Why use Palo Alto Traps?

Key differentiators & advantages of Palo Alto Traps

  • Traps, Advanced Endpoint Protection.
    Compromise isn’t inevitable, or at least it shouldn’t be. Traditional endpoint protection simply cannot keep up with the rapidly evolving threat landscape, leaving organizations vulnerable to advanced attacks.

  • Extend Zero Trust To Your Endpoint.
    "Zero Trust" should be extended beyond the network. With exploit kits readily accessible, even your ‘good’ applications can go ‘bad’. No application or attached device should be trusted, known or unknown. So instead of monitoring for patterns or malicious behaviors, or whitelisting applications, an advanced endpoint protection should persistently enforce the zero trust model on your endpoint.

  • Patch Management. Worry No More.
    Patch management alone does not provide adequate protection because vulnerabilities exist long before patches are released and there is inevitable delay in installing newly released patches. Furthermore, legacy software that is no longer supported by the vendor can never be patched. With end of life of Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 drawing near, those still running the legacy software will remain publicly vulnerable.

  • Do More, With Less.
    Traps requires no definition updates or hardware, protects unpatched systems, is compatible with all physical or virtual Windows platforms including terminals, VDI, VMs and embedded systems, protects all applications including proprietary and 3rd party applications, and most importantly, it doesn’t need prior knowledge of an attack in order to prevent it.
