According to F-Secure FressRoom October 16, network security provider F-Secure successfully completed the first round of MITRE ATT&CKTM evaluation. This test, based on the technology used by APT, evaluates the vendor’s Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution, confirming that F-Secure’s ability to detect advanced threats is among the best in the industry. These results provide a solid foundation for f-secure’s EDR technology and build comprehensive detection and response capabilities.
The first round of this evaluation involved F-Secure’s EDR capabilities. F-Secure’s modern cloud-based detection technology, data science and ongoing research provide leading EDR capabilities. Some key areas of the test process, including telemetry coverage and detection coverage, all in real time, without any delay.
Alex Davies, senior security researcher at F-Secure said, “Our results show that F-Secure both comprehensively detects a nation state threat actor such as APT3, and provides what is needed when it comes to data and detections. Ensuring you have the right EDR tool is a key initial step, and building a mature security team to provide 24/7 monitoring and investigation to respond to a full range of threats will maximize the value it brings.”
The comprehensive MITER ATT&CKTM assessment is a reliable framework for independently testing attack tactics and technical inspection capabilities. EDR is just one key component of this fight.
Tim Orchard, Head of F-Secure’s MDR Business Unit commented, “For some organizations, purchasing an EDR to support a strong team and set of processes is right for their overall security strategy,” he says. “For others – based on their size and ability to attract and retain high-caliber staff capable of thinking like attackers – it’s procuring a fully-managed service. F-Secure is proud to support this wide range of options, all underpinned by the technology that MITRE recognizes as industry leading.”
