Independent analysis completed by Coalfire Systems, a respected leader in cyber risk management and compliance services and a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), concludes that organizations in the financial and healthcare sectors can replace legacy antivirus endpoint products with Traps to help prevent cyber breaches while remaining compliant with federal law and industry standards.
- "Traps uses a unique multi-method approach to prevent cyber breaches, advanced malware, and zero-day exploits to effectively secure endpoints without reliance on static signatures or the need to immediately apply security patches across an organization. These advanced endpoint protection capabilities, along with verified certification from a trusted QSA to meet both PCI DSS and HIPAA security compliance standards, will make the decision to replace legacy AV products with Traps a much easier one for our healthcare and financial services customers."
- Dal Gemmell, head of Traps marketing,
Palo Alto Networks
An alternative to legacy antivirus point products, Traps uniquely combines the most effective, purpose-built malware and exploit detection methods to prevent known and unknown threats before they can successfully compromise an endpoint. It is a key component of the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform, a natively integrated platform that safely enables applications and delivers highly automated, preventive protection against cyberthreats at all stages in the attack lifecycle.
Coalfire's assessment of Traps was reached after completing technical testing; review of the overall design, architecture and supporting documentation; and interviews with subject matter experts.
