WASHINGTON – The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) announces a new release of our malware analysis system, called Malware Next-Gen, which allows any organization to submit malware samples and other suspicious artifacts for analysis. Malware Next-Gen allows CISA to more effectively support our partners by automating the analysis of newly identified malware and enhancing the cyber defense efforts.

Timely, actionable intelligence on malware, such as how it works and what it is designed to do, is crucial to network defenders conducting potential cyber incident response and/or threat hunts. Malware Next-Gen provides advanced and reliable malware analysis on a scalable platform, capable of meeting the increasing demands of future workloads. The integrated system provides CISA analysts and operations community members with multilevel containment capabilities for the automatic analysis of potentially malicious files or uniform resource locators (URLs).
