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 Advanced Endpoint Protection represents a complete paradigm shift from identification to pure prevention. Providing comprehensive exploit and malware prevention that is not designed to identify; instead, it prevents an attack before the malware can be successful.
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.
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.
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.
