Check Point Sandblast Zero-day Protection – Workshop (One Day Course)

Vendor: Check Point
Course Outline


Zero-day and advanced
persistent threats use the element of surprise to bypass traditional
security, making these threats difficult to protect against—and very
popular with hackers. Traditional sandboxing was designed to help with
these types of threats, but cybercriminals have evolved their
techniques, creating evasive malware that can avoid detection by many
sandbox solutions. As a result, many organizations find themselves
taking reactive steps to counteract infection, rather than preventing it
in the first place.

To get ahead, enterprises need a multi-faceted
prevention strategy that combines proactive protection that eliminates
threats before they reach users, and state-of-the-art CPU-level exploit
detection to expose even the most highly camouflaged threats.
