#1 in Detection Testing

Perception Point achieved the highest detection accuracy and the lowest false positive rates in independent trials, surpassing the results of Fortinet, Microsoft Defender, and other solutions.

Unlimited Scale

We scan all content — completely. Free from the constraints of conventional sandbox solutions like Avanan, we can accommodate any scale and any demand. There’s no need to depend on guesswork or outdated policy.

Light Speed Prevention

Next generation static and dynamic engines work together to provide an instant and accurate verdict, creating an optimal user experience with minimal latency.

Advanced Anti-Evasion

Perception Point’s anti-evasion engines beat any advanced threats, allowing them to detect even the most hidden threats that are embedded in files and URLs. This makes our solution highly effective against APTs (advanced persistent threats), Zero-Days, exploitation techniques, and more.

Incident Response
Managed Service

An all-included team of experts act as an extension of your organization’s SOC 24/7. They continuously handle all of your security activities for you, managing incidents, optimizing engines, reporting and investigating per users requests.

 

Avanan knows how valuable Incident Response is, yet they charge an additional fee for a lesser service.  Avanan is a solution, we’re a service.
