Malware Defense Powered by Artificial Intelligence
IntelligentAV leverages a machine-learning engine to better defend against continuously evolving zero day malware. While signature-based AV solutions are only able to detect known threats, IntelligentAV makes it possible to predict threats months before they are released, providing powerful predictive protection previously unavailable to small and midsize businesses.
- Predictive protection against evolving malware.
- Innovative machine-learning engine with a demonstrated Predictive Advantage of more than two years.
- No reliance on signatures or Cloud connectivity.
- Another industry-leading layer of malware detection on the Firebox.
- Automated classification of files as malicious or safe, with results delivered in fractions of a second.
- Stops malware at the very point where your network touches the Internet.
IntelligentAV features a powerful machine-learning engine that provides protection against evolving malware, with industry tests demonstrating a Predictive Advantage of more than two years. IntelligentAV is trained to identify threats by breaking down millions of files into their fundamental building blocks, and then examine the millions of characteristics in each file for indicators of malicious intent. The net result is a series of statistical algorithms that can classify any file against the statistical fingerprint of malicious/benign files to determine whether a file is safe to run before it is executed. This process is automated to deliver results within fractions of seconds, and is done in real time.
Block Threats Without Relying on Signatures
Modern malware mutates at an incredible rate and can change hour by hour, rendering human-produced signature-based detection obsolete. IntelligentAV defeats malware attempting to enter your network by using tested mathematical models that require no Cloud connectivity, signatures, or behavioral analysis, keeping you safe even in environments where access to regular signature database updates is difficult.
Most Comprehensive Layered Malware Detection in the Industry
As part of the WatchGuard Total Security Suite, IntelligentAV is available on latest generation M Series appliances, as well as Firebox Cloud and FireboxV, and joins ThreatSync, Gateway AntiVirus, and APT Blocker to provide the most comprehensive layered malware detection in the industry.
How It Works
IntelligentAV is trained to identify threats by breaking down millions of files into their fundamental building blocks, and then examines millions of characteristics of each file including, file size, signing attributes, string data, icons, imports, permissions in a data section, packers, compiler type and language, headers, directories, and the presence or absence of features in combination to identify indicators of malicious intent. If malware is identified, the file is blocked before it can execute.
