In this edition of the Soap Box we hear from Mike Wiacek and Eric Foster from Stairwell.

Stairwell makes a product that collects and analyses every executable file in your environment. You deploy file collectors to your systems and they forward all new files to Stairwell for manual and automated analysis. You can do a lot of really cool analysis once you have all that stuff in the same place.

But as you’ll hear, Stairwell is broadening out the use cases for its platform. You don’t want to forward files from every system? You don’t have to. It’s still very useful as an analysis platform. It’s sort of like VirusTotal, but private and with a bunch more bells and whistles. There’s also a bunch of sharing tools in the platform, which gives it a “social network for CTI nerds” flavour.
