Threat Detection and Response

Cyber criminals are mounting attacks with increasing complexity and sophistication, using coordinated means to gain access to your network from any and every connection. Organizations of all sizes need a solution that leverages a holistic approach to security from the network to the endpoint. WatchGuard Threat Detection and Response (TDR) correlates network and endpoint security events with threat intelligence to detect, prioritize and enable immediate action to stop malware attacks.

Threat Correlation and Prioritization

ThreatSync is WatchGuard’s new cloud-based correlation and threat scoring engine, improving security awareness and response across the network to the endpoint. ThreatSync collects event data from the WatchGuard Firebox, WatchGuard Host Sensor and cloud threat intelligence feeds, and correlates this data to generate a comprehensive threat score and rank based on severity.

Enterprise-grade Threat Intelligence

Threat Intelligence was previously only a benefit available to enterprise organizations with big budgets and even bigger security teams. With Threat Detection and Response, WatchGuard consumes and analyzes threat intelligence feeds – delivering the security benefits without passing down the associated complexities or cost.


Visibility into the Endpoint

The lightweight WatchGuard Host Sensor extends visibility and management to the endpoint and continuously sends endpoint events up to ThreatSync for correlation and scoring. The Host Sensor detects events, sends the data to ThreatSync and enables the remediation of threats on the endpoint.

Additional Security Layer to Existing Antivirus Solutions

Threat Detection and Response doesn’t require users or Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) to replace existing AV solutions already deployed. TDR works in tandem with existing AV, bringing an additional, powerful layer of threat detection and event correlation to catch anything that AV might miss.


Prevention against Advanced Malware

The Host Ransomware Prevention feature of Threat Detection and Response, along with the advanced malware protection provided through APT Blocker, enables industry-leading prevention against ransomware attacks. Host Ransomware Prevention blocks the execution of ransomware before any file encryption on the endpoint takes place, mitigating the ransomware attack before any damage is done. <Learn More>
