Dell Security Multi-Engine Approach Advances Sandboxing Beyond Threat Detection to Complete Prevention with New SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Service

Dell today at RSA announced the launch of the Dell SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection Service, which enhances organizations’ 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 organizations 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 2016 Threat Report. The Dell SonicWALL Capture Service will be showcased this week at RSA.

Today, organizations of every size are targeted by a diverse range of cyber criminals who continually seek, find and exploit security holes in applications and infrastructure to gain access to the network, often perpetrating serious harm within minutes. According to the newly published 2016 Dell Security Annual Threat Report, the Dell SonicWALL Threat Research Team documented a 73 percent increase in unique malware samples collected over the previous year. Most of these threats were targeted, evasive and zero-day attacks found across computing systems and devices.

With smarter threats and malware often designed to detect the presence of a virtual sandbox and evade discovery, organizations need an intelligent, advanced threat detection system that not only analyzes the behavior of suspicious files, but also uncovers hidden malware without being detected itself.

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.”1

Evasion-proof protection against zero-day and advanced persistent threats

The triple combination of VMRay Analyzer and Lastline Breach Detection with Dell SonicWALL Sonic Sandbox sandboxing engines, which analyzes suspicious objects in parallel, delivers a virtually evasion-proof security solution that not only analyzes 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 organizational needs by leveraging the cloud subscription service delivery model, which works in concert with all Dell SonicWALL NGFWs.
