Dell has launched SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection Service, which according to the company, enhances organisations’ ability to safeguard against today’s shape-shifting cyber threats.
Taking a first-to-market, adaptive, multi-engine sandboxing approach, Dell Security is incorporating the VMRay third-generation Analyzer threat detection analysis engine with the Lastline Breach Detection platform and the Dell SonicWALL Sonic Sandbox threat analysis engine, to deliver a three-layer level of defense that organisations need to safeguard against today’s unknown threats. This new cloud offering reinforces the commitment Dell Security has made to delivering comprehensive protection against the meteoric growth of zero-day attacks targeting businesses today, as identified in the Dell Security 2015 Threat Report.
Industry analyst firm Gartner stated, “IT risk and security leaders must invest in technical, procedural and human capabilities to detect when a compromise occurs. They must provide the tools for first responders to react quickly and investigate the source and impact of breaches, compromises and incidents.”
The triple combination of VMRay Analyzer and Lastline Breach Detection with Dell SonicWALL Sonic Sandbox sandboxing engines, which analyses suspicious objects in parallel, delivers a virtually evasion-proof security solution that not only analyses the file and reports malicious file behavior, but automates security by blocking malware at the gateway until a verdict is determined. SonicWALL Capture conducts not only virtual sandbox analysis, but also full system emulation and hypervisor-level analysis across all key OS environments, and file types for virtually any file size. Further infiltration of the identified malware/threat is prevented with fast deployment of remediation signatures through the Dell SonicWALL GRID, Dell Security’s cloud forensics platform that leverages real-time analytics from more than one million connected next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) worldwide. The service scales to specific organisational needs by leveraging the cloud subscription service delivery model, which works in concert with all Dell SonicWALL NGFWs.
Curtis Hutcheson, general manager, Dell Security, said, “With the new Dell SonicWALL Capture service, Dell Security is offering the most effective advanced persistent threat (APT) prevention solution in the market, and this service a significant proof point in our strategy to integrate best-of-breed partners into our Connected Security platform. It gives our customers and partners access to the latest leading detection technologies, integrated with Dell SonicWALL next-generation firewalls to provide more comprehensive and proactive security solutions.”
