ThreatCloud™ Real-time Security Intelligence Feeds
ThreatCloud is a collaborative network and cloud-driven knowledge base that delivers real-time dynamic security intelligence to security gateways. That intelligence is used to identify emerging outbreaks and threat trends. ThreatCloud powers the Antivirus Software Blade allowing gateways to investigate always-changing malware signatures. Since processing is done in the cloud, millions of signatures and malware protection can be scanned in real time.
ThreatCloud’s knowledgebase is dynamically updated using attack information from worldwide gateways, feeds from a network of global threat sensors, Check Point research labs and the industry’s best malware feeds. Correlated security threat information is then shared among all gateways collectively.
Prevent Access to Malicious Websites
Antivirus scans outbound URL requests and ensures users do not visit websites known to distribute malware. The constantly updated knowledgebase offers over 300,000 sites from ThreatCloud.
Antivirus offers extensive forensics
Forensics provides administrators and security teams with vital information needed to analyze security events, investigate infections, and assess damages. Antivirus includes:
- Detailed infection information per malware type and/or infected users and machines
- Identified malware names and infection severity
- ThreatWiki – extensive infection information (malware type, description and any available details such as executables run, used protocols etc.)
- Packet capture – view data sent using complete per-session packet capture with SSL/TLS inspection
Stop incoming malware attacks
Antivirus stops incoming malware attacks with 300x more signatures than previous versions. Multiple malware detection engines focused on signature, behavioral, and reputation offer full protection. Check Point security intelligence feeds its ThreatCloud database with real-time data, identifying outbound connections to resources known to contain malicious content.
Integrated malware reports and dashboards
Malware reports and dashboards are integrated in SmartEvent with infection summaries and trends to provide better visibility to organizational malware threats and risks. This allows you to view infected hosts statistics, malware types and activities, trends/changes vs. previous week/month, amount of data sent or received, and more.
Inspect SSL/TLS encrypted traffic
Scan and secure SSL/TLS encrypted traffic passing through the gateway. When traffic is passed through, the gateway decrypts the traffic with the sender’s public key, inspects, and protects, then re-encrypts, sending the newly encrypted content to the receiver.
To protect user privacy and comply with corporate policies, Antivirus offers granularly define exceptions for SSL/TLS inspection. As some encrypted content passing through the gateway does not need to be inspected, it can be bypassed with a simple administrator policy definition.
