Cato SASE Cloud Becomes First SASE Platform with Network-based Ransomware Protection
Cato Networks, provider of the world’s first SASE platform, introduced network-based ransomware protection for the Cato SASE Cloud. Using heuristic algorithms and deep network insight, Cato detects and prevents the spread of ransomware across the enterprise without having to deploy endpoint agents. Infected machines are identified and immediately isolated for remediation.
“Ransomware protection has become job one for every CISO and CIO, but too often enterprise defense strategies remain vulnerable whether by threat actors bypassing endpoint defenses or by manipulating insiders to spread ransomware,” says Etay Maor, senior director of security strategy at Cato Networks. “By identifying ransomware by its underlying network characteristics, security teams can protect the enterprise regardless of the threat vector.”
