Sandbox solutions: More protection from Trojans & Co

Sandbox solutions: More protection from Trojans & Co

Serious threats from malware continue to grow, attacks are more cunning, highly developed, and precisely targeted. Traditional spam and virus scanners don’t do a satisfactory job anymore. Sandbox solutions are perfect because advance filters detect complex and hidden malware, building an important feature in a multi-level security strategy.

Take advantage of our free webinars to learn how to protect your business from new threats effectively with sandbox behaviour analysis from GBS.
