A sandbox is a secluded environment within a network that imitates the end-user operating backgrounds. The setup is useful in enhancing safety when executing suspicious codes and testing new software. It eliminates the risk of adverse harm to host devices or networks in the production environment. In advanced malware detection, sandboxes provide an additional layer of protection against advanced security threats and stealth attacks. The benefit of using a sandbox is that it prevents system failures and acts as a barrier against the spread of software vulnerabilities. The proactive layer of a sandbox improves network security by providing a reliable defence against Advanced Persistent Threats (APT).
