Ransomware has forced organizations to rethink their security architecture.  Organizations are increasingly investing in security solutions that provide additional protection of sensitive data, as well as better visibility over network traffic and endpoint activity. According to IDC research, 60% of organizations surveyed indicated that modern endpoint and network security products such as network sandboxes were either a high priority or an extremely high priority over the next 12 months.

Network sandboxes are isolated environments where suspicious code can be examined and detonated to see what unidentified code wants to do on a potential system.  Over the past few years, sandboxing has become an integral part of the network security game plan but hackers have identified ways of evading detection which is something to consider in the evaluation process. In the video below, IDC’s Sean Pike, program vice president of IDC Security Products,  discusses network sandboxing and gives you key questions to ask when looking at this part of the network security equation.
