Dell SonicWall - Advance Threat Protection as a service

By

Sandboxing is good but stopping unknown and zero-day attacks at the gateway requires a cloud-based, multi-engine solution as well.

Dell Security has used the annual RSA security conference to launch its Dell SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection Service – a cloud based, adaptive, multi-engine, multi-layer approach that works with its SonicWALL firewalls to stop unknown and zero-day attacks.

Organisations 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, (registration required for the free 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, organisations need an intelligent, advanced threat detection system that not only analyses the behaviour 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.”

The triple combination of VMRay Analyser and Lastline Breach Detection with Dell SonicWALL Sonic Sandbox sandboxing engines that analyses suspicious objects in parallel, delivers a virtually evasion-proof security solution that not only analyses the file and reports malicious file behaviour 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.

“With the new Dell SonicWALL Capture service, Dell Security is offering the most effective advanced persistent threat (APT) prevention solution on 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,” said Curtis Hutcheson, general manager, Dell Security

The Dell SonicWALL Capture ATP Service solution is currently in a comprehensive beta evaluation and will be available for purchase by mid-year 2016. Dell Security solutions are available worldwide, both direct and through channel partners.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
