Cybereason Redefines Next-Generation Antivirus by Delivering Nation-State Level Protection for Organizations of All Sizes

Sep 22, 2022

Cybereason, the XDR company, today announced new advancements in Cybereason NGAV (Next-Generation Antivirus) that deliver nation-state level protection for organizations of all sizes – from small businesses to Fortune 500 enterprises. With the addition of two new industry-first protection layers, Cybereason now provides nine distinct prevention layers that detect and block the most advanced attack techniques that circumvent conventional AV and NGAV tools.

“By adding these two sophisticated layers to Cybereason NGAV, Cybereason is redefining prevention by providing customers with more layers of protection than any other solution on the market,” said Lior Div, Cybereason CEO and Co-founder. “With protection capabilities that have already achieved the highest scores in the history of the four MITRE ATT&CK evaluations, our customers can be assured that we are continuing to innovate and empower them to defend forward by proactively ending the most sophisticated attacks as early as possible in the kill chain.”

The Payload Variant Prevention is a first-of-its-kind capability that defeats novel, polymorphic and re-packed malware variants associated with advanced attacker tooling like Cobalt-Strike and Emotet, while the Behavioral Execution Prevention feature detects and blocks attack techniques that abuse legitimate operating system tools.

Each layer of Cybereason NGAV protection is purpose-built to prevent ransomware and other malware infections in unique ways to assure sophisticated attacker tools do not slip by an organization’s defenses:

--Variant Payload Prevention: Blocks novel and mutated malware and ransomware payloads

--Behavioral Execution Prevention: Prevents abuse of legitimate services

--Predictive Ransomware Protection: Prevents file encryption by ransomware and restores encrypted files

--Fileless Attack Prevention: Blocks in-memory command line and script-based attacks

--Exploit Prevention: Prevents exploitation of Windows vulnerabilities

--AI-Powered Anti-Malware: Blocks novel and mutated malware variants

--Anti-Malware: Blocks known and commoditized malware variants

--Endpoint Controls: Blocks unauthorized device and network connections and ensures full disk encryption

--Behavioral Document Prevention: Blocks malicious macros

Earlier this year, Cybereason reaffirmed its industry-leading position in reversing the adversary advantage by posting the best results in the history of MITRE ATT&CK evaluations, including: 

--100% Prevention: Cybereason detected and prevented 100 percent of the nine attack sequences for both Windows and Linux

--100% Visibility: Cybereason exposed 100 percent of the 109 attack behaviors for both Windows and Linux

--100% Real-Time Protection: Cybereason had zero delayed detections

--99% Analytic Coverage: Achieving the industry best for deeply contextualized detections
