AV-Comparatives, the independent organization that tests and assesses antivirus (AV) software, announced the completion of its 2017 “Comparison of Next-Generation Security Products” and presented Traps advanced endpoint protection with its “Approved” award. The firm conducted a series of malware protection and exploit prevention tests on Traps during September and October 2017. Download the report to view the results of this test.
Palo Alto Networks Traps replaces traditional antivirus with a multi-method prevention approach that secures endpoints against known and unknown malware and exploits before they can compromise a system. Traps prevents security breaches and successful ransomware attacks, in contrast to detection and response after critical assets have been compromised.
Traps Advanced Endpoint Protection:
• Prevents cyberbreaches and successful ransomware attacks by preemptively blocking known and unknown malware, exploits and zero-day threats.
• Protects and enables users to conduct their daily activities and use web-based technologies without concerns for known or unknown cyberthreats.
• Automates prevention by autonomously reprogramming itself using threat intelligence gained from WildFire.
Palo Alto Networks advanced endpoint protect Traps achieved the rating of “Recommend” in the 2018 NSS Labs Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test. This test aims to determine how effectively the AEP product can protect against a threat, regardless of the infection vector or method of obfuscation. The AEP test evaluated several vendors ability to detect, prevent, continuously monitor and take action against malware, exploits, evasions and blended threats.
Most organizations deploy a number of security products to protect their endpoints, including one or more traditional antivirus solutions. Nevertheless, cyber breaches continue to increase in frequency, variety and sophistication. Faced with the rapidly changing threat landscape, current endpoint security solutions and antivirus can no longer prevent security breaches on the endpoint. Palo Alto Networks® Traps™ advanced endpoint protection replaces traditional antivirus with a unique combination of the most effective, purpose-built, malware and exploit prevention methods that pre-emptively block known and unknown threats from compromising a system.
The Expedition Transformation and Best Practices Adoption Tool helps to improve your security posture by comparing your device and policy configurations against Palo Alto Networks best practices, and then automatically identifying and providing remediation recommendations.
This paper highlights an innovative security approach that eliminates the wide range of cloud risks that can cause breaches, while enabling organizations to achieve consistent and frictionless cloud protections for multi-cloud environments.
