Next-Generation Web Reputation Defence
WatchGuard Web Reputation Defence uses a powerful, cloud-based web reputation service that aggregates data from various feeds, including industry-leading antivirus engines, to provide real-time protection against web threats. Traffic to web URL’s with a bad reputation are blocked immediately which allows your Firebox to do more important tasks. Tests show antivirus processing is reduced by up to 50%.
Advanced Botnet Detection
Infected network computers (botnets) are used by cyber criminals to attack specific targets. Computers become botnets when users fall victim to a clever phishing email or a drive-by-download. WatchGuard Reputation Defence is integrated with Botnet Detection so that you can gain real-time visibility into infected clients and take fast action.
One interface allows you to manage Reputation Enabled Defence alongside all other WatchGuard Security Services Subscriptions. The interface is accessible on a user-friendly centralised console or within a web UI giving you flexibility. You can easily block known bad URL’s, enable known safe URL’s to be bypassed to improve performance, and enable automatic feedback from WatchGuard’s Threat Intelligence system to continuously improve and update the service.
WatchGuard Dimension enables you to quickly see the total number of scanned URL’s and how many were identified as potential threats. You can also see how many individual connections there were, the top clients and destinations, the top blocked botnet sites, and the protocols used.
How Reputation Enabled Defence works
WatchGuard Reputation Enabled Defence works by reviewing the destinations of outbound connections, and identifies and scores threats based on intelligence feeds. Known threats are blocked and safe destinations allowed. Safe destinations can bypass Gateway Antivirus which increases network performance.
