Dell has announced the launch of the Dell SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection Service, which enhances organizations’ ability to safeguard against today’s shape-shifting cyber threats. Taking a first-to-market, adaptive, multi-engine sandboxing approach, Dell Security is incorporating the VMRay third-generation Analyzer threat detection analysis engine with the Lastline Breach Detection platform and the Dell SonicWALL Sonic Sandbox threat analysis engine, to deliver a three-layer level of defense that organizations need to safeguard against today’s unknown threats. This new cloud offering reinforces the commitment Dell Security has made to delivering comprehensive protection against the meteoric growth of zero-day attacks targeting businesses today, as identified in the Dell Security 2015 Threat Report. The Dell SonicWall Capture Service will be showcased this week at RSA.
Today, organizations 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, 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, organizations need an intelligent, advanced threat detection system that not only analyzes the behavior 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.”
“Security remains a major concern for organizations, especially on their journey in Cloud. This has compelled IT Decision Makers to have a higher focus on implementing the best security practices and solutions,” says Amit Singh, Country Manager, Dell SonicWALL. “With the addition of Dell SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Service to our security portfolio, we are able to provide world class end-to-end security offerings to our customers in the cloud which protects them from all kinds of cyber-threats.”
Curtis Hutcheson, general manager, Dell Security said, “This solution is a significant proof point in our strategy to integrate best-of-breed partners into our Connected Security platform. This 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.”
The Dell SonicWALL Capture ATP Service solution is currently in a comprehensive beta evaluation and will be available for purchase by mid-year 2016. The Dell SonicWALL Capture ATP Service solution will be showcased at the RSA Conference Feb. 29 – March 3 in San Francisco, Dell booth #1007.
