Barracuda's Advanced Threat Detection (ATD) uses improved sandbox technology powered by full-system emulation to catch not only persistent threats and zero-day exploits, but also advanced malware designed to evade detection. Files are forwarded to a cloud-based sandbox environment, where they are executed and analyzed to identify suspicious and malicious behavior. Barracuda ensures flexible and simple deployment with your existing network infrastructure - no additional hardware is required since resource intensive sandboxing is offloaded to the cloud. The cloud database is continuously updated by all Barracuda NextGen Firewall F's with enabled ATD and, thereby, speed up the processing of already known files. The administrator has full policy control over how different files and archives are emulated and delivered to the client. Based on identified malware activity, infected users can be automatically quarantined preventing the malware from spreading within the network. Customizable, on-demand analysis reports for any emulated file provide full insight and details on malicious activities, file behavior, system-registry entries, evasion and obfuscation techniques. This also enables network activities such as establishing encrypted connections to Botnet Command and Control Centers for increased security posture to evade scaled Botnet attacks.
