Check Point Wins Third-Straight ‘Recommended’ Rating from NSS Labs in 2016
October 2016 by Check Point
Check Point has received a ‘Recommended’ rating in the 2016 NSS Labs Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) Test. This represents the third NSS ‘Recommended’ ratings this year and is the company’s thirteenth overall NSS Labs ‘Recommended’ rating since 2011.
Check Point’s advanced threat prevention products, including SandBlast zero day threat prevention and its threat extraction technologies, deliver comprehensive protections against a broad set of attacker-initiated and target-initiated exploits. Check Point’s Intrusion Prevention (IPS) is integral part of these advanced threat prevention products.
Highlights of Check Point’s results from the NSS Labs 2016 NGIPS report includes:
100% Evasion resistance
100% Protection for Adobe, Apple, IBM and Oracle;
Passed all Application Control, False Positive and Stability and Reliability tests
Leading TCO rating
These top results were achieved by testing Check Point’s IPS product using NSS Labs’ library of over 1,900 exploits. This joins the first two wins this year and completes the company’s trifecta of 2016 NSS Labs ‘Recommended’ ratings in Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), Next Generation IPS (NGIPS), and advanced threat prevention, which NSS refers to as Breach Detection Systems (BDS).
