With complex hybrid-cloud environments, new attack routes, and zero-day malware that evades traditional defenses, the need for strong Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) security solutions has become paramount. 

Forcepoint’s Advanced Malware Detection & Protection (AMDP), powered by Recorded Future, is a security sandbox solution that strengthens organizations’ security posture by establishing an additional layer of defense against advanced threats. Built from the ground up with modern infrastructure, AMDP is engineered to detect the most elusive malware that evades other sandbox solutions and traditional AVs. 

Starting today, organizations operating in an on-premises environment can fully leverage AMDP’s capabilities, as we now support both on-premises and cloud deployment options. This expansion empowers organizations with the flexibility to choose the deployment method that aligns with their infrastructure and security requirements whether on-premises, cloud, or hybrid model. Unlike numerous on-premises sandbox solutions that often lack feature parity compared to their cloud counterparts, AMDP provides consistent and powerful capabilities regardless of deployment option. 

One of AMDP’s noticeable features is its support for Linux and Android operating systems, pivotal in safeguarding critical backend servers, infrastructure, and IoT devices. This support strengthens defenses against sophisticated attacks targeting these operating systems. AMDP’s platform agnostic approach ensures that threats are efficiently analyzed across a diverse array of file types including office documents, executables, archives, and batch files across the most popular OSs, including Windows 7 and 10, Linux, Android and MacOS (cloud only). The broad range of OS support enhances AMDP’s detection capabilities, enabling to identify and neutralize threats across platforms.  

AMDP’s integration with Forcepoint’s FlexEdge Secure SD-WAN and Secure Web Gateway (SWG) solutions boosts organizations’ security posture. The seamless integration with these solutions streamlines deployment, configuration, and management processes, offering organizations a unified security environment. Moreover, Forcepoint's collective Threat Intelligence ensures that information about newly detected malware is quickly shared across its product portfolio, this approach equips security professionals with real time insights, enabling them to strengthen defenses against both existing and future threats. AMDP goes beyond conventional static analysis-based solutions, effectively detecting the most evasive advanced malware and zero-day threats making it a key component of a comprehensive security strategy. 

AMDP's capabilities extend beyond conventional static analysis-based solutions, detecting the most evasive advanced malware and zero-day threats. Its ability to perform configuration extraction of over 150 malware families in classified 350 malware families underscores the efficacy in combating sophisticated cyber threats.
