Malware evasion tactics are now fully present in the arsenal of threat actors. It’s essential that any threat detection technology remain hidden from malware to be able to effectively detect advanced attacks. Equally important, the technology must be able to detect malicious objects that don’t have signatures and to identify malicious capabilities — even if the malicious code hasn’t yet executed. SonicWall Capture Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) with Real-Time Deep Memory Inspection™ (RTDMI) technology offers an advanced layered defense to stay ahead of advanced evasive threats.

New SonicWall TZ570 and TZ670: Security for Modern SMBs and Branches
Last weekend I was at a well-known retail chain location to pick up an online order. To comply with social distancing recommendations, businesses have been fulfilling online orders at the curb. What struck me was that small businesses and branches are continuing to find new normal ways to continue doing business — and that the pandemic has just redefined the way we interact, but not operate. Businesses, more than ever, are being overwhelmed by the sheer volume of network traffic and need security solutions that scale, accommodate ever-increasing broadband speeds and fit within their limited budgets.
