FireEye Endpoint Security Achieves Highest Testing Results Amongst NGAV Products

In the most recent AV-Comparatives Real-World Protection Test results, FireEye Endpoint Security achieved the highest detection rate among next-gen anti-virus vendors with zero false positives.

FireEye was able to accomplish this result through a constant flow of innovations that originates with FireEye’s deep front-line understanding of real-world threats. Tens of thousands of hours analyzing attacks targeting hundreds individual verticals in every industry provided the insight and confidence that led to the development of effective enhanced capabilities within FireEye’s next-gen machine learning engine MalwareGuard and behavioral protection engine ExploitGuard.

FireEye’s experience and understanding of threat and attack vectors undeniably validates an approach that favors the use of multiple cooperative anti-malware engines on the endpoint. This approach not only streamlines the focus of the machine learning and behavioral engines to detecting advanced threat and exploits, but most importantly eliminate all concerns over false positives as demonstrated by FireEye’s consistent zero false-positive results in 3rd party testing. False positives require regular additional maintenance work by organizations to tune out which increases the complexity of the deployment, increases overall workload by administrators and ultimately increases the total cost of ownership of the solution.

FireEye is the world’s leading cyber security company with security solutions for endpoint, email, and network. FireEye’s Mandiant team is the single most trusted name when organizations are under attack and they need to quickly and precisely determine what happened, how to stop it and how to prevent it in the future.

AV Comparatives is an independent testing organization that creates a real-world environment for accurate testing cyber security products. AV-Comparatives offers freely accessible results to individuals, news organizations and scientific institutions. FireEye participates in independent, third-party testing to demonstrate a strong commitment to the industry and transparency in Endpoint Security.
