Advanced threat protection

Advanced threat protection analyzes incoming and outgoing network traffic (for example, DNS requests, HTTP requests, and IP packets) for threats. Using ATP, you can quickly detect compromised clients in your network and raise an alert or drop the traffic from those clients.

  • To turn on advanced threat protection, click the on/off switch.
  • To specify an action when ATP detects a threat, select Log only to log the data packet or Log and drop to log and drop the packet. (By default, logging is enabled for ATP events.)
  • To specify known hosts that you want to be ignored by ATP, click Add new item and select hosts.
  • To add destination IP addresses or domain names that you want to skip from being scanned for threats by ATP, type an address and click the Add button .
CAUTION By excluding sources or destinations you may expose your network to severe risks.
