Cisco from its barrio have announced that its Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), originally developed by Sourcefire, was ranked among the top solutions in NSS Labs’ latest Security Value Map (SVM) for Breach Detection Systems (BDS), earning a “Recommended” rating.
NSS Labs from its part measured AMP’s efficacy and TCO per protected Mbps, finding that the solution delivered top protection faster than all other vendors – far outpacing competitive solutions. The results of NSS Labs’ rigorous testing further validates Cisco’s continuous approach to shield patrons against advanced threats from the cloud en route for the network to the endpoint and across the attack continuum – before, during and after an attack.
Assumed today’s threat landscape, “point-in-time” technologies, for instance sandboxes or antivirus, are only one part of a required solution since advanced malware can evade these defenses. Advanced Malware Protection is the only solution that goes beyond point-in-time detection to offer continuous analysis, retrospective security, and multi-source Indicators of Compromise (IoC).
Retrospective security specifically provides the ability to “go back in time” and identify, contain and then remediate malware that initially evades defenses, filling an important gap existing in point-in-time products. Pooled, this makes AMP the best value in the market today with industry leading total-cost-of-ownership (TCO)/protected Mbps.
