Invincea Receives Five-Star Rating From SC Magazine, Recommended for Advanced Endpoint Protection

Perfect Score Follows Company's Recent Selection to 2015 CRN Emerging Vendors List

FAIRFAX, VA--(Marketwired - September 14, 2015) - Invincea, the leader in advanced endpoint threat protection, announced today that SC Magazine recognized Invincea Advanced Endpoint Protection with a perfect five-star rating for every category in its 2015 Endpoint Security Group Test. The test, which looked at 10 solutions, crowned Invincea as the only "next generation recommended product." The accolades from SC Magazine's review follow Invincea's separate, recent selection to The Channel Company's exclusive 2015 CRN® Emerging Vendors List.

"Our solution is the proven market leader in defeating today's sophisticated attacks against enterprises and their users -- the most vulnerable attack surface in the organization," said Invincea Founder and CEO Anup Ghosh. "This recognition underscores Invincea's leadership in next-generation endpoint security, highlighting the technology relied on by more than 25,000 companies and 2 million end users. At a time when organizations are replacing paid anti-virus and other outdated security measures, Invincea stands apart with an integrated and state-of-the-art approach to preventing, detecting, and responding to advanced threats."

Invincea's endpoint solution stops attacks that evade all other endpoint and network security controls, with SC Magazine noting, "Not even the most advanced zero-day can escape." The vast majority of breaches begin with endpoint compromises, as adversaries evolve sophisticated spear-phishing and other campaigns using a wide range of exploits and even file-less intrusions now, which easily evade file-centric endpoint solutions. As documented in Invincea's 1H 2015 Advanced Endpoint Threat Report, spear-phishing, malvertising attacks via online ad networks, just-in-time (JIT) on-host malware assembly, and weaponized Microsoft Office documents are top methods of reliably compromising end users.

In its review, SC Magazine said Invincea "is a very competent anti-malware tool that really focuses on the task at hand: protecting the endpoint from malware threats. It does this by encapsulating the endpoint application in a virtual environment and allowing malicious files to detonate, but containing the attack so that not even the most advanced zero-day can escape. That's a pretty strong statement, but Invincea lives up to it because the tool has no need for signatures or traditional heuristics."

The 2015 CRN Emerging Vendors List features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands.
