Multiply the effectiveness of your advanced threat protection sandbox
For effective zero-day threat protection, organisations need solutions that include malware-analysis technologies and can detect evasive advanced threats and malware — today and tomorrow.
To protect customers against the increasing dangers of zero-day threats, Dell SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection Service — a cloud-based service available with Dell SonicWALL firewalls — detects and blocks suspected advanced threats at the gateway until a verdict is determined. This service is the only advanced-threat-detection offering that combines multi-layer sandboxing, including full system emulation and virtualisation techniques, to analyse suspicious code behavior.
This powerful combination detects more threats than single-engine sandbox solutions, which are compute-environment specific and susceptible to evasion. The solution scans traffic and extracts suspicious code for analysis, but unlike other gateway solutions, has no file size limitation. Global-threat intelligence infrastructure rapidly deploys remediation signatures for newly identified threats to all Dell SonicWALL network security appliances, thus preventing further infiltration. Customers benefit from high-security effectiveness, fast response times and reduced total cost of ownership.
Features and Benefits
Multi-engine advanced threat analysis
Dell SonicWALL Capture Service extends firewall threat protection to detect and prevent zero-day attacks. The firewall inspects traffic and detects and blocks intrusions and known malware. Suspicious files are sent to the Dell SonicWALL Capture cloud service for analysis. The multi-engine sandbox platform, which includes virtualised sandboxing, full system emulation and hypervisor-level analysis technology, executes suspicious code and analyses behaviour, provides comprehensive visibility to malicious activity while resisting evasion tactics and maximising zero-day threat detection.
Broad file type analysis and no file size limitation
The service supports analysis of files of any size and for a broad range of file types, including executable programs (PE), DLL, PDFs, MS Office documents, archives, JAR and APK, plus multiple operating systems including Windows, Android and Mac OSX. Administrators can customise protection by selecting or excluding files to be sent to the cloud for analysis by file type, file size, sender, recipient or protocol. In addition, administrators can manually submit files to the cloud service for analysis.
Blocks until verdict
To prevent potentially malicious files from entering the network, files sent to the cloud service for analysis can be held at the gateway until a verdict is determined.
Rapid deployment of remediation signatures
When a file is identified as malicious, a signature is immediately deployed to firewalls with Dell SonicWALL Capture subscriptions to prevent follow-on attacks. In addition, the malware is submitted to the Dell SonicWALL Threat Intelligence Team for further analysis and inclusion with threat information into the Gateway Anti-Virus and IPS signature databases. Additionally, it is sent to URL, IP and domain reputation databases within 48 hours.
Reporting and Alerts
The Dell SonicWALL Capture Service provides an at-a-glance threat analysis dashboard and reports, which sets out in detail the analysis results for files sent to the service. Information included in these reports cover session data, OS information, and OS and network activity. Firewall log alerts provide notification of suspicious files sent to the Dell SonicWALL Capture Service, and the file analysis verdict.
