Sandboxing tools are a security mechanism, used to detect novel malicious programs that may be hidden inside a downloadable file, email from an untrusted user, or any other untrusted website. Sandboxing is implemented as a virtual environment to test any suspicious inbound data by analyzing its behavior inside the environment. The data is tested against different types and versions of Operating Systems (OSs), such as Windows and Mac, to fully analyze the data. Any newly detected malware is immediately informed to other deployed security solutions and also updated in the vendor’s threat intelligence database to prevent the threat from widespread. Sandboxing tools are offered as a standalone product or as an integral part of other cybersecurity solutions by the security vendors.
