Better Solution to a Growing Problem

Your firewall is getting crushed by the sheer volume of threats that hit it every day. There are now over 10 million known IP threats worldwide at any given time, and that number is growing. At most, firewalls can only handle 300K of these threats at a time. This mismatch results in increased risk that threats are getting through the firewall and the network is slowing down.

The PoliWall solution is frictionless— virtually NO network slowdown— and can process over 100 million IP and 10 million domain threats at line speeds ahead of your firewall. With policy-driven automation, it clears huge swaths of the threat landscape, often eliminating up to 90% of the attack space and resultant risk. Processing both inbound and outbound traffic, the PoliWall uses easy-to-configure outbound policies to prevent damaging data losses. PoliWall is a new type of fortification that’s easy to integrate with your existing network security infrastructure. It delivers the processing power and intelligence you need to fight the onslaught of attacks and protect your vital data, while maintaining optimal network performance.

Save Time. Manage Risk.

Most security systems today are complicated to set up, difficult to deploy, and time-consuming to manage. PoliWall is different – it’s a plug-and-play solution. Requiring no network configuration changes, it can be installed and up and running in minutes.

Clean and intuitive UI elements give users simple ways to make selections or take actions – like country blocking. PoliWall also enables changes to be made once and automatically applied enterprise-wide. By streamlining the change process, PoliWall lets your organization be more ProACTive in handling evolving threats. Eliminating manual, change-related tasks saves your team’s time and frees them up to focus on other security initiatives.

PoliWall also helps you to manage risks more efficiently with automated aggregation and updating of threat intelligence and blacklist feeds. It’s easy to integrate threat feeds from many sources, your own devices/SIEMS, including proprietary, subscription, and open source threat intelligence streams, and those licensed from Bandura’s partners.

Easy to Install and Use

PoliWall is plug-and-play. With no network configuration changes required, it can be up and running in minutes. Intuitive UI elements streamline cyber risk management, and make it easy to be ProACTive in defending against evolving cyber threats.

Stop a Country with a Click®

Block traffic coming from or going to IP ranges for specific countries by simply clicking on a map. Country IP ranges are auto-updated. Easily grant exceptions as granular as a single IP address.

Visualize, Know and Report

PoliWall ships with dashboards that let you easily see and assess inbound and outbound traffic. It also integrates with any and all popular SIEM systems for robust, real-time reporting.

Block Known and Unknown Threats

PoliWall incorporates threat intelligence from top global providers to offer the most comprehensive and advanced IP threat data available. In addition to built-in data feeds, customers can easily integrate additional feeds from any source, including your proprietary resources, open source feeds, and data streams licensed from Bandura’s partners.

Audit Headache Relief

Companies in regulated industries, such as financial services, healthcare, and energy, must maintain and document their compliance with various government regulations. PoliWall ends compliance headaches with its graphical interfaces and granular log files. With Intuitive views of the relevant data and streamlined reporting, PoliWall makes it easy for you to check the compliance box with confidence.

Mountains of Data in Near Real-Time

Threat intelligence must be culled through to be valuable. But with so much of it being generated today, many teams can’t process it properly, so the data is simply ignored. PoliWall ends threat information overload. With its automated threat aggregation capabilities, it can take in multiple feeds from varied sources, and process them in near-real time to produce a single stream of prioritized threat intelligence.

Innovative Technology

With PoliWall, you reduce your attack surface with near‐zero network latency. Using its policy-driven automation, you set your exceptions, determine an IP’s and domain real‐time threat risk, and stop cyber attacks and outbound data leaks automatically. PoliWall blocks threats as they emerge, and re‐allows in near real-time as threats recede. Bandura has over 50 patents issued or pending. PoliWall’s core technologies help administrators balance automation with the need for granular control- using learning to enrich the threat intelligence data against the activity in their own network.

HIPPIE Engine

Bandura’s High-speed Internet Protocol Packet Inspection Engine (HIPPIE®) blocks country-of-origin at line speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second. This eliminates the need to maintain country-based ACLs, significantly reducing the burden on system administrators, firewalls, and routers in the network.

DCELs Engine

PoliWall's high-speed Dynamically‐Compiled Exception Lists (DCELs) engine can recognize and block over 50 million unique malicious IP addresses in 32 threat categories with virtually no additional network latency, which allows you to integrate very large IP Reputation Threat lists blocking large groups of IP's.

The Bandura® Advantage

Easy

We invented country blocking by literally putting it on the map! Then we gave you the one-screen ability to add exceptions down to a single IP address—inbound and outbound.

Open

PoliWall allows you use as many lists as you want, and using STIX and TAXII, we automate block lists provided by Homeland Security, the FBI, the ISACs and others. We made our platform open as there are many niche threat intelligence products out there and our open API and SDK allow you to use what you already have.

Secure

The platform is plug and play ahead of the firewall and can reduce the attack space by up to 90%. Our engineers are security mission focused, give back, and are deep security professionals who create the secure code that matters.
