NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intezer, creator of the world’s only threat detection systems to apply human biological immune system concepts to cyber security, today announced the release of Intezer Compromise Assessment service. The service builds upon Intezer’s Code Intelligence™ technology to provide organizations with a complete health check of their IT environment, detection of and remediation for any existing cyber attack/s, and access to reports for board-level presentation, and it does so more comprehensively and faster than any competitive offering. Intezer Compromise Assessment is currently shipping and for a limited time offering a 30% discount for customers.
“Compromise assessments are a vital part of the comprehensive infosec package, but they fall short in that they don’t detect all threats lurking in the system. Intezer Compromise Assessment discovers hidden threats that other providers simply cannot find, like ‘sleeping cells,’ silent code that sits undetected in the network awaiting commands from its controller. Our ability to do this rests on our technique which involves examining every little piece of code running in the entire organization,” said Chen Shafir, Professional Services Manager at Intezer. “The nature of cyber security is such that no organization can afford to wait a month for an in-depth review of its vulnerabilities, past and present. To be of any use whatsoever, that information is needed now, and that’s what we’re delivering.”
Itai Tevet, CEO and Co-founder of Intezer, continued, “The critical aspect of Intezer Compromise Assessment is our ability to not only find holes in your system via vulnerability assessments or penetration testing, but to identify them and tell you what went through these holes and is currently attacking your organization. Security breaches are no longer a question of ‘if,’ they are a question of ‘when’ and our latest service provides our customers with the ability to act swiftly and decisively to regain control of the situation.”
In addition to analysis and detection, Intezer’s new service takes compromise assessment several steps further, providing expert insights and recommendations from the company’s own highly regarded research team, along with vaccines that are effective against an adversary rather than just a specific malware sample. The experts at Intezer moreover manage the entire process on the client network.
“As a bank, it is of paramount importance that we stay at the very forefront of cyber security, and we go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that we do, and that we are continually armed with the best, most advanced protection tools available,” said Gil Polak, CISO, Bank of Israel. “Even so, we know that there are advanced actors whose attacks upon us might some day succeed, and that’s why compromise assessment is such a critical layer in our cyber security strategy. Indeed, as I speak, we are running a periodical health check, using Intezer Compromise Assessment and additionally we utilize Intezer Analyze when performing deep inspection operations on computer systems.”
Running periodical health checks using Intezer Compromise Assessment moreover adds the additional protection layer that is needed to achieve the level of security required of companies in order to achieve GDPR compliance.
“There are many excellent reasons that an organization might require an assessment service such as ours, in addition to vitally important, periodical health checks. A new CSO might require a review of the IT health of the company in order to better understand what he/she is dealing with. In the case of mergers and acquisitions, a CEO might order one of the company being acquired, or the CTO of a company that is already under attack might require a rapid yet comprehensive assessment of the situation,” explained Shafir.

- Proven technology: Because both trusted and malicious applications are based on previously written code, Intezer’s Code Intelligence™ can detect instances of reuse – uncovering the nature and identity of any unknown file.
