Fidelis Cybersecurity Recognized as a Strong Performer in Automated Malware Analysis, Q2 2016 Report
Fidelis Cybersecurity, the leading provider of products and services for detecting and stopping advanced cyberattacks, announces its Fidelis Network® (formerly Fidelis XPS™) advanced threat defense solution has been recognized as a Strong Performer in The Forrester Wave™ Automated Malware Analysis, Q2 2016 report. The report specifically gives Fidelis Network the highest score possible in the threat intelligence and encrypted traffic inspection criteria.
Forrester defines automated malware analysis tools as a new class of security technology that shifts from manual, labor-intensive threat analysis to automated security solutions to detect known malware and new exploits. As enterprises consider their options, security professionals face an ever-changing and overwhelming array of complex technologies from numerous vendors. They want improved usability and integrations that move beyond signature-based defenses, which have become increasingly inefficient and ineffective against the sheer volume of evolving threats.
“Fidelis helps organizations reduce the time it takes to detect and stop attackers no matter where they are hiding on their network or endpoints,” said Fidelis Cybersecurity Chief Technology Officer Kurt Bertone. “We believe The Forrester Wave™ recognition validates our core strengths in delivering deep visibility and detection across the entire attack lifecycle. Malware detection is just one part of our overall solution that includes deep session inspection, behavioral analysis, threat intelligence and security analytics to detect and respond to threats that other solutions miss.”
The Forrester Wave™ report authors Jeff Pollard and Kelley Mak write, “Customers with an appetite for an investigation-oriented platform who value the use of network signature detection should consider Fidelis due to the user interface and sophisticated signature set.” Further, “Fidelis Cybersecurity adds value to dynamic analysis with analytics,” and “features capable dynamic analysis and a product suite focused on investigation across network and endpoints.”
Forrester executed a rigorous evaluation methodology by extensively reviewing products from 11 top automated malware analysis providers. The evaluation included in-depth research incorporating vendor surveys, product demos and customer reference calls. Products were researched, scored and evaluated across 36 criteria measurements. The report shows how each provider ranked to help security professionals make well-informed decisions in expanding their threat analysis and intelligence capabilities.
Fidelis Network detects the tools and tactics of advanced attackers including advanced malware, exploits and command and control activity that typically bypass traditional network security systems such as firewalls and intrusion prevention systems. It also identifies attacker behavior including lateral movement and the staging of data for exfiltration. Fidelis Network’s patented Deep Session Inspection® technology makes it possible to quickly identify attacker activity across all phases of the attack lifecycle by extracting and storing rich metadata regarding every single content object that traverses the network – enabling analysts to quickly investigate, reconstruct attacker activity and prevent them from moving further into the organization’s environment.
