NSS Labs, a globally recognized and trusted source for independent, fact-based cybersecurity testing, gave a ‘recommended’ rating to Check Point’s SandBlast Agent solution for detecting 100% of HTTP and email threats, and 100% of malware using sophisticated evasion techniques, while giving zero false positives.
