Boston, MA, United States, 2020/06/18 - Cybereason today announced that its award-winning endpoint protection platform, the Cybereason Defense Platform, was recognized as the highest rated endpoint platform in NSS Labs, Inc.’s Advanced Endpoint Protection Q2 2020 Comparative Report.
Cybereason, a leader in endpoint protection, today announced that its award-winning endpoint protection platform, the Cybereason Defense Platform, was recognized as the highest rated endpoint platform in NSS Labs, Inc.’s Advanced Endpoint Protection Q2 2020 Comparative Report.
Cybereason was one of 12 companies to have its endpoint solution tested in several categories, including: Resistance to Evasion, Malware Delivered over Email, Malware Delivered over HTTP, Tuning and False Positives and Drive by Exploits. It’s overall ‘AA Rating’ equates to a near perfect score for endpoint protection.
“Attaining NSS Labs 2020 endpoint protection highest score further validates what third-party organizations are saying about Cybereason’s advanced endpoint protection platform and services. With our multi-layered prevention capabilities, Cybereason is able to prevent advanced attacks and protect our customers, allowing security teams to focus on additional critical remediation tasks,” said Lior Div, CEO and Cofounder, Cybereason.
According to the NSS Labs 2020 AEP product rating report (nsslabs.com),“It is imperative that endpoint protection correctly handles evasions. If an endpoint protection platform fails to detect a single form of evasion, an attack can bypass protection. Our engineers verified that Cybereason’s endpoint protection was capable of detecting and blocking malware when subjected to numerous evasion techniques.”
This year, Cybereason has received several third-party validations for the Cybereason Defense Platform. The company has the top-ranked current offering in the published “The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Detection & Response, Q1 2020.” And in the completed MITRE ATT&CK product evaluations, Cybereason successfully defended against techniques frequently used by cybercrime group APT29. The company also expanded its product offering with the launch of Cybereason Mobile, a new cloud-based offering designed to help enterprises prevent, detect and respond to both mobile device and traditional endpoint risks.
Cybereason received high scores in several AEP test categories, including:
Resistance to Evasion:
Cybereason blocked 100 percent of the malware and exploits when subjected to 49 evasion techniques used by NSS Labs during the test.
Malware Delivered over Emails:
The Cyber Defense Platform blocked 99.9 percent of the 1,531 malicious emails sent during the test. Crime actors have turned to social engineering to successfully breach enterprises through spear phishing, hijacked email accounts and other deception techniques.
Malware Delivered over HTTP:
The Cyber Defense Platform blocked 98.3 percent of 424 attacks using websites to deliver malware. Hackers oftentimes hijack widely used websites to carry out malware attacks.
Tuning and False Positives:
The Cyber Defense Platform was tested against a varied sample of legitimate application traffic that might be identified as false positives. Cybereason flagged less than 1 percent of the 645 samples, that included but wasn’t limited to the following file formats, exe, jar, pdf, doc, docx, zip and xls.
Drive by Exploits:
The Cyber Defense Platform blocked 98 percent of the 256 drive-by exploits. A popular infection technique used by criminal actors is to exploit a user that visits a particular website and installs the exploit onto the users computer.
