Trustwave Blocks 100 Percent of Web-based Exploits in Independent Test

NSS Labs Test Shows Trustwave Secure Web Gateway Provides Enterprises with Real-Time Protection from Dynamic Malware

CHICAGO - September 8, 2016 - Trustwave today announced that the Trustwave Secure Web Gateway blocked 100 percent of exploits and proved effective against all evasion techniques in a recent, independent test conducted by NSS Labs, Inc.

Highlights from the test report include:

  • Trustwave Secure Web Gateway "blocked 100% of exploits." The report stated, it "can detect and block web-based attacks effectively."
  • Trustwave "proved effective against all evasion techniques tested." In fact, Trustwave passed all evasion technique tests including URL obfuscation, HTML obfuscation, payload encoding, binary obfuscation and layered evasions.
  • Trustwave "passed all stability and reliability tests."

Trustwave Secure Web Gateway provides enterprises with real-time protection from the hundreds of millions of new pieces of dynamic malware and ransomware attackers create each year, including those that are obscured or encrypted. It provides an effective alternative to security systems that rely on malware signatures and sandboxes that often allow the first instance of malware through before identifying and blocking a threat. Delivered as a physical or virtual appliance or as a managed security service, it's easy to deploy, manage and keep up-to-date.

Trustwave Senior Vice President of Product Management C.J. Spallitta said, "This independent test confirms what we already knew about the Trustwave Secure Web Gateway: it's a highly effective solution for protection from web-based threats including exploits and malware. We're proud of the product's performance within NSS Labs, but are even prouder of its performance protecting enterprises worldwide."

NSS Labs performed the thorough test of the Trustwave Secure Web Gateway at the NSS Testing Facility in Austin, Texas. The test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Trustwave participation. The product was subjected to NSS Labs' Secure Web Gateway Test Methodology v1.5.1 available at www.nsslabs.com.
