Check Point stops bot attacks

Check Point announced a new Anti-Bot Software Blade that protects against bots and APTs (Advance Persistent Threats). Check Point helps customers discover bots and prevent damages by blocking communication between infected hosts and remote operators.

The new solution will be integrated into every gateway to provide businesses with multi-layered bot prevention against malware threats, with high traffic performance of over 40 Gbps – ensuring all channels of business communication remain secure.

Check Point’s new Anti-Bot Software Blade is designed to stop bots in their tracks by leveraging technology that helps businesses discover, remediate and prevent future threats. The solution features Check Point’s Multi-tier ThreatSpect, a detection engine that analyzes traffic on every gateway, identifies millions of outbreak types and discovers bots by correlating multiple risk factors – such as botnet patterns, remote operator hide-outs and attack behaviors.

When a bot is identified, customers can quickly analyze their level of risk through intuitive dashboards that highlight bots and their business implications – such as data loss or an increase in fraudulent spam distribution.

Check Point’s Anti-Bot solution provides administrators with the information they need to investigate infections with extensive forensic capabilities – helping security teams enforce multi-layered protection and accelerate remediation time.

In addition to Check Point’s advanced discovery technology, the Anti-Bot Software Blade revolutionizes bot prevention by providing customers with multi-layered protection on every gateway by integrating with existing security protections, such as Intrusion Prevention, Antivirus & Anti-Malware and URL Filtering. For the first time in the industry, businesses benefit from a unified bot prevention solution, while delivering high traffic performance of up to 40 Gbps.

Key Features and benefits of the Anti-Bot Software Blade:

Innovative and multi-tier bot discovery – Check Point’s multi-tier ThreatSpect engine analyzes network traffic through the gateway for inline prevention, correlating multiple risk factors to discover bots. Customers benefit from instant bot intelligence with Check Point’s ThreatCloud, a repository that pushes automatic threat updates to the Anti-Bot Software Blade, making it easy for businesses to enforce protection against the latest generation of threats.

Preemptive protection – Helps businesses prevent bot damages by blocking communication between the infected machine and the command and control (C&C) servers before a cybercriminal can take control of the network.

Forensics and reporting – Enables customers to analyze risk through malware reports and dashboards providing infection summaries. Customers have the ability to drill-down into specific bot incidents, investigating infections with forensic capabilities and assess potential damages.

Integrated prevention – The Anti-Bot Software Blade is designed to easily integrate with customers’ existing security protections, including: Intrusion Prevention that protects against emerging vulnerabilities; Antivirus & Anti-Malware that prevents file transfers of malicious viruses and URL Filtering that blocks access to malicious sites. With an integrated, multi-layer solution, Check Point helps customers consolidate security, while protecting their business against bots across all layers of the network.

Central management – Central policy management through the Software Blade Architectureâ„? simplifies management complexity with a holistic view of the network.
