If you have a cybersecurity question then cyber security specialist Kaspersky could have the answer. Or is at least is prepared to give it a go with its new “Ask the Analyst service” by which you can submit a question to its researchers for their opinions and guidance on cyberthreats and security issues. The programme will include malware sample analysis, malware family information or certain threat descriptions, requests for dark web intelligence or further information on published Kaspersky APT Intelligence Reports.
This new offering will help businesses to obtain more information on a threat, such as a description of a specific malware family, additional context for indicators of compromise (hashes, URLs, CnCs, etc.) or vulnerabilities. The service will also request dark web research to reveal what cybercriminals know about IP addresses, domain names, files, emails, or any details of incidents they are discussing. These reports will be delivered by the Kaspersky Security Services Team.
Most importantly, the service provides exclusive access to a core group of experts within Kaspersky with diverse specialisations, all through one point of contact and within a single license. The information is offered on a case-by-case basis.
“We believe that human analysts are still the most valuable asset in any threat investigation. Tailored information about specific threats can be essential to protect organisations from advanced cyberthreats and can save a lot of time and resources for an organisation’s SOC team. Now we are proud to announce this new service that allows customers to tailor Kaspersky’s recognised threat research capabilities to the specific needs of their company.” – comments Alexander Liskin, Head of Anti-Malware Research at Kaspersky.
