The tail end of 2013, and right into the New Year, has kept enterprise security teams working around the clock. Stealthy, persistent attacks have compromised tens of millions of customer records, often lurking in networks for extended periods of time to accomplish their mission. When it comes to these advanced attacks, one thing is clear: security teams require visibility into all traffic flowing over their network, irrespective of common evasions like port-hopping or hiding in SSL encryption.
With the new features in PAN-OS 6.0, Palo Alto Networks is delivering a breakthrough release for WildFire, extending our malware detection capabilities to more file types, discovering zero-day exploits, and simplifying the job of security and IR teams with granular malware intelligence.
WildFire now provides:
These new features build on the native classification of all traffic within our Enterprise Security Platform, which includes visibility into nearly 400 applications that can transfer files, regardless of ports or encryption. Unlike other APT solutions, WildFire is built to understand threats based on how they truly operate, with the context of the applications used to deliver them, using a single integrated platform.
You can learn more about our new capabilities in the WildFire datasheet or PAN-OS 6.0 release notes. And take a minute to watch this short video covering new WildFire features.
