If you pictured a specific technology exemplified as an animal what would it be?  Cars have been visualized as horses and bulls and the names like Mustang, Pinto, and Taurus all ring a bell with us. We see this in cyber security as well.  We have worms, bugs, and Trojan [horses] (I know that’s a stretch).  If you picture ransomware viruses as malicious bugs then you would see Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) as a spider.

Spiders are the perfect foe of bugs. They sit in wait within perfectly designed traps and focus their energy on processing their prey.  SonicWall Capture ATP, multi-engine cloud-based sandbox, does just that; as a network sandbox it awaits suspicious code in order to process it to see what it wants to do from the application, to the OS, to the software residing on the hardware. If you read up on Cerber ransomware, you will see one of the most advanced persistent threats known today.  You will see how it evades traditional security and employs evasion tactics to get around network sandboxes. Thanks to Capture ATP’s parallel processing multi-engine sandbox, catching Cerber is easily done.

Capture ATP is not only successful versus Cerber and other nasty forms of ransomware, but it also finds many other forms of malware too.  Last year, SonicWall detected over 60 million new and updated malware; that’s roughly two per second.  With that volume of malware being processed on a daily basis, it’s important to have a network sandbox in place to catch yet-to-be-discovered malware before it can make itself known by locking your desktops and encrypting your files.

Watch the video below to see how Solutions Granted, Inc., a Platinum Partner, CEO, Michael Crean, sees the benefits of using Capture ATP.

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m
not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
