Threat Prevention 

Show / Hide this section

SandBlast Threat Extraction for web-downloaded documents

■ Simple to use, easily enabled for an existing Security Gateway, and does not require any changes to your configuration on the network or client side.

■ Extends Threat Extraction, Check Point's File Sanitization capabilities, to web-downloaded documents. Supported file types: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF formats.

■ Threat Extraction prevents zero-day and known attacks by proactively removing active malware, embedded content, and other potentially malicious parts from a file. Promptly delivers sanitized content to users, maintaining business flow.

■ Allows access to the original file, if it is determined to be safe.

Endpoint Security Threat Extraction for web-downloaded documents

■ Endpoint and Network compatibility includes a new mechanism that inspects files just once, either by the Security Gateway or the Endpoint client.

Advanced Threat Prevention

■ Advanced forensics details for Threat Prevention logs.

■ Ability to import Cyber Intelligence Feeds to the Security Gateway using custom CSV and Structured Threat Information Expression (STIX).

■ Stability and performance improvements for SandBlast Threat Prevention components.

■ Consolidated Threat Prevention dashboard provides full threat visibility across networks, mobile devices, and endpoints.

Enhanced visibility to "Malware DNA" analysis

Improved understanding for security personnel of how malware analysis is performed and the reasons a file is flagged as malicious. The Threat Detail report now includes the Malware DNA – a deeper exploration into any features that are similar to those in known malware families. The enhanced analysis of similarities includes:

■ Behavior

■ Code structure

■ File similarities

■ Patterns of connection attempts to malicious websites and C&C servers.

Complete face-lift for the Threat Emulation Findings Summary Report

■ Redesigned Threat Emulation findings report for a more modern look.

■ The report also includes a dynamic map view of malware family appearances around the globe over time.

■ For more details, as well as information about availability, refer to sk120357.

Threat Prevention APIs enhancements

■ Added ability to send files via APIs to be scanned by Anti-Virus on local Check Point appliances. This capability is supported for both Security Gateways and dedicated Threat Emulation appliances.

■ For more information, refer to the Threat Prevention API Reference Guide.

New and Improved Machine-Learning Engines for Threat Emulation

■ Added new machine-learning engines focused on malware detection inside document files raising the catch rate to optimum.

Enhanced Control of Threat Emulation and MTA actions behavior in case of a failure

■ Added ability for administrators to granularly configure Threat Emulation policy for different behaviors for specific errors - the administrator can decide whether to allow a file transfer based on the error type.

■ When administrators configure the MTA gateway to block emails in case a scan fails (fail-block), they can now also granularly configure MTA to deliver emails to the users for specific failure types.

■ For more details and configuration instructions, refer to sk132492 and sk145552.

Enhanced Anti-Virus support

■ Anti-Virus protections are now applied by default on files received through the MTA gateway. These protections include signatures, hashes and link reputation checks for attachments, link reputation checks for the email body, and granular enforcement based on the file type.

Enhanced Import of additional IOCs

Security Gateways configured as MTA can now be enriched with custom Anti-Virus IOCs from external sources.

■ IOCs can be manually imported via the User Interface.

■ Links to external feeds for automatic ongoing IOC importing can be added via a configuration change.

■ For more information and setup instructions, refer to sk92264 and sk132193.

Enhanced management of the MTA

■ Failure to inspect the attachments or links inside an email is now immediately treated as a failure. Previously, this was treated by adding the email to the MTA queue and retrying the action. As the majority of inspection retries fail as well, this change reduces the size of the queue and improves MTA performance.

Security Gateway

SSL Inspection

Server Name Indications (SNI)

■ Improved TLS implementation for TLS Inspection and categorization

■ Next Generation Bypass - TLS inspection based on Verified Subject Name

TLS 1.2 support for additional cipher suites

■ P-521 Elliptic Curve

■ Full ECDSA support

■ Improved fail open/close mechanism

■ Improved logging for validations

■ For the complete list of supported cipher suites, refer to sk104562
