HBGary unveils next-gen Responder Pro malware analysis tool

HBGary Responder ProHoping to close the gap between discovery and mitigation of targeted attacks, HBGary, a part of ManTech International Corp., on January 8 made available a new version of Responder Pro, the industry standard in Windows memory forensics.

By leveraging Digital DNA 3.0, the latest generation of HBGary’s flagship behavioral analysis technology, Responder Pro 2.1 detects never-before-seen rootkits, Trojans, and other malware completely invisible to anti-virus and IOC (indicator of compromise) scanners, says the company.

New features and enhancements in Responder Pro 2.1 include:

  • Support for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 8, as well as Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000;
  • Support for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2012, as well as Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2000;
  • Full Digital DNA analysis of 32-bit and 64-bit processes, drivers, and modules;
  • Twice as many Digital DNA behavioral traits, making the world’s most accurate malware detection engine even better;
  • Unicode character support for extended and non-Latin alphabets.

Leading government agencies, Fortune 500 corporations, and state and local law enforcement are just a few of the organizations using Responder Pro to counter today’s relentless cyber-attacks.

“With the record increase in targeted attacks in 2013, it’s no longer a question of whether your organization will be hit; it’s a matter of when. Responder Pro gives investigators of all experience levels the ability to find the latest threats, collect and analyze critical memory artifacts, and generate actionable intelligence to determine whether an incident has occurred — and, if it has, to dedicate the necessary resources for response,” said Frank Blackmore, product manager.

Responder 2.1 also includes FDPro, the industry’s most complete memory acquisition tool.
