Advanced threat protection continued

Best practices / advice: Enterprises must have real-time defenses against known threats 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. They can then contain and learn from malicious content that is identified so it can then be blocked at the gateway. After investigating and resolving the full scope of incidents that do occur, the resulting intelligence must then be shared quickly 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.
