Maidenhead, UK – 7th June, 2017 – Carbon Black, a leader in next-generation endpoint security, today announced that CB Defense, the company’s next-generation antivirus (NGAV) solution, was named Best Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Solution at the SC Magazine Awards Europe 2017, which took place in central London on the evening of the 6th June.
Now in its fourth decade, the SC Magazine Awards Europe is a highly acclaimed and esteemed event. The awards are recognised as a prestigious prize for the European information security industry.
Carbon Black’s CB Defense was one of hundreds of entries judged by expert judges drawn from the senior ranks of the information security profession and selected for their experience and impartiality.
CB Defense is a cloud-based NGAV solution for desktops, laptops, and servers that combines advanced protection with detection and response capabilities. Designed to protect organisations from the full spectrum of modern cyber-attacks, CB Defense is powered by Carbon Black’s streaming prevention technology, which collects, correlates and analyses endpoint events, in real time, enabling organisations to identify and stop an attack while it builds.
Streaming prevention offers a fundamentally new approach to identifying and preventing cyberattacks. Current approaches used by legacy AV and machine-learning AV focus exclusively on files and do nothing to target an attacker’s behaviours.
Commenting on the win, Patrick Morley, CEO of Carbon Black said:
“We are proud that CB Defense has been recognised at the SC Awards Europe. Winning Best Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Protection solution is a notable accolade and verifies that CB Defense is among the market leaders in endpoint security.”
