Independent Testing Confirms Endgame as Uniquely Positioned to Replace AV with Converged Endpoint Security Platform

AV Comparatives Validates Endgame for Signatureless Malware and Exploit Protection in Competitive Test

ARLINGTON, Va., June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Endgame, the company reshaping endpoint security by delivering a converged platform with zero breach tolerance, today announced it has achieved a 99.5% protection rate in an independent test from AV Comparatives. The results were based on a test of nearly 400 new in-the-wild attacks mirroring those which enterprises encounter daily. This test validates Endgame as the only single-agent endpoint platform to unite prevention, detection and response, and threat hunting to stop targeted attacks.

"Endgame performed very creditably on their first anti-malware test, both in blocking malware and avoiding false positives," said Andreas Clementi, CEO of AV-Comparatives. "We were excited to see how Endgame's technology would fare in our tests, and it's more than a match for existing AV products."

A recent Accenture survey found that roughly one in three targeted attacks resulted in a security breach, which equates to two to three effective attacks per month for the average company. The time to detect these breaches compounds the problem, with more than half of executives disclosing that it takes months to detect targeted attacks and as many as a third of all successful breaches are never discovered. Endgame is the only converged solution - now capable to replace AV - that prevents and detects in-progress attacks at scale with a single agent. Endgame protects against the most malicious attack types including never-before-seen malware, in-memory, malwareless, and ransomware attacks.

"Pragmatic customers recognize that effective endpoint security products need to balance high protection rates, low footprint, and efficient access to supporting information," said Fernando Montenegro, senior security analyst at 451 Research. "This allows defense teams to reduce the volume of human interventions, and perform those interventions faster. These results as just announced, along with Endgame's platform architecture, indicate that they understand this dynamic and are able to offer enterprises a fighting chance to address current attacks."

In an industry where customers are constantly inundated with speculative marketing claims from vendors, Endgame is fully committed to transparency and integrity when disclosing the efficacy of its platform. As part of that commitment, Endgame plans to continue to work with AV comparatives to test its prevention technology. Endgame also recently became a member of the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO) and achieved a 100% anti-malware effectiveness rating in an independent evaluation by SE Labs. Endgame's machine-learning malware prevention engine is also public in VirusTotal.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
