The Advanced Malware Sandbox (AMS) is an important component of a network security architecture that delivers the ability to detect and block advanced threats. AMS solutions utilize virtualized computing environments to identify malicious behaviors and other indicators of malware. This model is unique and yields high fidelity threat information with minimal false positives. While AMS capabilities are in high demand, vendors face growing competition from emerging cyber security technologies, as well as pressure to adopt new models for delivering this technology to customers.
