FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Invincea, the machine learning next-generation antivirus company dedicated to killing threats without impacting business performance, today announced that the company’s flagship product, X by Invincea, received the highest scores possible in attack detection and prevention effectiveness criteria and named a ‘Strong Performer’ in The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security, Q4 2016 report.
“We believe Forrester’s rating of a ‘Strong Performer’ for Invincea as a first-time entrant in Forrester’s Wave for Endpoint Security combined with the highest score possible in attack detection and protection effectiveness criteria speaks to the overall power of the technology and its ability to detect and stop attacks,” said Anup Ghosh, Invincea Founder and CEO. “Adding this recognition from Forrester to the product’s long list of accomplishments, rated at the top in malware detection by multiple third party testing institutions, fuels the company’s continued growth in the endpoint security market.”
“The need for more-effective endpoint security controls had never been more apparent,” wrote Chris Sherman, Senior Analyst at Forrester in a separate report. “Over the past year, we have seen numerous large-scale breaches affecting organizations across all industries and sizes. Concurrently, endpoint malware has become increasingly sophisticated, ranging from mass malware loaded with ransomware (as in the case of CryptoLocker) to targeted in-memory attacks used in conjunction with zero-day application/OS exploits.”*
Within the Forrester Wave Report for Endpoint Security, Invincea was cited as “the only vendor evaluated to offer staged protection measures that include signatureless prevention, application containment, and behavior-based detection.”
“A significant malware event got past my other defenses, but Invincea caught it,” said Christopher Walsh, FVP and Information Security Officer, Bank Leumi. “I believe it saved us more than a million dollars for just that one attack.”
Invincea’s deep commitment to security innovation, transparency, and accountability has put the company in a strong leadership position to help customers stop advanced threats. The company’s success is based on the following principles:
- Superior Security Technology - Created by the data scientists at Invincea Labs with DARPA driven technology, X by Invincea is the leading machine learning, next-generation antivirus solution on the market, stopping unknown and known malware with highest detection rates and lowest false positives in the industry.
