Partnership Enables Public Sector Agencies to Deploy Joe Sandbox to Detect Malware Faster
AUSTIN, TX — May 5, 2020 — InQuest, a leading provider of enterprise-scale file analytics, threat hunting and threat prevention solutions, today announced an exclusive reseller agreement with Joe Security, a leading provider of automated malware analysis. The agreement expands the availability of Joe Sandbox to the US public sector, enabling agencies to detect and remediate malware threats faster to prevent downtime, data breaches, and security incidents.
Threat actors and cyber criminals have developed thousands of malicious programs that can evade traditional network, antivirus and endpoint security solutions, as well as detect when organizations are using “sandboxing” techniques to find and examine malware before it makes its way to end users. Joe Sandbox combines multiple techniques to address this by enabling fully automated deep analysis and making it harder for malicious programs to detect and evade sandboxing.
U.S. federal, state, and local government agencies can purchase Joe Sandbox solutions directly through this new, exclusive partnership or as part of their existing agreement with InQuest if they are already an InQuest client. Advantages of Joe Sandbox include:
- Detecting malware faster and easier through a fully automated system, saving time and money
- Industry’s deepest malware analysis: from high-level system behavior down to a single assembly instruction
- Automated analysis of malware targeting Windows, macOS, Linux and Android
- Can be used as on-premise software or cloud-based solution, offering more flexibility for CERTS, CIRTS, SOCs, malware analyst and incident responders
"We’re pleased to announce this partnership and add Joe Security’s advanced malware detection capabilities to our solutions portfolio,” said InQuest CTO Pedram Amini. “We look forward to working with the Joe Security team to develop additional offerings for our public sector clients to help them fight against today’s threats more effectively.”
“We are excited to partner with InQuest to bring innovative, deep malware analysis technologies to the public sector in the United States,” said Joe Security’s VP of Business & Corporate Development Marius Fitigau. “This partnership will allow us to expand our market by providing government customers with integrated solutions that increase the efficiency of their cyber security operations.”
