Capture Labs collects and analyzes information from industry threat lists, performs rigorous testing and evaluation of millions of emails every day, and establishes reputation scores for senders and content, identifying new threats as they occur.

Multi-AV Scanning

Ensure your anti-spyware and anti-virus is up to date, with SonicWall cloud anti-virus and premium anti-virus signatures from industry partners including McAfee and Cyren. SonicWall uses predictive and responsive technologies to protect organizations from virus infections before signature updates are available.
