Virus attacks are the most elusive yet damaging of email threats. Disguised as personal, professional or unsolicited email, viruses cause havoc to networks worldwide on a daily basis. Networks are extremely vulnerable between the time of a virus outbreak and when an anti-virus signature is available. This window of vulnerability is often 24 hours or longer, causing destruction and vast costs. The complexity and speed of virus attacks is so overwhelming, typical point-product anti-virus solutions are not enough. A multilayered approach is essential to virus protection for any organization.
Equally as menacing, zombie attacks, can disrupt business operations for days. zombies are remote-controlled code that get installed on end-user systems and send spam, phishing and viruses using corporate email systems. These zombie attacks can lead to corporate domain blacklisting, network bandwidth deterioration, intellectual property theft and substantial costs to purge malicious code.
Dell™ SonicWALL™ Email Anti-Virus Subscription further augments Dell SonicWALL GRID Anti-Virus to deliver powerful protection from viruses and Zombie attacks. This essential subscription service includes Dell SonicWALL Time Zero Anti-Virus, anti-virus signatures from industry leader McAfee® and zombie detection.
Features and benefits
Dell SonicWALL Time Zero Anti-Virus uses predictive and responsive technologies to protect organizations from virus infections before signature updates are available. The suspect emails are identified and immediately quarantined.
Anti-virus signatures from leading anti-virus vendor McAfee provide decisive protection from known viruses. Infected emails are detected and stopped. Zombie detection monitors outbound email traffic to determine whether internal computers have been infected by malicious code. Through this technology, affected computers are identified and their outbound traffic quarantined. Dell SonicWALL Time Zero Anti-Virus
Dell SonicWALL Time Zero Anti-Virus technology protects customers from the time a virus outbreak occurs until the time a signature update is available. This process occurs through two types of technologies:
Real-time threat information via the Dell SonicWALL Global Response Intelligent Defense (GRID) Network
collects and analyzes information from industry threat lists and also performs rigorous testing and evaluation of millions of emails every day, establishing reputation scores for senders and content and identifying new threats in real-time to deliver the most accurate and up-to-date protection against new spam attacks while also ensuring delivery of good email.
Dell SonicWALL Zombie Detection examines outbound email traffic for spam, phishing and viruses which are an indication that an internal computer is infected with malicious code. Outbound email is monitored to detect irregular spikes in flow and messages being sent from non-existent users. Such activity launches Outbound Safe Mode producing alerts and automatically quarantining suspect mail.
Predictive email and attachment anomaly detection:
• Email and attachment profiling uses statistical and heuristic methods to identify attachments that contain malicious code.
• Deceptive file type detection finds dangerous attachments that are masquerading as innocuous files.
• Virus traffic analysis monitors a company's normal email patterns to identify anomalies that may indicate a virus outbreak.
Anti-virus signature updates
Dell SonicWALL provides additional layers of protection by partnering with leading anti-virus company, McAfee to deliver a comprehensive set of signatures that provide decisive protection against previously identified viruses. With Dell SonicWALL Email Anti-Virus Subscription, Dell SonicWALL provides robust, auto-tested, timely delivery of signature updates from leading vendors.
