Lastline, Inc., was founded in 2011 by university researchers Engin Kirda, Christopher Kruegel, and Giovanni Vigna. Lastline’s security products synthesize and bring to commercial standards the founders’ award-winning, world-renowned academic research on malware analysis and countermeasures. The founders are also the founders of iSecLab.
The founders are well-known for their development of Anubis and Wepawet, cloud-based malware analysis tools with a user base of tens of thousands of users. They have each published over a hundred scientific papers, and are considered to be today’s thought leaders on automated high-resolution malware analysis and detection.
Lastline is focused on real-time analysis of advanced malware and knowing the Internet’s malicious infrastructure. Lastline leverages this threat intelligence to create advanced malware defenses for companies of all sizes.
By focusing on cloud-based automated systems and processes, Lastline has developed the technology to analyze advanced malware at an unprecedented speed and volume. This gives Lastline the ability to analyze binaries and web content in real-time as it enters the Enterprise network, as well as the ability to map the Malscape at a level of accuracy and relevance not previously available. Lastline’s higher level of accuracy and attention to the everyday requirements of IT managers allows for the delivery of actionable threat intelligence to security teams and to companies that rely on managed security services for their protection.
