Key Security Features

Classifies all applications, on all ports, all the time

  • Identifies the application, regardless of port, SSL/SSH encryption, or evasive technique employed.
  • Uses the application, not the port, as the basis for all your safe enablement policy decisions: allow, deny, schedule, inspect, and apply traffic-shaping.
  • Categorizes unidentified applications for policy control, threat forensics, or App-ID™ technology development.

Enforces security policies for any user, at any location

  • Deploys consistent policies to local and remote users running on Windows®, macOS®, Linux, Android®, or Apple iOS platforms.
  • Enables agentless integration with Microsoft Active Directory® and Terminal Services, LDAP, Novell eDirectory™, and Citrix.
  • Easily integrates your firewall policies with 802.1X wireless, proxies, NAC solutions, and any other source of user identity information.

Prevent known and unknown threats

  • Blocks a range of known threats—including exploits, malware, and spyware—across all ports, regardless of common evasion tactics employed.
  • Limits the unauthorized transfer of files and sensitive data, and safely enables non-work-related web surfing.
  • Identifies unknown malware, analyzes it based on hundreds of malicious behaviors, and then automatically creates and delivers protection.
