Businesses that rely on antivirus software alone are no longer protected. What makes today’s threats so dangerous is that they can easily morph into code that will slip by signature-based products looking for a recognizable malware pattern.
Organizations of all sizes have been plagued by sophisticated attacks that evade traditional defenses, resulting in the loss of personal information, millions of dollars, and permanent reputation damage.
Makios protects businesses in El Paso and Las Cruces against advanced malware including cryptowall and cryptolocker, partnering with WatchGuard with a next-generation APT Blocker. APT Blocker is able to leverage sophisticated behavior analysis to determine if a file is malicious. It identifies and submits suspicious files to a cloud-based next-generation sandbox, a virtual environment where code is analyzed, emulated, and executed to determine its threat potential. Its full system emulation – which simulates the physical hardware including CPU and memory – provides the most comprehensive level of protection against malware.
"As far as attackers are concerned, size doesn’t matter: it’s all about the information." — Securelist.com
Zero day attacks are those for which no software patch is available and no signature exists. Signature-based antivirus solutions are still important as a first line of defense, eliminating known threats at the gateway. APT Blocker extends protection from the universe of known malware to the unknown, securing your business from today’s constantly evolving threats.

Combat Evolving Threats
As threats continue to evolve and become more complex, there is not one technology that can provide complete threat protection on its own. That’s why at Makios, we take a layered approach to network security, continually staying ahead of the evolving threat landscape with a suite of powerful security services. Signature-based defenses are still critical as a first line of defense, eliminating known threats at the gateway. However, you still need protection against unknown attacks that make it past the first layers of security. That’s where APT Blocker comes in, providing your next level in advanced malware detection and prevention.

Flexible architecture blocks network threats while optimizing performance
Makios' UTM (unified threat management) platform is designed to allow network traffic to pass through a full suite of security services — from anti-spam protection to Data Loss Prevention — at top performance levels. Leveraging the power of multi-core processing, the platform runs all scanning engines simultaneously for maximum protection and blazing fast throughput. Resources are allocated based on the flow of data and the security services that data requires. For example, if web filtering needs more horsepower, additional processors are automatically applied so web traffic keeps moving and your business stays secure.
