Advanced Malware Protection

Advanced Malware Detection and Prevention

Small to midsize businesses (SMBs) and distributed enterprises continue to fall victim to advanced malware attacks that have a serious impact on business operations and continuity. WatchGuard’s Total Security Suite is the most comprehensive UTM service in the industry, enabling organizations to not only detect and remediate these sophisticated attacks, but actually prevent them as well. Total Security Suite combines multiple advanced security services that work in tandem to deliver powerful, layered protection. With APT Blocker, Threat Detection and Response, and Host Ransomware Prevention, WatchGuard enables any organization to protect their business from the most advanced malware, including zero day attacks, ransomware, and other threats designed to evade traditional security defenses.

Host Ransomware Prevention (HRP) is a ransomware-specific module within the WatchGuard Host Sensor. HRP leverages a behavioral analytics engine and a decoy directory honeypot to monitor a wide array of characteristics, determining if a given action is associated with a ransomware attack or not. If it’s determined that the threat is malicious, HRP can automatically prevent a ransomware attack before file encryption on the endpoint takes place.

What makes today’s threats so dangerous is that they can easily morph into code that will slip by signature-based products looking for a recognizable malware pattern. WatchGuard’s APT Blocker uses award-winning, next-generation sandbox technology to analyze traffic for potential threats. By detonating suspicious code in a harmless virtual environment, it can determine if the code is malicious and prevent it from executing on the network.
