Gary Warner is the visionary, inventor, as well as patent holder, for much of the technology that drives the Malcovery solutions. In addition to his Malcovery role, he remains the Director of Research in Computer Forensics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). In this role, which brings together the Computer and Information Science department with the Justice Science department, he is doing research that helps law enforcement and other security professionals identify, apprehend, prosecute, and convict cybercriminals, and spreads information to victims and potential victims about cybercrime issues.
Malcovery’s solutions are based on technology developed at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and are covered by three awarded patents and one pending patent exclusively licensed by Malcovery. All of Malcovery’s technology is focused on cyber attacks that originate in email-based threats. The Company delivers actionable cyber intelligence and forensic analysis through both software and services that target cyber criminals and their activities to stop current attacks and prevent future ones. This unique actionable intelligence enables identification of the ‘root sources” of cybercrime attacks (servers, perpetrators, locations, etc.), provides rich intelligence information about cross-brand and targeted attacks, and gives advanced notification of emerging e-mail based threats.
Malcovery was launched in early 2013 as a result of an exclusive, worldwide license from the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), and based on research in cyber forensics conducted at the Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research (CIA|JFR) at UAB. Malcovery has quickly gained commercial success with enterprise customers such as eBay, Facebook, Visa, IBM, Citi, Assurant, and others. Key partners and resellers include IBM, Agari, Internet Identity (IID), PPMA, and Bishop Technologies.
Malcovery Security is the leading provider of actionable cyber security intelligence and forensic analysis about email-based threats (phishing, spam and malware) that identify, prioritize and target cybercriminal activities and provide effective countermeasures. Delivered as a subscription service, 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 actionable intelligence information about cross-brand attacks and targeted attacks, as well as advanced notification of emerging email-based threats. Unlike services that serve only as a reactive response to these attacks today—services that simply address the symptoms but cannot provide the intelligence to actually stop the cybercriminals and their activities—Malcovery Security’s solutions provide the unique intelligence required to respond effectively to attacks on customers’ brands, to disrupt email-based threats on an organization.
Malcovery Security has offices in Birmingham, AL and Pittsburgh, PA.
