Real-world independent testing reveals FireEye as the only next-gen endpoint solution with zero false positives
MILPITAS, Calif., Dec. 18, 2018 – FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced that AV-Comparatives has awarded FireEye® Endpoint Security their Approved Business Product Award for endpoint protection and performance capabilities. In the latest round of tests FireEye detected 99.3 percent of malicious activity and reported zero false positive alerts.
“Attackers get better every day and differentiating the bad from the good is a constant battle. Adding to the detection challenge, security teams are almost universally short-staffed, and any time spent investing false positives takes away from pursing legitimate threats,” said Michelle Salvado, vice president of endpoint engineering at FireEye. “FireEye’s unique differentiator is the extensive intelligence gained from the front lines of cybersecurity, including responding to incidents, breach intelligence, and machine intelligence. Our focus is on integrating that intelligence to constantly improve our anti-malware engines, like our machine learning and behavioral analysis models, to detect the latest malicious techniques – and when FireEye Endpoint triggers an alert, our customers know it’s worth investigating.”
Eliminate False-Positive Fatigue
False alerts are costly to any security operation. They take away limited analyst time and bury real threats underneath thousands of non-critical ones. The manual nature of reviewing these alerts puts a huge burden on companies in the form of wasted analyst time and alert fatigue among those responsible for protecting an organization. The additional maintenance work also increases the complexity of deployment and can increase the total cost of solution ownership.
To earn the Approved Business Product Award, tested products must score at least 90 percent in the Malware Protection Test and at least 90 percent in the overall Real-World Protection Test over the course of four months with zero false alarms on common business software. Tested products must also avoid major performance issues and have fixed all reported bugs in order to gain certification. Results showed that FireEye had zero false positives, while simultaneously protecting against 99.7 percent of malware, and 99.3 percent of real-world scenarios.
