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 founder’s 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 corporations, government institutions and security vendors. 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 (the Malscape™). Lastline leverages this threat intelligence to create advanced malware defenses for companies of all sizes.
By focusing on cloud based automated systems and processes, we have 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. Our higher level of accuracy and our attention to the everyday requirements of IT managers allows us to deliver actionable threat intelligence to security teams and to companies that rely on managed security services for their protection.
