Fortinet: Addressing Advanced Threats in the SMB
The ATD Solution: Generally an ATD/Sandboxing solution does not replace proper threat prevention technologies - traditional antivirus, web filter, and IPS. But it is a good compliment and here is why:Most malwares today are distributed broadly and are often a part of building a botnet. So a client downloads a file playing host to malware, file dropper, or the like. The first thing a UTM firewall will do is to check its policies to see if the client is allowed to access the server at all. But what if it is not flagged as a malicious site? Then the file is downloaded to the firewall (a proxy mode, transparent to the user) for the next check.
