Static File Analysis breaks down attachments to spot malicious activity at the code level, probing deeper than and eliminating latency from more traditional methods like sandboxing. Whether it’s an attachment to an email or you’re downloading a file from the web, this technique more quickly and accurately detects and stops malicious files from reaching your environment.
Mimecast Static File Analysis uses signature-less technology to catch more sophisticated and zero-hour attacks that traditional anti-malware cannot. This technology evaluates every line of code, even those not being executed (which sandboxes cannot detect) to identify malicious actions faster and more accurately than traditional detection methods.
Mimecast uses this detection technique in both our email security and web security services to deliver even better efficacy to help protect our customers. So, whether your creative team is downloading media files, your legal team is accessing contracts in Word, or your users are downloading PDFs, Mimecast Static File Analysis along with sandboxing helps protect your organization and employees from never-before-seen attacks.
Traditional cybersecurity uses signatures and sandboxing to detect known and unknown threats. This approach, however, can struggle to detect the latest evasive malware. Combining Static File Analysis with signature-based detection and sandboxing improves detection efficacy and speed for better protection against current and future threats.
Detect malicious actions in executable and non-executable code
Proactively prevent malicious downloads from email and the web
Eliminate latency from traditional signature detection and sandboxing
Improve speed and efficacy of protection against current and future, unknown threats
