File Sandbox

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

File Sandboxing helps you submit a suspicious file for analysis to determine if the file is malicious or safe. The major advantage of the File Sandbox is that it can reliably detect unknown threats.
This feature is accessible for the Admin and Super Admin only.
If you suspect a file to be malicious in your environment, you can submit that file to the sandbox for detonation.
Sandbox detonation – Sandbox security testing detects malware by running suspicious code in a safe and isolated environment and monitoring the behavior and outputs of the code. This is known as “detonation”.
