What makes today’s threats so dangerous is that they can easily morph into code that will evade traditional forms of malware pattern recognition and defense. WatchGuard’s APT Blocker uses award-winning, next-generation sandbox technology to analyse traffic to detect potential threats before malware can reach your network. By detonating suspicious code in a harmless virtual environment, WatchGuard’s APT Blocker can determine the full attack lifecycle of a file and prevent it from entering the network.
Features & Benefits
Threats have nowhere to hide
Advanced threats, including APTs (advanced persistent threats), are designed to recognize traditional forms of malicious code detection and use evasive methods to remain concealed on victim networks. APT Blocker’s full system emulation – which simulates physical hardware, including CPU and memory – provides the deepest level of visibility into malware behavior without compromising your network.
Layers of Security
APT Blocker works in tandem with our Gateway AntiVirus (GAV) for the ultimate solution in detecting and preventing advanced malware. First GAV eliminates known threats, saving processing power by pre-filtering known threats so that only suspicious files are sent to APT Blocker. If the suspected file is found to be dangerous, APT Blocker quickly takes action to ensure your network and digital assets stay secure.
Easy to Use
APT Blocker not only provides comprehensive protection against advanced malware, it does so with a simple and intuitive user interface. From the management console, you can access easy-to-use controls that enable you to allow, drop, block, or quarantine by severity level, as well as set customised notifications for APT Blocker detection events.
Gain complete visibility into the advanced threats attempting to attack your network with WatchGuard Dimension, which comes standard on all WatchGuard UTM solutions. You’ll know the protocols used, threat IDs, source information, and the specific types of malicious activities that would have happened if APT Blocker did not take action. Over 100 reports and dashboards enable summary and granular reporting – invaluable in demonstrating compliance with industry and government regulations.
