Forcepoint Selects Lastline to Power its Comprehensive Advanced Malware Detection Solution

Forcepoint joins a growing community of high profile cybersecurity vendors that depend on Lastline to provide comprehensive threat protection.

REDWOOD CITY, CA – May 10, 2017Lastline Inc., the leader in advanced threat protection, today announced a partnership with Forcepoint, a leading cybersecurity technology provider. Offered as the cloud-based Forcepoint Advanced Malware Detection, Lastline’s platform initially will be available with Forcepoint’s Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) solution and later added throughout Forcepoint’s security product line.

“Malware, like all other aspects of today’s cyberattacks, is becoming increasingly evasive, aided and abetted by user actions that range from malicious outsiders to malicious insiders or inadvertent user error,” said Kris Lamb, vice president and general manager of the Cloud Security business at Forcepoint.  “Lastline’s superior malware detection combined with Forcepoint is a comprehensive defense against the most advanced of modern threats.”

The seamless integration of Lastline into Forcepoint solutions and ease of deployment means firewall, web security, email security, and cloud access security broker (CASB) customers can also benefit from full advanced malware detection, all from a single vendor. Forcepoint selecting Lastline for this critically important capability demonstrates Lastline’s best-in-class reputation. After considering options available internally and from competitors, Forcepoint selected Lastline based on demonstrably better detection, ease of integration, and cost effectiveness, providing the highest possible added value to Forcepoint security offerings.

“We’re honored that Forcepoint selected Lastline for their malware detection,” said Brian Laing, VP of Products and Business Development for Lastline. “They are joining an impressive list of market-leading partner companies that, after extensive vetting, identified Lastline as superior to all alternatives, further reinforcing Lastline’s reputation as the best solution available today.”

Independent third parties have validated the superior performance of Lastline for detecting advanced malware. NSS Labs’ 2016 Breach Detection Systems Test recognized Lastline as the only breach detection offering they have ever tested to achieve 100 percent detection effectiveness with zero false positives. And the Forrester Wave™: Automated Malware Analysis Q2 Report identifies Lastline as the strongest current offering on the market.

Forcepoint NGFW with Lastline-powered Advanced Malware Detection is available immediately from Forcepoint. Lastline technology will be integrated into other products over the coming months.
