Joe Sandbox Complete's architecture is modular. It consists of at least one controller machine running Linux and multiple connected analysis machines (with Windows, Android and Linux installed) hosted by virtualization products such as VMware or VirtualBox. For analysis on macOS an Apple Mac Mini or Mac Book is required. Files and URLs are send by users or the RESTFul Web API to the controller's web server. The Joe Sandbox Complete server stores the sample in a local file database and forwards them to the connected analysis machines, where the sample is then executed.

Classification and threat scores help to detect sophisticated cyber-attacks quickly. A context based search enables to quickly navigate.
Joe Sandbox Complete enables analysis of all executable files (including malicious documents) on Windows 7, Windows W7 x64, Windows 10 and Windows 10 x64. Android Application Packages (APK) can be analyzed on all Android versions. In addition Joe Sandbox Complete analyses files on macOS and Linux..
Joe Sandbox Complete analyses Office files for Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Hangul Hancom (Korean Office) and Ichitaro (Japanese Office). Support for additional Office suites can be easily added.
Joe Sandbox Complete enables to deeply analyze URLs to detect phishing, drive by downloads, tech scam and more. For phising detection Joe Sandbox Complete uses an AI based template matching approach. Joe Sandbox Complete will follow and click interesting links on browsed webpages.
Joe Sandbox Complete uses a growing set of over 2311+ generic Behavior Signatures to detect and classify malicious behavior activities such as Exploiting and Shellcode (for malicious documents), Persistence, Boot Survival, Spreading, Data Spying and Leakage and C&C Communication. Behavior Signatures are extendable and customizable and optionally are shared within a community.
Joe Sandbox Complete enables to use a mix of virtual and physical analysis machines for analysis. Physical devices are very helpful in order to deal with evasive malware which may not run on virtual systems.
With Joe Sandbox Complete analysts can directly connect to the analysis machine and click manually through complex malware installers or phishing attacks. The remote assistance option is fully embedded in the browser and therefore no additional software has to be installed.
Joe Sandbox Complete's Hybrid Code Analysis (HCA) engine identifies code functions based on dynamic memory dumps. HCA enables in-depth analysis of malware by understanding hidden payloads, malicious functionality not seen during runtime analysis. HCA results are highly annotated and connected to dynamic behavior information. Through an advanced algorithm, HCA identifies hidden API calls and hidden strings within codes.
Joe Sandbox Complete generates highly condensed control flow graphs, so called Execution Graphs. Execution Graphs enable to detect evasions against malware analysis systems. Furthermore Execution Graphs allow to rate the behavior by looking at API chains, execution coverage and loops. Joe Sandbox Complete also includes extensive library code detection.
Joe Sandbox Complete’s instrumentation engine enables monitoring any method or API call of VBA Macros embedded in Microsoft Office files (doc, docx, docxm, etc). The extracted dynamic information allows to detect and understand decrypted routines (via colored call graph), payload URLs and evasions. Moreover customer can add their own Pre and Post hooks to modify function parameters and return values.
Joe Sandbox Complete’s instrumentation engine enables monitoring Java API calls (including arguments, returns etc) of a JAR file. The extracted dynamic information allows to detect and understand Java malware such as JRAT or Adwind RAT.
Joe Sandbox Complete’s detects Phishing pages by using an AI based template matching approach. Customers can easily add additional templates to detect Phishing of their Web portals. Template matching based Phishing has very low false negative and false positive rates.
Joe Sandbox Complete enables to inspect HTTPS traffic. Similiar to a next generation firewall Joe Sandbox Complete installs a MITM SSL Proxy which intercepts and analyzes any SSL traffic. This allows to inspect malicious HTTPS C&C traffic which is often used in APTs.
Joe Sandbox Complete enables to analyze automatically the network data via Snort and "The Bro Network Security Monitor". Snort with e.g. Emerging Threats ETOpen/ETPro rules detects malicious IPs, Domains or other network artifacts and Files extracted by Bro are automatically uploaded to Joe Sandbox.
Joe Sandbox Complete allows to use Yara Rules for advanced malware detection. Joe Sandbox Complete forwards all samples, downloaded files, resources as well as memory dumps to Yara. In addition Joe Sandbox Complete features a nice web based Yara Rule editor. Tired of updating Yara rules? Joe Sandbox Complete enables to automatically synchronize with GitHub repositories contain Yara rules.
Joe Sandbox Complete allows to use Simga Rules for threat detection. Joe Sandbox currently supports many Sigma events including process_creation and Sysmon. In addition Joe Sandbox Complete features a nice web based Sigma Rule editor. Tired of updating your Sigma rules? Joe Sandbox Complete enables to automatically synchronize with GitHub repositories contain Simga rules.
Joe Sandbox Complete creates various Yara rules based on static, dynamic and hybrid behavior data. The generated Yara rules allow to identify specific malware, malware families and malware variants. Yara Rule Generator uses sophisticated data rating and clustering algorithms.
In addition to analysis reports in HTML, XML and JSON formats, Joe Sandbox Complete captures and generates supplementary data. This includes created files, unpacked PE files, memory dumps, PCAP of the captured network traffic, screenshots, shellcode and strings.
Joe Sandbox Complete reports are provided in all relevant export formats, ranging from common data exchange formats (XML, JSON) and document types (HTML, PDF) to malware security standards such as MAEC, CybOX, MISP and OpenIOC. Therefore, Joe Sandbox Complete reports can be seamlessly integrated with other tools and platforms.
Joe Sandbox Complete provides a MITRE ATT&CK matrix. With the matrix, analysts can easily compare adversary tactics and techniques. Joe Sandbox Complete contains over 2311+ behavior signatures which are mapped to tactics and techniques.
Joe Sandbox Complete has many Third Party Integrations. Detection results from Virustotal and MetaDefender are visualized in the analysis report. Joe Sandbox Complete also integrates with Incident Response Solutions such as TheHive, Fame, MISP and CRITs. You can also use Joe Sandbox Complete in the Security Automation & Orchestration Platform Phantom and Demisto. We also offer integration with additional tools such as Viper and Malsub.
Joe Sandbox Complete allows for seamless integration into existing threat intelligence systems. It has a simple RestFul WEB API which enables file upload, analysis data download, searches, filters, alerts and more. Example scripts in Python allow a fast integration.
Joe Sandbox Complete delivers an IDA plugin which loads supplementary analysis data such as memory dumps and reconstructed PE files. Moreover the plugin enriches IDA code with dynamic information such as APIs, chunks, strings and function arguments. IDA integration enables to deeply understand und further investigate malicious code with the power of IDA.
Joe Sandbox Complete is tuned to detect malicious samples with high precision. Extensive tests have shown an average false positive rate < 2% and false negative rate < 6% for PE files. Besides the detection status (clean, suspicious or malicious) Joe Sandbox Complete generates a detailed confidence score - outlining how certain the system is about the detection.
Through predefined and configurable Cookbooks - special scripts submitted as second input - Joe Sandbox Complete allows for performing advanced use cases on the analysis machine. Cookbook scripts describe an analysis procedure and allow any possible user behavior to be automated.
