Re: AutoFocus and WildFire

They both have a completely different function

Simply put: AutoFocus is log aggregation, WildFire is malware analysis

 

AutoFocus allows you an overview of the battlefield and alerts you to incidents through collected data

WildFire receives and analyzes files traversing your and others' firewall and creates signatures to block such files, those signatures are then rolled out to firewalls and endpoints to protect them

 

WildFire also feeds data into AutoFocus

Hello Reaper,

 

Thanks for your message!

 

so basically AutoFocus do not block any threat and only works on identifying the threats?

No, its more like a SIEM (but better ;) ) as it aggregates different information sources and applies analytics to the data
And provides you with statistics and reports
