CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - August 31, 2020 – ReversingLabs, the leading provider of explainable threat intelligence solutions, announced the findings of a commissioned Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study conducted by global research firm Forrester Consulting on behalf of ReversingLabs to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying its Titanium Platform. Following a comprehensive interview with a ReversingLabs customer and extensive financial analysis, Forrester concluded that ReversingLabs Titanium Platform delivered an ROI of 397% over three years.
The results of The Total Economic Impact™ Of The ReversingLabs Titanium Platform report also revealed that a customer deploying the Titanium Platform could benefit from increased productivity of cybersecurity analysts valued at $5.6 million, and a cost savings of more than $234,467 in training new employees or analysts. Meeting the customer’s corporate compliance requirements for automated malware analysis, the ReversingLabs Titanium Platform was also shown by the Forrester TEI study to offer additional benefits. These included reduced turnover of cybersecurity analysts, reduced mean time to detect (MTTD) threats with millisecond response, seamless interface with existing cybersecurity tools and responsive support and training.
“Finely tuned security teams are instrumental to successful and ongoing detection and remediation of threats in an enterprise environment. We believe these latest Forrester findings demonstrate that customers who can automate malware analysis effectively enable their security teams to boost productivity significantly by identifying and prioritizing threats faster while simultaneously improving their skill sets,” said Mario Vuksan, CEO and Co-founder of ReversingLabs.
Specifically, ReversingLabs Titanium Platform helped the customer address the increasing volume of cybersecurity malware and threats by automating manual processes to review and inspect files. Automated decomposition, classification, threat indication, and comparison of files and file formats enabled analysts to prioritize and respond to threats more effectively while at the same time improving analysts skills and productivity and reducing the need for additional resources. Using the platform, analysts were able to double - and in some instances triple - the amount of work conducted, representing significant productivity gains.
Forrester observed in the study, “The most positive impact the Titanium Platform has had on the organization is the increased level of productivity of the analysts. The interviewee relayed that overall analyst productivity has doubled with the use of the Titanium Platform. For one group of analysts, he shared there was as much as triple the volume of work the analysts could now perform using the Titanium Platform.”
