FireEye, Inc. (NASDAQ: FEYE), the intelligence-led security company, today announced that FireEye Network Security (NX) achieved Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) certification in the latest round of independent testing from ICSA Labs, a leading third-party testing and certification body and an independent division of Verizon.
FireEye NX Series detected 100 percent of the threats it encountered during the test cycle. According to ICSA Labs, this is the first time that a security vendor's solution detected all threats it faced. ICSA Labs testing reported only one false positive, spotlighting how the accuracy of FireEye detection reduces the time and effort wasted on non-malicious alerts.
ICSA Labs tests ATD products using real, prodigious sources of new and little-known malware and delivering them to vendor ATD solutions via the same means that they would be delivered to unsuspecting enterprises.
FireEye NX underwent 36 consecutive days of testing during the third quarter of 2016, demonstrating excellent threat detection effectiveness against over 360 new and little-known threats. ICSA Labs tested the detection capabilities of FireEye NX with a mix of 738 test runs using recently harvested threats that were not detected by traditional security products. ICSA Labs also launched innocuous applications and activities to test FireEye ATD capabilities in terms of false positives.
FireEye NX protects against known and unknown advanced attacks with the signature-less Multi-Vector Virtual Execution™ (MVX™) engine, conventional intrusion prevention system and intelligence-driven detection.
