickly in case of a repeat attack.
