Dell Unveils SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection Service

SAN FRANCISCO – RSA CONFERENCE 2016 – Enterprise technology giant Dell announced the launch of SonicWALL Capture Advanced Threat Protection Service, a new offering aimed at delivering better protection against advanced cyber threats.

The new solution employs an adaptive, multi-engine sandboxing approach and incorporates the VMRay Analyzer threat detection analysis engine, the Lastline Breach Detection platform, and the Dell SonicWALL Sonic Sandbox threat analysis engine.

Dell explained that the new three-layer service was designed to provide customers with an advanced threat detection system capable of discovering hidden malware. Moving beyond the analysis of suspicious files’ behavior, the solution is designed to mitigate advanced threats and malware designed to detect the presence of a virtual sandbox to evade discovery.

The service includes virtual sandbox analysis along with full system emulation and hypervisor-level analysis across all key OS environments. It prevents further infiltration with fast deployment of remediation signatures by leveraging the Dell SonicWALL GRID, the cloud forensics platform that gathers real-time analytics from more than one million connected next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) worldwide.

The SonicWALL Capture platform supports analysis of files of any size and for a range of file types, including executable programs, DLL, PDFs, Microsoft Office documents, archives, JAR, and APK. Additionally, it supports operating systems including Windows, Android, and Mac OS X.

Security administrators can customize protection by selecting or excluding files to be sent to the cloud for analysis, including by file type, file size, sender, recipient and protocol. Administrators can submit files to the cloud service manually for analysis.

The new Dell SonicWALL Capture ATP Service is currently in beta testing and should become available for purchase by mid 2016.
