How Does Enterprise Threat Protector Work?
Enterprise Threat Protector is a secure web gateway that uses multiple layers of protection — DNS, URL, and inline and offline payload analysis — to deliver optimal security and reduced complexity, without impacting performance. All of this protection can be delivered by simply directing web traffic to Enterprise Threat Protector using a lightweight client or by forwarding web traffic from another web proxy via proxy chaining.
All requested domains and URLs are checked against Akamai’s real-time domain risk-scoring threat intelligence. Malicious domains and HTTP/S URLs are blocked. The HTTP and HTTPS payloads are then scanned either inline or offline using multiple advanced malware-detection engines, including an offline cloud sandbox.
