Nota per la stampa

 

Trend Micro OfficeScan 10.0, la soluzione per la sicurezza degli endpoint aziendali, ha ottenuto il punteggio più elevato (“Recommend”) nel Group Test Endpoint Protection Products condotto da NSS Labs per valutare l’efficacia della protezione contro il malware Web-based che sfrutta tecniche di social engineering.

 

Mentre in media le soluzioni degli altri Vendor hanno richiesto giorni per bloccare un sito Web pericoloso, per Trend Micro OfficeScan è stata una questione di ore.

Non sponsorizzato né finanziato da alcun Vendor di sicurezza, il test di NSS Labs ha riprodotto in laboratorio le situazioni in cui si trova il tipico utente aziendale e si è concentrato sulle minacce attive in Internet registrate dall’ampia rete di intelligence della società.

 

Di seguito il comunicato completo in inglese. Il testo del report completo NSS Labs in italiano sarà distribuito non appena disponibile.

Trend Micro OfficeScan 10 Earns “Recommend” Rating in NSS Labs’

“Live-in-the-Cloud” Socially-Engineered Malware Test

For the second consecutive time, in unsponsored “real-world” tests conducted by NSS Labs, Trend Micro achieves highest block rate

 

Cupertino, Calif. – July 9, 2010 – Trend Micro has earned  a “Recommend” rating for its over-time protection rating and unique malicious site blocking score in the Q2 2010 NSS Labs Endpoint Protection Products Group Test Report covering  socially-engineered malware. While the average security vendor took days to block a malicious website, Trend Micro had the fastest time, taking only a matter of hours. Not sponsored or funded by any security vendor, the NSS Labs test emulated the experiences of average users and focused on threats active on the Internet gathered from the company’s extensive intelligence network.

 

“For the last two years, NSS Labs has been an instrumental leader in establishing a new scientific baseline of endpoint protection effectiveness based on threat detection rates and time-to-block,” said Raimund Genes, CTO of Trend Micro. “The purpose of NSS Labs testing standards – to determine how well security products protect users from socially-engineered malware – aligns with Trend Micro’s mission of going beyond simple detection rates and focusing on protecting the customer from ‘real-world’ threats, and the speed and aggressiveness with which cybercriminals are moving.”

 

This year, the Trend Micro™ OfficeScan™ product, the company’s enterprise endpoint solution, was rated the best at protecting against socially-engineered malware. OfficeScan achieved an over-time protection rating of 95.2 percent, a unique malicious site blocking score of 86 percent, and caught 60.6 percent of zero-hour blocks, the percent of threats blocked upon first exposure to the endpoint. Its average time-to-block was less than five hours, compared to the overall average of nearly two days (45.8 hours.) Time-to-block is the average time after the first exposure for security vendors to provide a block to new threats.

 

“Trend Micro OfficeScan led the competition in protecting against web-based socially-engineered malware,” said Rick Moy, president of NSS Labs. “Our researchers found the product easy to use and its malware protection consistently excellent throughout testing.”

 

Trend Micro OfficeScan is powered by the Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™ infrastructure. Through the Smart Protection Network, Trend Micro scans, filters and correlates more than 45 billion emails, websites and files every single day, and then leverages that data to rapidly identify and respond to emerging threats, and improve the existing response to known threats.

 

As Trend Micro extends its business into security from the cloud, customers will benefit in real-time -- rather than having to wait for the next update -- as the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network improves its security response. Every new Trend Micro customer joins millions of other Trend Micro customers to help create better and better security to keep out the bad guys in real time.
