The ever-growing threat of ransomware and other malicious malware-based attacks has proven that client protection solutions cannot be measured based only on endpoint compliance. Traditional antivirus technology uses a long-embattled signature-based approach, which has failed to match the pace of emerging malware and evasion techniques. Those demand a different approach to client protection. Furthermore, with the proliferation of telecommuting, mobility and BYOD, there is a dire need to deliver consistent protection for endpoints anywhere.
SonicWall Capture Client is a unified endpoint offering with multiple protection capabilities. With a nextgeneration malware protection engine powered by SentinelOne, Capture Client applies advanced threat protection techniques, such as machine learning and system rollback. Capture Client also leverages the deep inspection of encrypted TLS traffic (DPI-SSL) on SonicWall firewalls by installing and managing trusted TLS certificates.
Capture Client co-exists with the SonicWall Content Filtering Client and the SonicWall Global VPN Client. Policies for all products can be managed from a single cloud-based management console. Capture Client can be easily added to any client deployed either through Microsoft Active Directory group policies or any other third-party software deployment techniques; or through the delivery of customized URLs where clients can download and silently self-install without any additional intervention. And, when integrated with SonicWall firewalls, Capture Client delivers a zero-touch silent experience for deployment on unprotected clients.
Features and Benefits Continuous behavioral monitoring of the client helps create a complete profile of file activity, application and process activity, and network activity. This allows for protection against both file-based and fileless malware and delivers a 360-degree attack view with actionable intelligence relevant for investigations.
Multiple layered, heuristic-based techniques for protection include cloud intelligence, advanced static analysis and dynamic behavioral protection. These helps protect against and remediate known and unknown malware.
No need for regular scans or periodic updates enables the highest level of protection at all times without hampering Users productivity.
Unique rollback capabilities also support policies that not only remove the threat completely but also restore a targeted client to the state before the malware activity initiated. This eliminates the need for manual restoration in the case of ransomware and similar attacks.
Cloud-based management console reduces the footprint and overhead of management. It also improves the ability to deploy and enforce endpoint protection, wherever the endpoint is.
