Sandbox analysis report acclaims advanced threat prevention product

Check Point : 24 November, 2014  (New Product)
Miercom tests Next Generation Threat protection and cloud based threat emulation service from Check Point with positive results
Sandbox analysis report acclaims advanced threat prevention product

Check Point Next Generation Threat Prevention with ThreatCloud Emulation Service has outperformed competing solutions in a recent assessment performed by Miercom, an independent product test centre.

As known and unknown threats proliferate, an organization's security solution, including its advanced threat prevention products, must safeguard the enterprise network with both accuracy and speed. The “Advanced Threat Prevention with Sandbox Analysis” was conducted to determine the security efficacy of network-based threat prevention solutions that utilize sandboxing or threat emulation technologies. Miercom researchers tested products from five leading security vendors including Check Point, Cisco Sourcefire, FireEye, Fortinet, and a fifth vendor, referred to as Vendor A in this report (due to EULA restrictions).

“Even a single piece of malware inside a network can cause a security event which results in immeasurable and costly damage to an organization. Companies must focus on finding and deploying security solutions with the highest possible catch rate to protect themselves. This research by Miercom demonstrates that Check Point technology has the highest accuracy and performance in the industry,” said Marie Hattar, CMO at Check Point Software Technologies. “At Check Point, we are dedicated to providing best-of-breed security technologies to our customers across the globe, allowing them to focus more on growing their businesses while trusting Check Point for their security solutions.”

Check Point’s award-winning 4800 Next Generation Threat Prevention appliance with Threat Emulation Cloud Service provided the best overall protection against the competition. Performance results included:

* 99.9% overall security efficacy, 3 to 14.5 percentage points higher than its nearest and furthest competitor.
* 100% protection against known threats.
* 100% protection against Zero-Day threats, outperforming competitors by more than 27%.
* Average time malware spent in the sandbox: fastest among all products tested at approx. 3 minutes per sample; the other products analyzed malware samples in an average of 11.5 minutes.

“In today’s business, data is a company’s most valuable asset, and IT professionals need to ensure that their networks are safeguarded against leaks and malicious attacks,” said Robert Smithers, CEO, Miercom. “Check Point’s solution was the most accurate of all products tested capturing the most known and unknown malware, and also had the fastest emulation time for unknown malware. Data was easy to navigate on the solution and the AV and sandbox delivered fast results.”
