Trellix, the cybersecurity company delivering the future of extended detection and response (XDR), today announced Trellix Endpoint Security (ENS) earned the highest AAA rating in the SE Labs Endpoint Security (EPS) 2022 Q4 test for both Enterprise and Small Business categories. Trellix ENS achieved a 100 per cent detection rate for malware including ransomware with zero false positives.
SE Labs is a private, independently owned and run testing company who assesses security products and services to improve information technology. It tested a variety of endpoint security products from a range of well-known vendors to judge which were the most effective. Each product was exposed to the same threats, including a mixture of targeted attacks using well-established techniques, public email, and web-based threats living on the internet at the time of the test. The results indicate how effective the products were at detecting and protecting against those threats in real time.
"The SE Labs endpoint security tests are well-known for being incredibly challenging due to their realism and inclusion of advanced threats," said Simon Edwards, chief executive officer, SE Labs. "To achieve a rating of 100 per cent is a fantastic result and testament to the team at Trellix."
"The importance of an endpoint security solution with zero false positives cannot be overstated. Today's Security Operations teams are fighting against a deluge of alerts—they don't have time to be distracted by false positives," said Aparna Rayasam, Trellix's chief product officer. "Trellix ENS is a foundational element of XDR, allowing organizations to detect, respond, and remediate quickly to threats."
To achieve its AAA rating, Trellix had to block malicious URLs, handle exploits, and correctly classify legitimate applications and websites. Notably, Trellix ENS received the top rating due to handling all legitimate applications correctly and stopping all threats, specifically protecting against general and targeted threats. Trellix also excelled against public email and web-based threats commonly used by cyber criminals to attack Microsoft Windows PCs.
Trellix is a global company redefining the future of cybersecurity and soulful work. The company's open and native extended detection and response (XDR) platform helps organizations confronted by today's most advanced threats gain confidence in the protection and resilience of their operations. Trellix, along with an extensive partner ecosystem, accelerates technology innovation through machine learning and automation to empower over 40,000 business and government customers with living security.
Cut out counterfeit attempts? Reid Fruits and Laava show it’s possible
Over three years, Reid Fruits drastically reduced the number of counterfeit attempts on their premium Tasmanian cherries, sold in Asian export markets where the brand was in high demand and had a strong reputation that was at risk from inferior products sold under fake Reid Fruits branding.
In the 2019-20 season, in a bid to fight the fakes, Reid Fruits introduced Laava Smart Fingerprints® on its cherry boxes bound for 20 export markets. The result: only 10 counterfeit attempts, all of which were automatically stopped by the Laava platform.
