Through constant analysis of suspicious code and identification of communications with malicious hosts, a breach detection system (BDS) can provide enhanced detection of advanced malware, zero-day attacks, and targeted attacks that could bypass defenses such as next generation firewalls, intrusion prevention systems, intrusion detection systems, antivirus/endpoint protection (including host IPS), and secure web gateways. Because of latency issues involved in this type of scanning, BDS typically operate out of band, in detection mode, implementing multiple techniques to analyze and report on malicious traffic.
NSS Labs' Breach Detection System (BDS) Group Test evaluates market-leading BDS products on security effectiveness, performance, stability and reliability, and total cost of ownership (TCO). The BDS Group Test provides individual Test Reports and Comparative Reports that enable enterprises to make informed decisions to evolve and rationalize their cyber risk programs.
Individual Test Reports
Test Reports provide detailed analysis for each product tested. Data from these reports is used in the NSS Labs Comparative Reports.
Test Reports enable enterprise security teams to understand the impact of features and limitations across different products. These reports are used to shortlist products for further evaluation and proof-of concept testing.
