IIJ Launches IIJ Malware Analysis Solution

October 30, 2014

TOKYO-October 30, 2014-Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ, NASDAQ: IIJI, TSE1: 3774), one of Japan's leading Internet access and comprehensive network solutions providers, today announced the launch of IIJ Malware Analysis Solution. This solution detects and analyzes malware, malicious software that infects and damages corporate systems.

In this solution, malware that threatens corporate IT assets is extracted from sandbox security devices such as the "Palo Alto Networks PA Series," "FireEye NX/EX Series," and security tools which defend against APT attacks such as "FFR yarai" for investigation and analysis by an expert analyst. The analyst then provides information on the malware such as how dangerous it is and how infected the system is, for the benefit of customers who are unable to deal with malware due to lack of knowledge or personnel. Sharing this information enables customers to quickly take measures according to their security policies, and will improve response efficiency.

This solution offers three levels of service: (1) initial detection, (2) simple analysis, and (3) detailed analysis. Customers can choose a level of analysis according to their objectives.

  Initial Detection Simple Analysis Detailed Analysis
