WG and Cisco
Verus has been providing firewall expertise since its inception in 2002. From 2003 to 2015, Verus was an Expert Partner with WatchGuard Technologies – one of the leading firewall solution providers in the world. In 2016, Verus became one of just a hand full of Platinum Partners worldwide in the new WatchGuardOne Partner Program.
WatchGuard’s Platinum level is by invitation only, and represents the company’s recognition of those partners who ultimately provide the highest level of network security expertise and consistent experience to WatchGuard’s end user customers.
Verus also has a history of working with other firewall providers, including Cisco and Sophos. While we are committed to the WatchGuard product line, and do it better than others, we also recognize the need to provide what the customer needs, not just what we prefer.
Zero Day Protection From Malware With APT Blocker
Malware is getting more sophisticated by the day and the number of cyber attacks are increasing in an alarming rate. According to a PricewaterhouseCoopers study, cyber attacks were up 48 percent from 2013 to 2014. With government and large companies no longer being the only targets for hackers, protection for small and medium-size business is more important than ever before.
We at Verus understand advanced threats, including APTs (advanced persistent threats), are particularly difficult to detect and extremely dangerous to your network. We’ve partnered with WatchGuard Technologies to make sure your business has the right solution and the best-in-class technology to safeguard employees’ and customers’ sensitive data.
Available for all WatchGuard UTM appliances, APT Blocker uses a full system emulation to get detailed views into the execution of a malware program. After first running through other security services, files are fingerprinted and checked against an existing database – first on the appliance and then in the cloud. If the file has never been seen before, it is analyzed using the system emulator, which monitors the execution of all instructions. It can spot the evasion techniques that other sandboxes miss.
Don’t let malware take over your network. Let Verus safeguard your business and customers.
