Sophos Intercept X achieves highest security effectiveness score in NSS Labs AEP group Test

IT NEWS NIGERIA:

*Sophos Intercept X achieves highest scores in NSS Labs 2019 advanced endpoint protection (AEP) group test

Sophos a global leader in network and endpoint security, announced that its next- gen endpoint solution, Sophos Intercept X, was recognized for having the highest security effectiveness and the most efficient TCO (total cost of ownership) of the 19 endpoint security products tested in the 2019 AEP Group Test published by NSS Labs.

The 2019 Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP 3.0) Group Test tested 21 products from market-leading vendors out of which 19 comparable products were presented in the Security Value Map™ (SVM). These products were examined for security effectiveness and total cost of ownership (TCO).

 “Measuring cybersecurity product effectiveness is unimaginably complex. With threats and attack techniques increasing and evolving at an ever-accelerating rate, testing houses need to make extraordinary investments in their laboratories if they are to produce meaningful and rigorous measurements of cybersecurity product effectiveness.

“But just like all cybersecurity products are not equal, not all testing houses are equal and this remains somewhat opaque to the consumers of their reports, particularly when there is insufficient transparency around methodologies or execution details. Competent independent testing labs provide a great service to vendors and buyers, and are critical to the cybersecurity ecosystem to drive higher standards of protection for all,” said Joe Levy, Chief Technology Officer, Sophos.

Sophos Intercept X includes advanced deep learning technology, which delivers a massively scalable detection model that is able to learn the entire observable threat landscape.

With the ability to process hundreds of millions of samples, deep learning can make more accurate predictions at a faster rate with far fewer false-positives when compared to traditional machine learning.

Sophos Intercept X also includes innovations in anti-ransomware and exploit prevention, and active-hacker mitigations such as credential theft protection. By integrating deep learning technology, Intercept X is changing endpoint security from a reactive to a predictive approach to protect against unknown threats.
