We have two SIEMs in the Labs and we use them slightly differently. The McAfee ESM is our workhorse. We use the version 10 and we really like the new html5 user interface. This SIEM started life as the NitroView and it was, at that time, unquestionably the best analyst's SIEM available. Today, Nitro having been acquired by McAfee, sold to Intel, and returned to McAfee, the product has undergone many changes, all of them very positive from our perspective.
VMRay Analyzer is an automated sandbox with a few additional features that make it a nice stand-alone malware analysis tool. While it is available as an on-premises offering, it is most often used as a cloud service. However, running on-prem offers the additional benefit of being able to use gold images of your own environment as targets. This tool uses the unique approach of depending upon the hypervisor in a virtual environment.
Verdict: We have gushed about this tool enough in the review so we’ll simply offer a verdict of Best Buy for this month. This, unequivocally, is the 800-pound gorilla of reversing tools. It has been around as freeware and as a commercial product since 2005. We know of no serious malware analyst who is not familiar with - or, in fact, uses - IDA Pro in one of its forms. The company also produces a C/C++ decompiler one of the first, if not the first, in the industry.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
