Block Malware Attacks at your Gateway

Threats are becoming ever more ingenious so keeping your network free of malware is a significant challenge. WatchGuard Gateway AntiVirus (GatewayAV) uses advanced, multi-layered threat detection engines to identify and block malware threats at your network gateway which ensures that your network and devices remain free of malware. WatchGuard GatewayAV provides you with real-time protection against known worms and viruses, rogueware, spyware, and trojan by using high-performance and industry-leading scanning of traffic on all major protocols.

Key Features

  • GatewayAV Scans all major protocols
  • Signature-based and behavioural-based scans are run
  • GatewayAV continuously updates the signature database to include latest threats
  • GatewayAV works with Best-in-class Bitdefender scanning engine
  • GatewayAV has machine-learning models
  • GatewayAV is optimised for industry-leading performance

Safeguard Your Network

WatchGuard GatewayAV works in tandem with the application layer content inspection of Fireboxes to provide you with network-wide protection for all users against known malware. All major protocols are scanned including POP3, HTTP, HTPPS, SMTP, FTP, CTP and UDP. Emails are scanned at the gateway to ensure known threats are stopped before reaching your servers. The downloading and execution of malicious code is prevented.

Highly Effective Scanning

WatchGuard GatewayAV incorporates the award-winning Bitdefender scanning engine and uses signature techniques, which are constantly updated, and dynamic heuristic analysis with code emulation to catch malicious code and polymorphic viruses that signatures don’t catch. There is wide support for different compression types allowing for compressed and encoded files to be decompressed for thorough analysis.

Flexible Management Console

WatchGuard’s intuitive and flexible management console allows you to choose which file types to scan, and what action is taken when malware is detected, including allow, block, quarantine or drop based on type, user and protocol. You are also able to decide what action should be taken when a file cannot be scanned, including ones that are password protected.

Real-time Visibility and Reporting

WatchGuard Cloud Visibility / Dimension allows you see details of the top blocked malware by type, name and number of hits, as well as the source and destination. You have access to instant views with charts and dashboards that detail the total number of files scanned and the number of viruses detected over a set time frame.

Enhanced Detection Through Machine Learning

Machine-learning models help WatchGuard GatewayAV to detect known, unknown and evasive malware threats. Machine-learning algorithms work in tandem to aid accuracy and to reduce false positives.

How Gateway AntiVirus Works

Gateway AntiVirus works by scanning all traffic and files flowing through the WatchGuard Firebox to identify known malware and riskware. If a threat is identified through signature matching the connection is blocked, or the file stripped.
