Enterprises must have real-time defenses against known viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, and other malicious content through secure Web gateways along with network-based malware scanning and application whitelisting. For unknown threats, advanced sandboxing technologies can analyze unknown content to see if it’s malicious and then contain and learn from malicious content that is identified, so it can then be blocked at the gateway. After quickly investigating and resolving the full scope of incidents that do occur, the resulting intelligence must then be shared with the gateway for future protection. Automating this process makes it possible for day-to-day security operations and advanced security teams to work together to protect and empower the business.

It’s no secret that IT security threats keep evolving. Today’s advanced persistent threats (APTs) are increasingly sophisticated, diverse, targeted, aggressive…and successful. Security breaches still happen at an alarming rate, despite the fact that security technologies and processes keep evolving too. The lack of in-house enterprise expertise highlights an organizational gap that exists between the day-to-day operations team and the advanced security teams that contain and resolve incidents. This gap is worsened by the tendency of traditional advanced threat solutions to operate in a silo – and not share new threat intelligence across the security environment.
