Traps replaces legacy antivirus and secures endpoints with a multi-method prevention approach that blocks malware and exploits, both known and unknown, before they compromise endpoints such as laptops, desktops and servers.
Traps prevents malicious executables rapidly and accurately with a unique, multi-method approach to prevention that maximizes coverage against malware while reducing the attack surface and increasing the accuracy of malware detection. This approach combines several prevention methods to instantly block known and unknown malware from infecting a system.
Traps takes a unique approach to preventing exploits. Instead of focusing on the millions of individual attacks or their underlying software vulnerabilities, it focuses on the small set of techniques all exploit-based attacks use, which rarely change. Traps blocks these techniques, thereby preventing exploitation attempts before they can compromise endpoints.
Preemptively block known and unknown malware, exploits and zero-day threats with the unique multi-method prevention approach of Traps™ advanced endpoint protection.Automate Prevention
Automatically reprogram your endpoints to block known and unknown threats – without human intervention – using threat intelligence gained from our global community of customers and partners.Protect and Enable Users
Empower users to use web-, mobile- and cloud-based applications without fearing cyberthreats. Protect users from inadvertently compromising their systems without burdensome virus scans.
As an integral component of the Palo Alto Networks® Next-Generation Security Platform, Traps continuously exchanges threat intelligence with the WildFire™ threat analysis service, as does each component of the platform deployed among the global community of Palo Alto Networks customers.
WildFire is the world’s largest distributed sensor system focused on identifying and preventing unknown threats, with more than 15,500 enterprise, government and service provider customers contributing to the collective immunity of all other users. Traps customers receive access to this intelligence and WildFire’s complete set of malware analysis capabilities. Traps uses this intelligence to automatically reprogram itself to prevent malware on the endpoint, no matter where it is discovered first.
The automatic conversion of threat intelligence into prevention all but eliminates the opportunity for an attacker to use unknown and advanced malware to infect a system. An attacker can use a given piece of malware at most once, anywhere, and only has seconds to carry out an attack before WildFire renders it entirely ineffective.
