"In today’s network environments, malware infections have the potential to spread rapidly, and organizations need to ensure that their networks are protected against known, new and advanced threats," said Vikram Phatak, CEO at NSS Labs. "Check Point Threat Emulation, a key component in the NSS Breach Detection Systems test, addresses this gap by evaluating suspicious code in a safe virtual sandbox. Our team at NSS Labs, recommends Check Point’s innovative solution as it offers excellent security effectiveness and value in detecting known, new and advanced threats."
"Cyberattacks are accelerating in frequency and complexity, and in order to best protect sensitive information, organizations must stay ahead of the latest threats," said Nathan Shuchami, head of threat prevention at Check Point Software Technologies. "Advanced Persistent Threats and spear phishing attacks involving sophisticated exploits, are often based on unknown malicious code designed to evade traditional security solutions. The NSS Labs tests specifically measure the ability to detect these modern hacking techniques, and receiving a ‘recommended’ rating is a testament to the strength of our technology leadership. We are particularly pleased with these results, as they do not yet take advantage of our upcoming CPU-level detection engine, which will further enhance our ability to detect new malware variants at the early stage of exploitation."
