Leader in Advanced Malware Detection Recognized for Discovering and Curtailing APTs and Malware That Others Miss, While Reducing False Positives and Non-Correlated Alerts vs. Outdated Security Tools

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - May 3, 2016) - Advanced malware protection provider Lastline, Inc. has been named the winner of the 2016 Cybersecurity Excellence Award for Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Detection for its Lastline Enterprise solution.
