Qualys Malware Detection (MD) helps protect your organization’s reputation and keeps your website from being blacklisted by search engines by detecting malware that users may be infected with by visiting your site. Your organization doesn’t even have to be the source of the malware – it may be that third party content from ad or metrics services that are utilized by your website that infects your users. But even if it isn’t your content, if your website is used as the conduit for the infection, your website may be blocked by search engines and your organization is at risk of losing revenue and sustaining reputational damage. You also may scan up to 1,000 pages per site with the standard Qualys Malware Detection service.
Qualys MD browses your site just as a user would. The service does offer performance settings that allow you to conduct the scans at slower speeds that have the same impact as a single user, or you can choose to conduct the scans more quickly and this acts like there are more users browsing your site. These settings are completely configurable.
How does Qualys Malware Detection work?
The service browses your website just a like a user would on a scheduled basis. The service employs four different types of detection methods to identify any potential malware.
- Behavioral Analysis: The most powerful is advanced behavioral analysis that is performed via an instrumented browser that identifies when an infection takes place. Behavioral analysis does not rely on signatures so it can detect even zero day malware, something signature based detection can’t match.
- Reputation Checks: Links to external web pages are checked against reputation services to determine if they are untrusted.
- Antivirus: The service downloads and scans documents such as PDFs on the site using antivirus software.
