WatchGuard Now Available: TDR 5.1 with APT Blocker Built-in
We’re thrilled to announce the general availability of Threat Detection and Response (TDR) 5.1, which includes some great new features that enhance both detection and response to threats as well as the overall user experience when testing new features. This release further increases the value of both TDR and the Total Security Suite, enabling users to more broadly identify threats across their network and respond to them in real-time.
This release of TDR includes three new key features:
- APT Blocker
With this release TDR can now directly triage suspicious files discovered by a Host Sensor by sending them to APT Blocker for further analysis. The submitted files undergo deep analysis for APT activity in a sandbox environment at a Lastline cloud-based data center. If evidence of malware activity is discovered, TDR can adjust the original suspicious threat score assigned to the file to prevent future infection. With sandbox policy enabled, this process and subsequent response can be automated, making threat triage incredibly easy and effortless.
The TDR user interface is now available in French, Japanese, and Spanish. TDR automatically displays the localized user interface if your browser language is set to one of these languages.
