Sophos announced that its Sophos Email Appliance now includes Sophos Sandstorm , an advanced, next-generation sandboxing
technology that quickly and accurately detects, blocks and responds to sophisticated, constantly-changing cyber threats.
Sophos Sandstorm is an advanced persistent threat (APT) and zero day malware security technology. To combat elusive threats that target email accounts on multiple platforms and mobile devices, companies need signature less protection in addition to traditional malware protection. Threats are now engineered to be “low and slow” to stay under the radar, using polymorphic and stealth techniques to avoid and delay detection. Today’s cybercriminals
are also proactively taking steps to target, research and crack an
organization’s specific security measures by sending bespoke malware attached to seemingly-benign email messages. Sophos Sandstorm uses powerful cloud-based technology to isolate and address these types of threats before they enter a business network.
