  • Seamless integration with WatchGuard Dimension for complete visibility
  • Deploy in seconds as part of an integrated security solution
  • Delivers Instant threat response with automated alerts
  • Average analysis time of less than two minutes

Combat Evolving Threats

As threats continue to evolve and become more complex, there is not one technology that can provide complete threat protection on its own. That’s why at WatchGuard, we take a layered approach to network security, continually staying ahead of the evolving threat landscape with a suite of powerful security services. Signature-based defenses are still critical as a first line of defense, eliminating known threats at the gateway. However, you still need protection against unknown attacks that make it past the first layers of security. That’s where APT Blocker comes in, providing your next level in advanced malware detection and prevention.

 

Prevent, Detect, and Resolve

WatchGuard APT Blocker focuses on behavioral analysis to determine if a file is malicious, identifying and submitting suspicious files to a cloud-based sandbox where the code is emulated, executed, and analyzed to determine its threat potential. If the suspected file is found to be malicious, APT Blocker quickly takes action to ensure your network and digital assets stay secure.

 

Full System Emulation Simulates Physical Hardware

Modern malware, including advanced persistent threats, ransomware, and zero-day attacks, are designed to recognize and evade traditional defenses. APT Blocker’s full system emulation – which simulates physical hardware including CPU and memory – provides the most comprehensive level of protection against advanced malware.

 

Easy to Use

WatchGuard APT Blocker not only provides comprehensive protection against advanced malware, it does with a simple and intuitive user interface. From the management console, you can access easy-to-use controls that enable you to allow, drop, block, or quarantine by severity level, as well as set customized notifications for when APT Blocker detects a threat.

 

Unparalleled Visibility

Gain complete visibility into the advanced threats attempting to attack your network, including the protocols used, threat IDs, sender source, and the specific types of malicious activities that would have happened if APT Blocker did not take action.
