Combat the Staggering Rise of Zero-Day Threats

With the devastating rise of targeted, evasive, zero-day threats hitting IT infrastructures, computers, individuals and their devices, it is critical to have a multi-layer and revolutionary security solution. Today, at RSA Conference 2016, Feb. 29-Mar. 4 in San Francisco, we have launched the Dell SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Service, our multi-engine or triple layer approach, which advances sandboxing beyond detection to deliver end-to-end prevention.

For Dell’s next-generation firewalls, we offer a multi-engine advance persistent threat analysis sandboxing service that has broad OS and file type analysis. Once a threat is identified, it not only detects but blocks it from entering the network. Come by Dell booth 1007 in the South Hall, where we will showcase this extraordinary Dell SonicWALL Capture sandboxing service with our worldwide customers and partners.

The RSA conference is the premier security event for thousands of experts gathering to gain greater in-depth knowledge of cyber criminal techniques and plans of attack to stop these catastrophic threats. Such threats are evolving quickly to disguise themselves, as we recently learned in the 2016 Dell Security Annual Threat Report. For this threat report, Dell leveraged its Global Response Intelligence Defense (GRID) network and telemetry data, gathered from Dell SonicWALL sensors. We continue to provide secure environments for our customers, stopping 2.17 trillion IPS attacks and blocking 8.19 billion malware attacks, up from 4.2 billion attacks last year.  Virtual sandboxes and other advanced threat detection techniques have been developed by security professionals to more effectively analyze the behavior of suspicious files and uncover hidden malware.

Detecting zero-day threats is critical, but it is not enough; technology is required that not only inspects traffic for suspicious code but also gives IT control to block suspicious code from entering the network until after it’s analyzed.  This protects the network from infection, eliminating time consuming remedial tasks necessary to remediate damage. Additionally, follow-on attacks can be prevented with quickly generated IP signatures blocking newly discovered malware from automatically being distributed across network security devices.

This superior Dell SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Service is a cloud based service for Dell SonicWALL next-generation firewalls and Unified Threat Management Firewalls (UTM) that detects and blocks until the verdict is determined. SonicWALL Capture is the only advanced threat protection offering that starts at the gateway, and includes multi-layer sandbox technologies that use system emulation, virtualization, and memory analysis techniques that not only detects but can block based on verdict before it infects the defended network. Our customers and partners benefit from high security effectiveness, fast response times, and reduced total cost of ownership. This system is available in beta.

If you come to the booth, you will not only get to experience this ground breaking technology, but you will also talk to Dell experts and see live demonstrations of the Dell SonicWALL Firewall Sandwich, Dell Safeguard Privileged Management and other Dell One Identity Solutions, Dell Secure Mobile Access solutions, Dell SonicWALL Email Security Encryption in booth 1007. For our commercial PCs, Dell Data Protection and Encryption and Data Security will also be showcased.

 Finally, join me and my Dell Security and Dell SecureWorks colleagues for these inspiring speaking sessions:

  • March 2 at 10:20 – Threat Actor Pivoting and the Underground Market for your Data.
  • March 4 at 11:30 – Are you worthy? Laws of Privileged Account Management.
