WatchGuard Partners Lastline to Launch APT Blocker

WatchGuardTechnologies, a leader in integrated security platforms, today announced its new Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) solution, WatchGuard APT Blocker. Delivering real-time threat visibility and protection in minutes, not hours, APT Blocker identifies and submits suspicious files to a cloud-based, next-generation sandbox, using the industry’s most sophisticated full-system-emulation environment for detecting APTs and zero day malware. The WatchGuard solution integrates with the company’s visibility tool, WatchGuardDimension, providing an instant, single view of advanced threats, along with other top trends, applications and threats covered by WatchGuard’s security technologies. 
WatchGuard and Lastline
APT Blocker comes pre-installed on all WatchGuard Unified Threat Management (UTM) and Next-Gen Firewall (NGFW) appliances with a free 30-day trial.  WatchGuard has extended their proprietary proxy-based architecture to detect suspicious files and send them for full-system emulation and analysis in the cloud. By adding an additional layer to the deep-packet-inspection engine, WatchGuard’s highly respected detection capabilities now extend from the universe of known threats (malware for which there is a known pattern) into the unknown.

“Nearly 88 percent of today’s malware can morph to avoid detection by signature-based AntiVirus solutions*,” said Corey Nachreiner, director of security strategy and research for WatchGuard Technologies. “That means today’s AntiVirus solutions remain necessary for catching known threats but alone, they’re no longer sufficient. APT Blocker’s full-system emulation approach to sandboxing provides simple, rapid protection, which doesn’t rely on a traditional, signature-based approach to detect and stop advanced malware; in a solution that scales to inspect millions of objects at any given time.”

WatchGuard’s UTM and NGFW security platforms were purpose-built to simplify the process of adding newly-emerging technologies such as APT management, meaning customers can deploy this sophisticated technology in a couple of clicks.  Continuing the strategy of working with best-of-breed technology partners, WatchGuard has teamed with industry veteran and APT heavyweight, Lastline, for cloud-based, full-system-emulation inspection capabilities. Lastline’s founding team has been doing advanced malware research for more than 10 years and their commercial products have significant credibility in protecting businesses against today’s unknown APT threats.

“WatchGuard is recognised as a leader in the network security space,” said Brian Laing, vice president of products for Lastline. “We are thrilled to strike up this partnership to combat advanced cyber threats. With nearly a million red WatchGuard appliances installed worldwide and our unique, cloud-based sandboxing capabilities for detecting advanced malware, companies worldwide now instantly will have access to the industry’s most sophisticated technologies to stop evasive malware designed to bypass traditional security products.”

Historically, APT targets were exclusively governments and large enterprises whose critical infrastructures were stymied by the likes of Stuxnet and Duqu. But today, advanced threats have evolved to target much smaller organisations and corporations to similarly devastating effect. Scott Robertson, Vice President of Asia Pacific for WatchGuard Technologies adds, “Since today’s APT targets are not anticipating these threats, they are not sufficiently protected. Often relying almost entirely on AntiVirus and digital-signature solutions, these networks are almost completely vulnerable.” (Click here to view an infographic on the evolution of APT.)

APT Blocker is now available and comes pre-installed with a free 30-day trial with the launch of version 11.9 of WatchGuard’s Fireware security platform, which includes other best-of-breed services such as: AntiVirus, AntiSpam, Application Control and DLP. Fireware also comes standard with WatchGuard Dimension, the company’s award-winning, real-time visibility solution.

Major highlights of version 11.9 include:
- Improved application-traffic management, allowing users to control and limit application bandwidth, preserving it for business-critical applications;
- Expanded administrator-audit and change-tracking visibility for improved HIPAA and PCI compliance, including tying firewall rule changes to individuals;
- Customizable DLP signatures that allow companies to build on the extensive pre-defined rule sets of WatchGuard’s DLP solution;
- Enhanced IPv6 support including link aggregation, VLANS and dynamic routing;
- New custom network zone that allows administrators to quickly segregate wireless guest networks and meet PCI-standard requirements for appliances with integrated wireless.

Apacer rolls out SATA3 SSD for the Big Data of Cloud Era

As Taiwan’s Cloud computing and Big Data enters the phase of implementation this year, Apacer launched SATA 3 large capacity SFD 25H-M SSD. It possesses an ultra-large storage capacity of 1TB, with sequential read/write speed of 510/420MB/sec, marking a significant specification enhancement and an advance to virtualization technology of Big Data storage. Enterprises’ overall data processing performance will be strengthened.

Apacer SFD 25H-M SSD
Jeff Lin, Embedded Application Business Unit Director of Apacer, remarks, “Most Cloud servers require frequent access to hard disks. So it is a very good choice for Big Data storage devices to take SSD as its Cache and to boost the overall efficiency.” SFD 25H-M adopts SATA 3.0 high-speed transmission interface, as well as 1x nm Toggle DDR 2.0 NAND Flash chip, endowing it with perfect performance. On the other hand, the advantage of its large capacity up to 1TB not only saves the storage space inside servers and reduces server heat output, but also economizes enterprises’ TCO and avoids depleting enterprise resources. Moreover, enterprises will be able to safeguard the storage and backup of their big data generated every day, enhancing their enterprise competitiveness.

In consideration of the demands of other industrial applications, its 512GB is also designed to operate in the harsh environment of industry-level extended temperature (-40°C ~ 85°C). The product also features anti-shock, anti-vibration, low-power consumption and high-speed transmission. It can improve the access efficiency of servers as an alternative to traditional hard disks, and provides outstanding efficiency and highly reliable operating environment. Furthermore, it can be applied to embedded devices for medical, military, gaming, and transportation etc., especially in airborne surveillance system. SFD 25H-M is able to keep on recording data repeatedly when working at heights and in low temperatures. All in all, it is the most reliable storage device for enterprises under stable conditions.
Apacer SFD 25H-M SSD
With more than 15 years of experience in the SSD market, Apacer is one of the few Taiwanese manufacturers with software, hardware and firmware R&D capacity and can launch pioneering products ahead of its industrial peers. It also enjoys robust manufacturing quality, excellent customizability and real-time technical supports. Once recognized and validated by the client, its firmware and main components can be fixed immediately and supplied to the client in a stable and highly reliable manner, hence reducing the risks of undersupply and incompatibility.
