Check Point’s SandBlast Agent Extends Zero-Day Security to All Systems, Wherever They May Be

The security solution integrates new protections and advanced forensics to secure endpoint devices.

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. has introduced Check Point SandBlast Agent, an extension of the company’s perimeter security and zero-day protection technology SandBlast, designed to keep endpoint devices and the data stored on them safe no matter where they go. In addition to the protection provided by sandboxing and threat extraction, the security solution integrates zero-day protection for the endpoint with automated forensics and incident response capabilities.

In an increasingly connected world, workers need to access business information through a variety of devices, says the company, but protection for these devices is limited by traditional, signature-based, anti-virus agents that only detect known threats. Given this, hackers are now increasingly targeting devices with more sophisticated zero-day attacks such as new evasive variants of†cryptowall†and†cryptolocker†malware.

Key features of SandBlast Agent include:

  • Protection directly on the endpoint to detect and block advanced attacks from email, removable media, and web-based threats such as spear phishing and watering holes.
  • Detects suspicious communication activity generated by infected devices, blocks attempts to exfiltrate sensitive data from the organization, and quarantines infected endpoints to prevent the spread of the infection.
  • Automated incident analysis capability to provide full visibility into security events. With its automated forensics capabilities, SandBlast Agent builds interactive reports to fully understand the root cause, malware entry points, and scope of damage to limit the spread of malware and the damage it may cause.

“Organizations face significant challenges as hackers aggressively target end-user systems with a range of advanced threats aimed at bypassing signature-based antivirus security products,” says Nathan Shuchami, head of threat prevention, Check Point. “With SandBlast Agent, we are able to prevent attacks based on the latest and most advanced malware techniques, whether users are inside or outside the network perimeter.”
