Lastline Earns Recommended Rating in NSS Labs Breach Detection System Comparative Evaluation

Independent Lab Recommends Lastline for Superior Security Effectiveness and Overall Value with Excellent Security Effectiveness against Advanced Attacks

LAS VEGAS, NV, August 4, 2015, Lastline Booth #252 — In the NSS Labs Breach Detection System (BDS) Group Test published today, global breach detection provider Lastline was recognized as a leader in Breach Detection due to excellent Security Effectiveness and low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), achieving an overall Recommended rating on the NSS Security Value Map™.

NSS Labs, a leader in independent security product testing and research, conducted comprehensive security effectiveness testing across eight BDS vendors. All vendor products were deployed in replicated enterprise environments and evaluated for their ability to detect a wide range of malware and exploits that attackers use in malicious Web, e-mail and other delivery methods to evade security products, gain footholds in networks and compromise sensitive information.

“We recommend the Lastline Breach Detection Platform as it offers excellent security effectiveness and impressive performance in detecting advanced threats across multiple protocols,” said Vikram Phatak, CEO at NSS Labs. “Our research team is impressed with the innovative and adaptive security technology Lastline has developed to provide comprehensive detection of malicious files and documents, even in a high volume enterprise environment.”

Because its security technology is so effective and performant, Lastline has seen tremendous customer growth on a global scale since launching in 2011. In fact, the company has nearly ten times more enterprise customers today than at the start of 2013 with triple digit year-over-year licensing growth.

“The NSS Labs test empirically validating the superior effectiveness and performance of our advanced breach detection technology is consistent with what we are hearing from CISOs in large enterprises worldwide,” said Jens Andreassen, CEO of Lastline. “Lastline consistently delivers better protection in tests, proof of concepts and in the wild.”
