6 Aug. 2015 – Trend Micro Incorporated, a global leader in security software and solutions, today announced Trend Micro™ Deep Discovery™ Inspector v3.7 has once again received a “recommended” rating based on the NSS Labs Breach Detection Systems (BDS) test with an overall score of 96 percent.
The evaluation analysed overall detection rates of targeted attacks and advanced threats among a field of eight security companies. For the second year running, Deep Discovery has been cited as the most effective “Recommended” breach detection system, providing superior detection at a dramatically lower total cost of ownership.
“The NSS Labs Breach Detection Test is significant because it helps cut through the marketing noise from some companies in our space that make bold claims, yet fall short on execution according to the report,” said Dhanya Thakkar, Managing Director, Trend Micro APAC.
“Targeted attacks and advanced threats have become increasingly sophisticated and aggressive, making effective breach detection paramount for companies regardless of industry. Deep Discovery has consistently proven to be a reliable solution to face this challenge. Another distinct advantage we offer is the accessibility of our solution among even the most budget-conscious organisations.”
The test confirmed Deep Discovery’s ability to detect a broad spectrum of Web-, email- and file-based threats. Evaluation scenarios included analyses of command and control, zero-day exploits and advanced malware, in addition to other malicious payloads that plague networks.
“Today’s networks are under constant assault and it’s realistic to assume that an infiltration by a targeted attack or advanced threat has already taken place,” said Vikram Phatak, CEO, NSS Labs. “This fact underscores the need for a best in class breach detection solution to quickly assess network integrity and respond accordingly. Based on our impartial testing, Trend Micro Deep Discovery’s consistent performance distinguishes itself as the most effective of the breach detection products that achieved a recommended status, a noteworthy accomplishment, and should definitely be on everyone’s short list.”
Deep Discovery is unique given its ability to monitor and detect threats across a broader attack surface than comparable offerings. Through a single appliance, it identifies malicious and suspicious activity throughout an entire network.
Unlike perimeter based offerings Deep Discovery Inspector monitors all network traffic across all ports, and more than 100 protocols leveraging multiple detection capabilities in addition to custom sandboxing. Plus, threat insight from Deep Discovery can be automatically shared with both Trend Micro and third party offerings using automated real-time security updates.
