ARLINGTON, Va., Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Endgame, a leading provider of endpoint security solutions to hunt advanced adversaries, announced testing results of its novel hardware assisted exploit prevention technology (HA-CFI) at Black Hat USA 2016. HA-CFI, the first solution of its kind, achieved 96% detection in a rigorous internal test that included 68 unique exploits. By comparison, Microsoft EMET, the most widely-used host exploit prevention technology, achieved only 83% detection. HA-CFI, integrated with Endgame's Hunt platform, will provide analysts with immediate detection of known and never-before-seen attacks, eliminating the cost and time associated with incident response.
Endgame HA-CFI monitors program execution in real-time and prevents attacks on endpoints before damage and loss of critical assets, earlier than any product available in the industry. This technology is part of a multi-layer set of capabilities that protect against exploitation of broad classes of vulnerabilities and adversary techniques, including heap-overflows, use-after-frees, and return oriented programming. Endgame deployed a very rigorous internal test for both HA-CFI and Microsoft EMET against a broad class of vulnerabilities, including Metasploit and in-the-wild samples. The testing spanned dozens of common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) and several vulnerability classes and exploit techniques across multiple years.
HA-CFI technology is integrated with Endgame's end-to-end Hunt platform, which provides enterprises with early detection and eviction of known and never-before-seen threats at all stages of the kill chain. To learn more about this technology, stop by for a demo at Booth #1554 at Black Hat USA, or attend Endgame's Black Hat presentation on CFI on Wednesday, August 3rd at 10:20am PT.
Endgame is a leading provider of next generation endpoint security solutions that enable enterprises to automate the hunt for the most sophisticated adversaries within their networks. The Endgame Hunt platform empowers hunt teams, incident responders, and security operators to conduct an end-to-end hunt mission, significantly reducing the time to detect and contain adversaries. Our IOC-independent platform covers the entire kill chain, leveraging machine learning and data science to uncover, in real-time, unique attacks that evade traditional defenses and respond precisely without disrupting normal business operations.
