Advanced Threat Prevention Subscription
Palo Alto Networks Advanced Threat Prevention subscription—a new flagship intrusion prevention service—detects and prevents the latest advanced threats from infiltrating your network by leveraging deep learning models trained on high fidelity threat intelligence gathered by Palo Alto Networks. This inline cloud-based threat detection and prevention engine defends your network from evasive and unknown command-and-control (C2) threats by inspecting all network traffic.
Advanced Threat Prevention includes all of the existing capabilities found in Threat Prevention, including a proven signature-based threat prevention solution to defend against known exploits, command-and-control, and commodity malware, and expands on that foundation with an extensible cloud architecture, providing scalable threat detection mechanisms to keep your network protections up to date without sapping firewall resources or relying on regular update packages.
Domain Fronting Detection
Firewalls now have a unique threat ID signature to identify and block domain fronting, also known as SNI spoofing, through your Anti-Spyware security profile as a spyware signature. This allows you to protect your network from malicious attackers using a crafted packet to indicate a fake website in the SNI while surreptitiously connecting to a different website via the HTTP Host Header — a possible vector for the distribution of malware.
