Forrester Sandbox Technology Executive Summary

Sandboxes virtually replicate operating environments, execute suspicious code, and report observed behaviors. While a sandbox isn't a silver bullet, it can function as an important tool for Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), enabling security pros to block or contain malware.

Forrester Consulting conducted a quantitative survey of enterprise security professionals that had evaluated or implemented sandbox technology, which yielded the following best practices:

  • Consider the technical, resource, and cost implications
  • Prioritize deployment flexibility, integration, and automation
  • Identify and vet a wide cast of vendor solutions
  • Review third-party tests and conduct internal testing

Read this brief to see how your peers conducted their evaluations, what they found during implementation, and how they would do it differently next time.
