Dual-Detection Security Defense Approach

Multiple detection techniques including Intelligent Signatures, Advanced Emulation, and Hueristics detect and analyze email-based threats and correlate them with those found in web traffic and suspicious files.

Multiple microscanner tools in the malware detection engine break down a large file into the smallest parts to detect threats hidden in packed files like scripts inside a PDF, macros in an office document, or a file within a zip file.
