SonicWall Capture ATP Receives ICSA Labs ATD Certification


With data breaches continuing to make headlines almost daily and new attack vectors surfacing seemingly every month, it is important to protect your environment against unknown threats.

We’re excited to announce that SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) has received ICSA Labs Advanced Threat Defense Certification for the third consecutive quarter.

ICSA Labs, an independent division of Verizon, tested a combination of our NSa 3600 Next-Gen Firewall and Cloud-based Capture ATP, featuring our Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection™ (RTDMI) engine, for 33 days and put the combined solution through 1,412 test runs to verify its effectiveness. As a result, Capture ATP received a 99.6% detection rate for previously unknown threats with just one false positive.

Of threats one hour old or less, SonicWall Capture ATP detected over 99% of these new threats,” according to the report. It also noted, “The SonicWall solution was also over 99% effective against threats between one and two hours old,” proving the effectiveness of the solution against unknown threats.

What is ICSA Advanced Threat Defense?

Standard ICSA Labs Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) testing is aimed at vendor solutions designed to detect new threats that other traditional security products miss. Thus, the focus is on how effectively vendor ATD solutions detect these unknown and little-known threats while minimizing false positives. The minimum required score for passing the test is 75%.
