Security Engineering Research Team (SERT)

Security Engineering Research Team (SERT)

The primary mission of the Security Engineering Research Team (SERT) is to protect and inform Solutionary
clients through security threat research, vulnerability analysis, and the development of effective countermeasures.
SERT is made up of security experts with diverse skill sets, allowing Solutionary to view the threat landscape
from different perspectives and providing Solutionary clients with comprehensive protection.

Identifying Risk and Providing Protection

SERT combines people with specific security knowledge, coupled with a wide range of security experience. The
end result is a team that possesses the security engineering, research and forensics background to research
threats and vulnerabilities, develop detection techniques and provide a systematic process for identifying
risks and threats to protect Solutionary clients.

Global Threat Intelligence

SERT continually monitors the global threat landscape for new and emerging threats in the wild, as well as
security trends to improve Solutionary’s long-established and patented security framework.

Areas of Focus

SERT focuses on the following activities:

  • Researching recent security trends to forecast and understand threats
  • Data mining for ActiveGuard® early warning systems
  • Monitoring active threats in real-time
  • Researching new zero-day vulnerabilities and attacks
  • Analyzer creation (heuristics, anomaly, APT detection)
  • Building and maintaining an internal list of known malicious sites for real-time detection
  • Maintaining hacker & active third-party black lists for botnets, command and control sites &
    phishing attacks
  • Continuous global threat analysis and incident response
  • Malware forensic research
  • Vulnerability , discovery & disclosure of newly identified vulnerabilities to software and hardware
  • Custom signature development for zero-day vulnerabilities and high profile threats
  • Monthly security trend reports

Technology and Service Partners

Solutionary also maintains strategic alliances with leading technology and service partners such as Microsoft®,
Sun®, and Oracle® to ensure timely notification of vulnerabilities and to develop appropriate protection
measures against threats.

One example of Solutionary’s technology partnership program is its participation in the Microsoft Active
Protections Program (MAPP). MAPP is a Microsoft program providing vulnerability information to security
software providers in advance of Microsoft’s scheduled monthly security bulletins. In 2010, Adobe joined
the Microsoft Active Protections Program and is sharing vulnerability information for all Adobe products
through the program. SERT utilizes this information to quickly notify clients about those updates, build
custom signatures and create validation and detection tools.

Solutionary is also an active participant in industry-specific organizations such as the Financial Services
Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC). Participating in organizations like FS-ISAC gives SERT
access to reliable and timely information about security threats impacting specific industries, which is then
used to protect and inform Solutionary clients.
