On December 8th, 2015 the International Computer Security Association (ICSA) announced the results of the advanced threat defense (ATD) solution certification testing. Given Trend Micro’s track record of active participation in industry tests such as, NSS Labs Breach Detection testing, the results of the ICSA test further demonstrates the detection efficacy of Deep Discovery.
This independent, comprehensive test was run over a 28 day period and involved more than 600 malicious samples delivered on hundreds of test runs. Full disclosure, Trend Micro has paid ICSA Labs to participate in the ATD solution certification testing and subsequent tests throughout the course of 2016. Our rationale is simple; we believe open and transparent testing is good for the industry, good for our products and, of most importance, is of benefit to our customers.
In our view, the NSS Labs Breach Detection test results over the last two years, along with the ICSA Labs certification, are illustrative of the fact Deep Discovery is an effective investment against the problem of targeted attacks and advanced threats. Trend Micro will continue to invest to ensure our customers continue to have best-in-class options to detect not just everything from malicious attack code but, to the initial point of entry through asset identification, lateral movement and data exfiltration.
Our customers know we take a comprehensive approach to the targeted attack problem. This is demonstrated in our ongoing operating assumption that adversaries will not always behave in a predictable manner. For example, while a small subset of attack vectors may be in vogue at any point in time, what attackers do within those vectors, and their ability to use other vectors and attacks methods, can change at any time. It is for this reason Trend Micro takes a broad approach to detecting targeted attacks. Specifically:
With proven best in class detection and a low cost of ownership, Deep Discovery should be on your short list.
