We are excited to announce that Palo Alto Networks Traps advanced endpoint protection has achieved a “Recommended” rating, and is positioned in the upper-right corner of the NSS Labs AEP Security Value Map (SVM), indicating outstanding protection and low total cost of ownership.

Attackers must complete a certain sequence of events to successfully accomplish their objectives, whether stealing information or running ransomware. Nearly every attack relies on compromising an endpoint, and although most organizations have deployed endpoint protection, infections are still common.

By combining multiple methods of prevention, Traps stands apart in its ability to protect endpoints. Traps blocks security breaches and successful ransomware attacks that leverage malware and exploits, known or unknown, before they can compromise an endpoint. The NSS Labs AEP test validates Palo Alto Networks prevention-first philosophy.

The Palo Alto Networks Security Operating Platform addresses these challenges by integrating network, cloud and endpoint security with threat intelligence to provide automated protection that prevents successful cyberattacks. Our platform natively integrates security capabilities across the entire ecosystem and applies them at the right place, addressing all stages of an attack lifecycle.

NSS Labs performed an independent test of Palo Alto Networks Traps v4.1. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS Labs facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test Methodology v2.0, which is available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge, and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for our inclusion.

Highlights from the test include:

  • 100% malware delivered via docs and scripts blocked
  • 100% exploits detected and blocked
  • 100% evasions blocked
  • 0% false positives
  • Low TCO due to high block rate and low operational overhead

Unit 42 Report - Ransomware: Unlocking the Lucrative Criminal Business Model
Ransomware, specifically cryptographic ransomware, has quickly become one of the greatest cyber threats facing organizations around the world. This criminal business model has proven to be highly effective in generating revenue for cyber criminals in addition to causing significant operational impact to affected organizations. It is largely victim agnostic, spanning across the globe and affecting all major industry verticals. Small organizations, large enterprises, individual home users – everyone is a potential target. Ransomware has existed in various forms for decades, but in the last several years criminals have perfected the key components of these attacks. This has led to an explosion of new malware families and has drawn new actors into participating in these lucrative schemes.
