What is Sandboxing?

Sandboxing is a method in computer security whereby running programs are separated for security reasons. Sandboxing is used to execute untrusted or untested code or programs from unverified parties or web sites.

What does LightCyber have to do with it?

If deployed in blocking mode, sandboxing is an important security add-on, offering significant improvement over signature-based antivirus products. However, current exploits have learned to easily overcome inline sandboxing by delaying activity beyond what sandboxing products can afford before they must let traffic through. This forces sandboxing products to be deployed in detection mode, which creates massive amounts of false-positives. LightCyber understands the context of the network traffic through deep profiling, and as a result delivers only accurately-targeted, actionable alerts.Download a FREE white paper to learn more
