VirusTotal and Mindflow have partnered to enable users to automate their incident management and better protect their information systems.
VirusTotal is a free service that uses more than 70 antivirus engines on its web service to analyze suspicious files and URLs, domain blockisting services, in addition to a myriad of tools to extract signals from the studied content, to facilitate the quick detection of viruses, worms, Trojans, and all kinds of malware.
Any user can select a file from their computer using their browser and send it to the solution. It offers a number of file submission methods, including the primary public web interface, desktop uploaders, browser extensions, and a programmatic API.
Upon submitting a file or URL basic results are shared with the submitter, and between the examining partners, who use results to improve their own systems. As a result, by submitting files, URLs, domains, etc. to VirusTotal you are contributing to raising the global IT security level.
This core analysis is also the basis for several other features, including the VirusTotal Community which is a network that allows users to comment on files and URLs and share notes with each other. This helps to identify false positives.
By integrating with the web-based solution, Mindflow allows users to automate the submission of suspicious files, in any programming language, using the HTTP-based public API.
