Palo Alto Networks Unveils AutoFocus Cyber Threat Intelligence Service

Delivers Actionable Intelligence to Help Customers Take Quick, Definitive and Preventive Action against Targeted Cyber Threats

Santa Clara, Calif., March 31, 2015 – Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the leader in enterprise security, today announced Palo Alto Networks AutoFocus cyber threat intelligence service, a new offering that provides prioritized, actionable intelligence designed to give customers a clear advantage in the battle against cyber threats.

Security practitioners receive an overwhelming volume of security data and alerts daily from a variety of tools, vendor feeds and devices deployed across their organization. This vast pool of information with little to no context or actionable next steps makes it difficult to identify the unique, targeted attacks facing their organization, often resulting in missed opportunities to prevent the attack before damage can be done.

With the AutoFocus service, security practitioners gain instant access to actionable intelligence derived from billions of file analysis artifacts based on the files collected from of over 5,000 global enterprises, service providers, and government organization routinely targeted by advanced, targeted attacks. By delivering context, such as the origin and uniqueness of a particular threat, or relevance to an organization’s industry, the AutoFocus cyber threat intelligence service is able to:

· Expose the latest threat tactics, techniques, and procedures used by attackers;

· Attribute attacks to specific adversaries;

· Identify how specific threats fit into a larger campaign; and

· Distinguish between commodity malware versus highly customized or targeted malware.

These advanced capabilities enable customers to quickly prioritize highly targeted attacks, apply appropriate resources to address them, and take immediate action to protect critical assets.

Quote

· “The Palo Alto Networks AutoFocus threat intelligence service enables security teams to significantly close the gap on the time it takes to identify and prevent advanced, targeted cyber attacks. By putting cyber threats in a context that speaks specifically to their network and industry, using the largest data set aggregated across customers and industries, we are helping customers around the world take a more strategic approach to securing their organizations.”

– Lee Klarich, senior vice president of Product Management, Palo Alto Networks

Key features of the AutoFocus threat intelligence service include:

· Priority alerts – Prioritized alerts of targeted, advanced attacks based on statistical analysis, human intelligence from the Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 threat research team, and tagged indicators from a customer’s own network, as well as a global community of cyber security experts also using the AutoFocus service.

· Attack context – a web-based dashboard provides the tools to quickly investigate the context of attacks, adversaries, and campaigns, including attacks targeting their specific industry.

· High fidelity threat intelligence – AutoFocus incorporates billions of file analysis artifacts sourced from over 5,000 global enterprises, service providers, and government organizations routinely targeted by advanced, targeted attacks.

Palo Alto Networks AutoFocus threat intelligence service will be available in April to a limited set of existing Palo Alto Networks customers through a Community Access program.

Palo Alto Networks Enhances Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection Offering

Santa Clara, Calif., March 31, 2015 – Palo Alto Networks® (NYSE: PANW), the leader in enterprise security, today announced enhancements that further strengthen the cyber threat prevention capabilities of the Palo Alto Networks Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection offering.

Unlike other endpoint security solutions, Traps takes a unique prevention-oriented approach to addressing advanced attacks on endpoints by identifying and blocking the techniques used by attackers as they attempt to exploit a vulnerability, or deliver malware directly to an endpoint. This approach enables Traps to stop even unknown malware and zero-day exploits from compromising an endpoint, and eliminates the need to rely solely on signatures and security patches for protection.

QUOTE

  • “Cyberattackers are constantly developing new ways to compromise endpoints in an effort to gain unauthorized access to enterprise networks. The latest upgrades to our Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection solution continues to make it harder and harder for attackers to be successful.”

– Lee Klarich, senior vice president of Product Management, Palo Alto Networks

The latest release of Traps, version 3.2, is now available to customers on the Palo Alto Networks Support Portal and includes the following updates:

  • New exploit prevention modules – Traps 3.2 includes three new exploit prevention modules, plus enhancements to existing modules that allow Traps to stay steps ahead of attackers. Traps’ focus on blocking the techniques attackers use to exploit a vulnerability, versus trying to protect against the vulnerability itself, has proven to be the most effect tool at preventing zero-day exploits. With this release, Traps extends its protections against advanced evasion techniques, including prevention for an important and emerging technique utilizing the return path from the Kernel.
  • Enhanced Prevention of Unknown Malware Prevention—Building upon the initial WildFire integration capabilities, Traps now allows an automatic upload of executable files to the Palo Alto Networks WildFire cloud for further analysis of potentially new, unknown threats. In addition, the Traps Advanced Execution Control now provides more granular protection at the local level for organizations requiring greater control over which executables can run on their networks. More granular execution restrictions allow organizations to reduce the attack surface by specifying execution rules based on folder locations, device restrictions, child processes, and unsigned executables. And finally, through the addition of a new malware prevention module, Traps can protect against malware techniques often referred to as “process hollowing” or “process replacement” where the attacker creates processes in a suspended state, in order to inject and run their malicious code before the application process starts.
  • Enhanced Scalability — Significant focus on scalability has resulted in each Endpoint Security Manager (ESM) now supporting up to 50,000 endpoints per server, plus connectivity enhancements which allow the endpoints to find the best ESM to reach. Additionally, 30+ new features focus on workflow improvements, automation, reporting, and more.
