Cynet Gets VB100 ‘Stamp of Approval’
Cynet Scores 100% in Virus Bulletin Test for WildList Detection with 0% False Positives
NEW YORK, New York — Wednesday, March 13, 2019
Cynet, pioneers of the automated threat discovery and mitigation platform (www.cynet.com), announced today that the Cynet 360 platform has been certified by Virus Bulletin as a VB 100 product. This means the product meets certain performance standards in the anti-malware category.
In order to achieve VB100 certification, a product must miss no more than 0.5% of WildList samples, and block no more than 0.01% of legitimate files. The VB100 test considers a legitimate file that is blocked at least once, a false positive, and a WildList file that isn’t blocked, a miss.
The VB100 test entails installing the product under review on two platforms (Windows 10 and Windows 7). On each platform and at three different times, the product is asked to scan both the latest version of the WildList and a selection of clean files taken from Virus Bulletin‘s own set of files belonging to popular, legitimate software. Products that live up to expectation are provided with the VB100 ‘stamp of approval.’
“The VB100 certification is yet another reflection of the high accuracy and exceptional performance of the Cynet platform that our customers have come to expect,” said founder and co-CEO Eyal Gruner. “While other products leave their users drowning in false alerts, Cynet’s correlation of users, files, network traffic and host activities ensures prevention and detection across the entire organizational environment.”
The Cynet platform unifies all aspects of breach protection in a single interface, giving a clear picture of activity across the organization, enabling rapid response, and making it the solution of choice for small to medium enterprises worldwide. Said Co-CEO Uzi Krieger, “With the Cynet platform’s automated discovery capabilities, plus its coverage of all threat vectors, across all attack stages, achieving this level of accuracy is our guiding principle. We strive to achieve it every time, and we anticipate nothing less.”
About the VB100 Certification Report
For more than two decades, Virus Bulletin has set a minimum standard for anti-virus (or anti-malware) products, checking whether products live up to expectation and providing those that do with the VB100 ‘stamp of approval.’
Cynet is a security platform that protects organizations from breaches by automated discovery and mitigation of all threat vectors across all attack stages. Cynet is the first solution that protects the entire environment, by correlating users, files, network traffic and host activities with a complete set of threat prevention and detection tools joined by pre-set and custom auto-remediation policies for post-compromise activity. By unifying all aspects of breach protection in a single interface, Cynet eliminates the need for multi-product security stacks, and the dependency on high-level security skills.
