Hornetsecurity Advanced Threat Protection
Detect and prevent highly complex and sophisticated attacks - effectively and in real time.
Use Hornetsecurity ATP to protect your business against individually targeted attacks starting from the first malicious email.
Highly innovative forensic analysis engines ensure that the attacks are stopped immediately. At the same time the solution provides detailed information about the attacks on the company.
Protection against ransomware
Ransomware has increased sharply since the beginning of 2016: these are viruses that cripple the computer or an entire network by encrypting the locally stored files. It is only by paying a ransom - hence the name - that users have a chance to access their data again. Locky, Tesla, Petya and
the like are polymorphic viruses that can be very difficult to detect. To do so, Hornetsecurity ATP uses, among other things, a sandbox engine to analyze the behaviour of attachments when being opened and filter out the email in the event of a positive find. Hornetsecurity also “freezes”
suspicious emails in order, once the signatures of the filters have updated after a few minutes, to scan again.
Protection against blended attacks
Blended attacks combine different angles of attack to be successful. The email can, for example, include a document that in turn can hide a link to a download page containing malware. Hornetsecurity ATP combats these types of attacks by means of URL scanning and URL rewriting as well as
sandboxing and freezing.
Protection against targeted attacks
High-ranking employees of companies are often the target of individual attacks, so-called spear phishing, whaling or CEO fraud. The attackers try to obtain passwords or credit card information, or convince the employees to transfer funds to a specific account. These attacks are virtually
undetectable by conventional means. With Hornetsecurity ATP, the internal communication between particular persons in the company is specifically examined for such attacks in order to prevent abuse through identity spoofing.
Protection against digital espionage
According to a survey conducted by the IT industry association Bitkom, more than half of German companies have already been the victim of data theft, sabotage or espionage. The Hornetsecurity spy-out forensics system detects both known and completely new patterns for spying out
information. This system reacts instantly and alerts you before information needing protection leaves the company.
Notification of attacks
The Hornetsecurity real time alerts notify you of acute attacks on your company and allow the rapid initiation of further internal measures and legal procedures. The system of notifications provides detailed analysis results for this purpose. The customer security team can also sensitize
employees to identify additional angles of attack, for example by telephone. If already delivered emails are later identified as potentially harmful, ex post alerting enables the IT security team to undertake an investigation into the accounts or systems affected.
