Why Do You Need Sandboxing for Protection?
Organizations breached by Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are all over the news and sandboxing is the latest hot thing being touted to protect you from APTs. Why? Why sandboxing? What does a sandbox solution give you that you don’t already get from your existing layers of security?
A Sandbox gives you a chance to see into the future, into the unknown. We don’t live in a black and white world, where everything is known to be good or bad. The code that runs over your network spans a continuum from known good code to known bad or that includes malicious code. A lot is simply unknown. You are likely already running a number of security technologies to help protect your organization from malicious code and you are probably running technologies that help you identify good code. However, like most organizations, you are still at risk from the unknown. And that unknown gap in the code continuum is a significant one.
WHY DO YOU NEED SANDBOXING FOR PROTECTION? Sandboxing finally gives you a method to close the gap, to identify previously unknown attacks that traditional security technologies may not detect.
Sandboxing fit into the many layers of security in an organization.
WHY DO YOU NEED SANDBOXING FOR PROTECTION? How do I choose the best sandbox for me? You want a sandbox that effectively detects breaches and can detect them quickly. Make sure you choose a sandbox solution that’s been independently tested and rated, don’t just rely on vendor claims for effectiveness and performance. You also want your sandbox solution to work cooperatively with the rest of your network security technologies. Sandboxing doesn’t replace your in place antispam, IPS, antivirus, web filtering, IP reputation and application controls within next generation firewalls, secure email gateways and endpoint protection platforms. Your sandbox should work cooperatively with these technologies to provide an additional layer of protection that can be managed as part of a coordinated defense. Finally, sandboxing is resource intensive and solutions from different vendors vary widely in cost. Make sure your sandbox solution delivers the security you need at a good value.
