Malware Analysis

Fast and Accurate Analysis and Insights for Malware Mitigation

Malware Analysis – Automation and Simplicity Without Compromise

OPSWAT malware analysis solutions provide fast, accurate detection of malware before it impacts your critical infrastructure. By automating the detection and analysis process, leveraging your investment in existing tools and providing the right detection technology at the right place, OPSWAT Malware Analysis Solutions mitigate your cyber risk and reduce your total cost (TCO).

Front-line incident responders need to:

  • Analyze malware
  • Create a mitigation strategy
  • Detect malware variants that evade AV

- The Solution Overview Diagram

OPSWAT malware analysis solutions provide comprehensive cloud and on-premises malware analyses capabilities encompassing all the necessary components to manage, investigate, and deduct insights, all from a single source for both IT and OT environments.

For companies with critical infrastructure (CI) or running an operation with high SLAs, the ability to detect malware quickly and accurately is critical.

OPSWAT provides playbooks for automated malware analysis using OPSWAT’s industry-leading technologies like MetaDefender for multi-AV scanning and OPSWAT Sandbox for behavior-based analysis. The combination is a fast and accurate solution effectively maximizing your team’s skills and time and the tools you already have in place.

Malware Analysis for both IT & OT Environments

OPSWAT malware analysis solutions support both IT and OT (Operation Technology) environments. These solutions can detect and analyze advanced malware that attacks and disrupts production critical infrastructure (CI).

Leveraging OPSWAT’s experience in Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) we provide an innovative approach tailored to both IT and OT environments. OPSWAT Sandbox includes MITRE ATT&CK Frameworks for both IT and ICS (Industrial Control Systems), as well as Yara rules for IT and ICS. Malware behavior will get mapped and detected, with relevant behaviors flagged whether the malware targets enterprise IT environments or industrial control systems (ICS) in OT environments.


  • Automated analysis, using playbooks and multiple integrations to create and execute orchestrated workflows
  • Single pane of glass for malware analysis operations and reporting
  • IT and OT (ICS) support
  • Speed: Full dynamic analysis in < 60 secs
  • Accuracy: Dynamic analysis powered by 16 AI engines, multiple AV engines and Cloud threat intel ensure virtually 100% accuracy with low false positives.
  • Keep all files, analysis output, and insights private
  • Assists in attribution, provides IoCs for mitigation
  • Enable the security team to gain insights
  • Online and offline threat intelligence

Static Analysis


Advanced threat prevention technology scans observables with 30+ anti-malware engines using heuristics and machine learning technologies addressed to zero-day attacks. OPSWAT multiscanning technology provides the earliest protection against malware outbreaks.

30+ Anti-malware Engines

According to OPSWAT research, users might be exposed to a malware outbreak for 4 days longer when deploying 8 vs 20 anti-malware engines.

Our static analysis offers OPSWAT multiscanning technologies with up to 30+ anti-malware engines to increase the detection rate while reducing average exposure time. See reports

Threat detection matrix

Our malware analysis solutions provide 30+ Anti-malware engines, delivering the highest protection against malware outbreaks. The more scanning engines added, the more top-threats are detected.

Dynamic Analysis

OPSWAT Sandbox

OPSWAT Sandbox is an isolated testing environment that enables users to execute files without affecting the application, system, or platform on which they run.

OPSWAT Sandbox encompasses advanced functionalities that are tailor-made for Malware Analysis purposes such as:

Built-in pre-configured and licensed operating system

Supports critical infrastructure protection (CIP). Customized profiles include industrial control systems (ICS) applications that malware targets, thus increasing the number of attack surfaces to analyze.

Infection environment

Malware Analysts can automatically generate a long-running virtual environment that communicates with the Attacker’s Command and Control (C2) server, and monitors, and collects the most meaningful IOCs and files dropped.

Simulated network communication

By simulating a network communication that responds to the malware’s C2 queries, the malware will be deceived into thinking it is communicating with its operator and will send valuable data to it which is monitored by OPSWAT, potentially generating new insights.

Cyber Threat Intelligence

Online and On-premises Threat intelligence

Using Big Data correlation with the results of all types of analysis. We can deduct meaningful insights and understand threat trends, such as DLL use load, network traffic, executable files, etc.

Examples: Sodinokibi dropper, ShadowHammer Rootkit, Adwares.

OPSWAT malware analysis solutions enable files sent for analysis to be saved in an isolated environment and rescanned periodically. If an outbreak occurs, it will be detected as soon as it starts.
