Data Sheet

ET Pro Ruleset

Even the most sophisticated attack prevention systems can’t stop everything. When attackers get through, you need to know right away, so you can limit the harm. The only way you can know is to deploy technology that detects when attackers have bypassed these systems. Proofpoint ET Pro Ruleset is a timely and accurate rule set for detecting and blocking advanced threats. ET Pro Ruleset is updated daily. It covers malware delivery, command and control, attack spread, in-the-wild exploits and vulnerabilities, and credential phishing. It also detects and blocks distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS), protocol and application anomalies, exploit kits, and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) attacks.
