Our next-generation sandbox provides a complete ATP solution with an advanced emulation based purpose-built environment for real-time malware analysis of email attachments. The cloud-based solution provides the ability to run in-depth and sophisticated analysis of an unknown or suspicious file in an isolated environment, thereby monitoring its execution and likely malicious impact that could threaten the integrity of your environment.


Sandboxing technology is becoming increasingly critical for advanced malware detection. MailGate SC Sandbox solution leverage’s extensive threat research experience to understand how malware authors attempt to evade conventional signature-based protection with cleverly crafted malicious code.

With a view to addressing this malware-detection gap, Axway MailGate provides next-generation sandbox, utilizing full-system emulation to provide proactive defense against evasive and targeted threats.

Uncovers the modern cyber threat from its guise

The sandbox is designed to provide IT security, forensics teams and threat analysts with high-resolution visibility into the behavior of the modern malware. Replacing first-generation sandbox techniques with more evolved capabilities like full-system emulation, the solution provides targeted attack protection, visibility and analysis by detecting, blocking and responding to evasive, unknown threats.

This approach delivers more reliable defense and helps identify persistent threats, zero-day exploits and obfuscated attacks like malicious JavaScript code that fly under the radar.
