The SecureWorks Advanced Managed Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) service enhances existing Palo Alto NGFW capabilities through the inclusion of our Attacker Database into the platform, using its dynamic blocklist functionality.
By combining this threat intelligence into the firewall device, SecureWorks delivers an additional level of protection to our clients by proactively blocking traffic to known malicious domain names and IP addresses.
The Attacker Database contains a list of domain names and IP addresses used by cyber criminals to conduct malicious activity. Working with Palo Alto Networks, SecureWorks will apply Attacker Database blocklists to clients’ managed Next-Generation Firewall platform using its dynamic blocklist functionality. Using this integration, managed Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall devices can be configured to proactively block traffic to known malicious domain names and IP addresses, with blocklists being automatically updated using the Attacker Database threat intelligence data feed.
The SecureWorks Attacker Database solution, available as a fully-managed service, provides organizations with access to the high fidelity data feed of IP addresses and domain names associated with web-based exploits, malware, command and control servers (computers used by threat actors to deliver commands/and or malware to its compromised computers and mobile devices), and other known malicious IT infrastructure. By applying this threat intelligence to managed Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls, SecureWorks is providing organizations an additional level of protection against malicious threats and attacks.
