Cato Endpoint Protection (EPP)

Cato Endpoint Protection (EPP) is the industry’s first SASE-managed EPP solution protecting endpoints against advanced malware, evasive attacks and zero-day threats. Cato EPP adds endpoint protection and detection to Cato’s multi-layer SASE architecture while reducing management overhead, increasing security teams efficiency, and improving the enterprise security posture.

Cato EPP Capabilities

Stop Malware Before File Execution and in Runtime

Cato EPP scans over 300 file types for threats, including archives and packed files. It uses advanced rule-based analysis and machine learning algorithms, to identify known, polymorphic, and zero-day malware based on file characteristics analysis. Cato EPP uses heuristics and process behavioral analysis to detect suspicious and malicious activity in real-time. This capability enables the detection and prevention of fileless malware operating directly in the system memory, evasive exploits and zero-day attacks, and ”living-off-the-land” attacks that leverage legitimate tools for malicious purposes. To further minimize attack surface, Cato can block the use of USB drives with device control.

Flexible Containment Options for Compromised Endpoints

Responding to threats in real time is critical to minimizing the potential damage of a malware outbreak. However, delicate balance is often needed between automated response and user productivity. Cato provides administrators with the flexibility to adjust the containment policies to meet their organization security requirements including threat blocking, file quarantine, or process termination.

Endpoint Protection Convergence into SASE Streamlines Security Management

Cato EPP is fully managed through the Cato Management Application (CMA), seamlessly integrated with all other Cato SASE Cloud Platform capabilities. Administrators gain the advantage of overseeing the protected endpoints from a unified console, where user data, network information, and security policies are consolidated. Cato EPP saves administrators the need to integrate, maintain, and manage a standalone endpoint protection solution. Manual SIEM integration is also eliminated as all EPP events and alerts are now a native part of the Cato SASE Cloud platform.

Instant Protection with Rapid Deployment and No User Impact

Cato EPP is provisioned via the Cato Management Application (CMA) or through the Customer’s selected Mobile Device Management tool (MDM). Administrators can onboard and start protecting thousands of endpoints in a matter of minutes. Once installed, the Cato EPP agent runs in the background and is completely transparent to the end-user. No login is required, and users get instantly protected and alerted when a security event occurs on the endpoint. Ad-hoc malware scanning activities can be initiated by the user or by the administrator directly from the Cato Management Application.

One Data Lake for Network and Endpoint Makes Detection and Response Faster, XDR-ready

Cato EPP events are stored in the same data lake with all other events generated by the various Cato SASE Cloud Platform engines. Cato XDR leverages high-quality endpoint data, alongside network-based sensors, for optimal AI/ML threat detection and investigation. Administrators can easily filter events by user or device seeing a unified list of all endpoint and network security events in one screen, enabling efficient incident investigation and response.

The Strategic Benefits of a True SASE Platform

Architected from the ground up as a true cloud-native SASE platform, all Cato's security capabilities, today and in the future, leverage the global distribution, massive scalability, advanced resiliency, autonomous life cycle management, and consistent management model of the Cato platform.

Consistent Policy
Enforcement 

Cato extends all security capabilities globally to deliver consistent policy enforcement everywhere and to everyone, from the largest datacenters and down to a single user device.

Scalable and Resilient Protection

Cato scales to inspect multi-gig traffic streams with full TLS decryption and across all security capabilities, and can automatically recover from service component failures to ensure continuous security protection.

Autonomous Life Cycle Management

Cato ensures the SASE cloud platform maintains optimal security posture, 99.999% service availability, and low-latency security processing for all users and locations without any customer involvement.

Single Pane of Glass

Cato provides a single pane of glass to consistently manage all security and networking capabilities including configuration, analytics, troubleshooting, and incident detection and response. Unified management model eases new capabilities adoption by IT and the business.

Recognized as a SASE Pioneer and Leader by Industry Analysts

Cato is the category creator of SASE. We didn't invent the name, but SASE is Cato's founding vision. Since 2015 we are continuously evolving and perfecting the only true SASE platform. Cato is fully committed to deliver on the promise of SASE: making secure and optimized access effortlessly available for everyone and everywhere.

“We ran a breach-and-attack simulator on Cato, Infection rates and lateral movement just dropped while detection rates soared. These were key factors in trusting Cato security.”
