VMware Carbon Black Achieves 100% Malware Protection and Zero False Positives in AV-Comparatives Test

AV-Comparatives recently released the latest results of the Business Security Test 

Out of the 18 leading cyber security vendors tested, VMware Carbon Black was the only vendor to stop 100% of Malware attacks, and that was with zero false positives.  Our platform sees more and stops more attacks, and when it says something is bad or needs your attention, you can trust it. Less noise means your team can spend more time focusing on real threats, speeding time to resolution.

Our platform also stood out above the rest because we achieved these results with an out of the box configuration. Third party tests such as AV-Comparatives are critical in helping you evaluate and compare solutions. That’s why we participate with the most realistic policy settings possible. As AV-Comparatives noted, “Carbon Black may be the only vendor in the test running in a ‘real-world’ out of the box policy in the real-world test.” Unlike other vendors, our platform doesn’t require special browser plug-ins, “aggressive” policy settings, or fine tuning to stop attacks. With VMware Carbon Black, you’re protected out of the box, from day one. 

These results are consistent with the MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK® Evaluation released in March, in which VMware stopped 100% of critical attacks tested. As Scott Lundgren, Chief Technology Officer of VMware’s Security Business Unit noted, “MITRE Engenuity’s rigorous testing reflects the type of threats that our customers are seeing in the real world, where there are no redos. With highly effective detection and prevention, our results demonstrate the power of VMware’s comprehensive endpoint and network visibility, which not only works out of the box, but also works the first time.”
