Carbon Black Is the Only Vendor to Secure a Perfect Prevention Score in NSS Labs’ Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test

February 14, 2017 / Michael Viscuso

In NSS Labs’ Advanced Endpoint Protection Test, Carbon Black achieved 100% block rate and 100% total coverage score, securing the distinguished rating: “recommended for security effectiveness.”

Carbon Black was the only vendor to secure a perfect prevention score.

According to its report, “NSS Labs performed the industry’s most rigorous test to date of leading Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) solutions. Products from 13 different vendors were tested across a multitude of attack threat vectors targeting a very dynamic enterprise class endpoint attack surface. In addition, the endpoint products were evaluated for their resistance against several evasion categories and false positive testing.”

In the test, Carbon Black was the only vendor to achieve a Security Effectiveness rating of 100% as well as a false positive rate of 0.00%.

In the test, Cb Protection also blocked:

  • 100% of malware delivered by HTTP
  • 100% of malware delivered by HTTPS
  • 100% of malware delivered over email
  • 100% of malware using P2P as its transport mechanism
  • 100% of attacks in the local intelligence test
  • 100% of exploits
  • 100% of blended threats.
  • 100% of evasion techniques

By stopping all attacks in NSS Labs’ test, Cb Protection demonstrated it can save customers millions of dollars in breach-related expenses. According to the 2016 Ponemon Cost of a Data Breach Study, the average cost of a successful data breach is $4 million.

Critical systems, such as data centers and fixed-functions devices, are among the most breached assets and require the strongest protection. Traditional defenses, such as legacy antivirus, are ineffective at stopping advanced attacks against these systems.

NSS Labs’ AEP competitive test shows Cb Protection provides the strongest form of lock-down security.

 width=Cb Protection provides the most proven application control solution for enterprise endpoints and critical systems. With Cb Protection, IT, compliance, infrastructure, and security teams establish automated software execution controls and protection policies that safeguard corporate and customer data.

Cb Protection works with existing software distribution systems and reputation services to automate approval of trusted software and eliminate whitelist management. This level of control reduces the attack surface of highly-sensitive and targeted systems such as desktops, laptops, servers, point-of-sale devices, and others to eliminate system downtime due to malware and ensure regulatory compliance.
