Protect endpoints from malware, exploits and ransomware

Endpoints secured, everywhere

Traps™ advanced endpoint protection stops threats on the endpoint and coordinates enforcement with cloud and network security to prevent successful cyberattacks.





Stop endpoint attacks before they get started

An attacker must complete a sequence of events to steal information or run ransomware. And nearly every attack relies on compromising an endpoint. Traps disrupts an attack before it can infect an endpoint. By combining multiple methods of prevention, Traps stands apart in its ability to protect endpoints. It blocks security breaches and successful ransomware attacks that leverage malware and exploits, known or unknown, before they can compromise endpoints.

Automatically Convert Threat Intelligence Into Prevention

Easy, efficient management

Simple cloud-based management

With the Traps management service, a cloud-based endpoint security service, you save the time and cost of having to build out your own global security infrastructure. Deployment is simple and fast, requiring no server licenses, databases or other infrastructure to get started.

Intuitive user experience

Traps provides an intuitive interface that makes it easy to manage policies and events, and accelerate incident response – helping to minimize the operational challenges associated with protecting your endpoints. From the Traps management service web console, you can manage the endpoint security policy, review security events as they occur, and perform additional analysis of associated logs.

Lightweight, non-disruptive agent

The Traps agent enforces your security policy on the endpoint and reports when it detects a threat. The Traps endpoint agent consists of various drivers and services yet requires minimal memory and CPU usage to ensure a non-disruptive user experience. Following its deployment, system administrators have complete control over all Traps agents in the environment through the Traps management service.
