Information is based on Malcovery’s ‘T3’ solution that detects threats an average of 36 hours ahead with 83% better detection than leading anti-virus vendors.

Simply put, Malcovery’s T3 delivers better, more complete information about emerging email threats.

Malcovery Security today announced it is offering free access to its market leading service, ‘Todays Top Threats’ (T3), an enterprise security intelligence solution that provides advanced notification and data about emerging malicious email-based threats. Access to T3 can be gained by registering at http://info.malcovery.com/todays-top-threats-t3-_-free-trial--malcovery-security-ncsam and will be available immediately through October 31, 2013 in recognition of Cyber Security Awareness Month, which began on October 1st.

"Time-sensitive reporting of in the wild email-based threats -- ahead of anti-virus companies by hours and in some cases days -- is essential in today’s technology environment," stated Greg Coticchia, President and CEO of Malcovery Security. "Malcovery’s T3 provides a security solution that recognizes a world where businesses guard a very different security perimeter than several years ago. Simply put, Malcovery’s T3 delivers better, more complete information about emerging email threats."

Malcovery Security receives and analyzes more than a million spam messages each day from a wide variety of sources. With its patented and patent-pending algorithms, Malcovery analyzes the spam on a number of factors and watches for "emerging threats" in the form of email messages that contain links to malicious websites or that contain malicious attachments. Once a new threat cluster is identified in the spam, characteristics about the malicious messages and the associated malware are documented.

The Malcovery T3 cyber threat service has been recognized independently for its ability to detect threats days ahead of other solutions and for its detection coverage and effectiveness when compared to antivirus offerings. ‘Krebs on Security’, a blog authored by noted investigative journalist Brian Krebs, reviewed the T3 reports in June and July of 2012. Krebs’ blog describes the effectiveness of current antivirus solutions when compared to T3: "The one detail most readers will probably focus on most [about] this report is the atrociously low detection rate for these spammed malware samples. On average, antivirus software detected these threats about 22 percent of the time on the first day they were sent and scanned at virustotal.com. If we take the median score, the detection rate falls to just 17 percent. That’s actually down from last month’s average and median detection rates, 24.47 percent and 19 percent, respectively."

About Malcovery® Security

Malcovery Security is the leading provider of actionable cyber security intelligence and forensic analysis, delivered through software and services that target cyber criminals and their activities. The company's patented and patent-pending technology provides the ability to identify the root sources of cybercrime attacks (servers, perpetrators, locations, etc.), delivering rich intelligence information about cross-brand attacks and targeted attacks, as well as advanced notification of emerging e-mail-based threats.

Unlike services that serve as a response to these attacks today--services that simply address the symptoms but cannot provide the intelligence to actually stop the cybercriminal--Malcovery Security’s solutions provide the unique intelligence required to respond effectively to attacks on customers’ brands, to disrupt phishing activities, and to successfully prosecute cybercriminals.

Malcovery Security was founded by security thought leaders formerly associated with Symantec, Verizon, Cloakware/Irdeto, Checkpoint and Infor/Lawson and is based on patented technologies developed at the UAB Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research (CIA|JFR) and has offices in Pittsburgh, PA, and Birmingham, AL.
