  • Breach Detection System (BDS) 5.0 Group Test Results
    Breach Detection System (BDS) 5.0 Group Test Results
    Bhaarath Venkateswaran, Director, Product Management, NSS Labs Recorded: Nov 6 2018 32 mins
    On October 11th, we released the results of our Breach Detection System 5.0 Group Test. All three of the vendors that participated in this test achieved the coveted NSS Labs Recommended rating: Lastline, Fortinet, and Trend Micro.

    The test provides enterprises with valuable insights into the security effectiveness, performance, and total cost of ownership (TCO) of the tested products.

    •Time-to-Detect: The time it takes for attempted or successful breaches to be detected can influence an attack’s overall impact. The more time an adversary has to operate after breaching a network, the greater the possible damage. For a BDS product, rapid detection and analysis of both successful and attempted breaches is critical in halting the damage caused by breaches.

    •Evasions: Providing results for a product’s detection capabilities without fully factoring in evasions can be highly misleading in terms of understanding security efficacy; therefore, the security effectiveness score includes evasion techniques. In this test, products were tested against 374 evasions.

    •Resiliency: The resiliency of BDS products was measured by introducing a vulnerability along with its triggers and then asking the products to detect it. By testing resilience, NSS Labs shows enterprises which BDS products detect different variations of an exploit. One product demonstrated full resilience against tested attack variants.

    Attend our BDS 5.0 Group Test webinar on Tuesday, November 6 at 1:00 p.m. CST to find out how each product scored! Our BDS experts will be available during the webinar to address questions about the test and the products tested.

    On September 20th, we released the results of our Next Generation Intrusion Prevention System 4.0 Group Test. The test included products from six of the industry’s leading NGIPS vendors: Forcepoint, Fortinet, IBM, Juniper Networks, Palo Alto Networks, and Trend Micro. This fourth iteration of our NGIPS group test measured:

    •Security effectiveness – A security product that fails to protect what’s important to you can lead to catastrophic consequences for your organization. Understanding a product’s capability to provide protection against exploits including evasion techniques will help you evaluate which NGIPS product is the best fit for your organization.

    •Performance – Thanks to the rapid adoption of social media, streaming video, teleconferencing, and other bandwidth-intensive technologies, network behavior is changing rapidly. Which NGIPS products have adapted, and what should you consider when you are designing your next-generation network?

    •Total cost of ownership (TCO) – Your expenses don’t end when you purchase a product. Installation costs (people), software maintenance, and ongoing policy and log maintenance are some of the expenses you should plan for. Which products have the lowest TCO over a multi-year period?

    Firewall technology is one of the largest and most mature security markets, and the next generation firewall (NGFW) is a prime example of how cybersecurity controls continue to evolve in the face of a constantly changing attack surface. These network security products combine firewall capabilities with intrusion prevention system (IPS) functionality, application control, user awareness, and the capability to integrate threat intelligence feeds.

    NSS Labs recently announced the results of our Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) 8.0 Group Test. In this year’s test, products from 10 of the industry’s leading NGFW vendors were examined for security effectiveness, performance, and total cost of ownership (TCO). In this eighth iteration of the NGFW test, evasion testing was expanded to include resiliency against modified exploits, and the test also included secure sockets layer (SSL)/transport layer security (TLS) testing.

  • Continuous Security Validation for Banking, Financial Services and Insurance
    Continuous Security Validation for Banking, Financial Services and Insurance
    Anil Nandigam – Senior Director, Product Marketing Recorded: Aug 28 2018 56 mins
    Enterprises are projected to spend an estimated $96 billion on security products and services in 2018. But will they have the empirical data to know if those investments actually reduce their exposure to threats? In our discussions with chief information security officers (CISOs), within the financial services industry, this lack of information is a recurring topic of concern.

    Supporting this need for ongoing measurement, governments and regulators have produced a number of frameworks that apply to the financial services industry, including NIST, FFIEC, and GDPR (if conducting business in the European Union). All of these frameworks contain mandates for measuring and monitoring security controls. If you have not yet done so, now is the time to think about the resources you will need to implement a successful continuous monitoring program.

    Anil Nandigam, Senior Director of Product Marketing with NSS Labs, will conduct a live demonstration of the Continuous Security Validation Platform. This cloud-based customizable platform provides real-time empirical data regarding the effectiveness of enterprise security controls and also reveals the operating systems and applications most often targeted by today’s active threats.

    In this webcast, you will learn how NSS Labs’ Continuous Security Validation can help your organization:
    •Gain visibility into the efficacy of security controls
    •Improve internal processes and responses
    •Justify existing security investments or budget requests for new solutions
    •Demonstrate preparedness to management
    •Advance compliance with industry frameworks
