Organizations send and receive vast amounts of documents and files to and from the Internet on a daily basis, providing cybercriminals an attack surface to implement their malicious activities. Downloaded files over the Internet and email attachments are the most vulnerable entry points to internal organizational resources. Common security protection solutions only track the signature of already known viruses and infected files, and block them when the signature is matched. Therefore, advanced cybercriminals easily bypass them by forming new unknown malware and carrying out zero-day attacks through web and email traffic.
Organizational files need to be automatically inspected with innovative and cutting-edge emulation engines in secure, sandboxed environments before reaching their destination, in order to keep the risk of zero-day infections to a minimum.
