SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection Service
SonicWall continued to build on its widely popular Capture Advanced Threat Protection service this year, saying in February that it had extended the capabilities to email for an additional layer of protection against zero-day and advanced threats. The Capture service uses three different network sandbox engines for a multilayer defense approach. The launch is significant because email remains one of the largest vectors for attacks on small and midsize businesses, with ransomware attacks alone up 167X year over year, Vice President of Worldwide Sales Steve Pataky said. For partners, Pataky said the offering opens up the doors for conversations around advanced threat protection and email security. SonicWall also previewed coming updates to its SonicOS, including deep packet inspection of DPI-SSH, biometric authentication, extended Dell X-Series integration, automated initial site-to-site VPN gateway provisioning, opening up the API to build a third-party ecosystem of threat intelligence, and providing visibility into connected devices and types for IoT devices.
