Trend Micro Leads the Pack in MITRE Engenuity’s Latest Evaluation

Discover how Trend Micro takes the lead in cybersecurity, excelling in MITRE Engenuity’s recent evaluation, showcasing its prowess in detecting and preventing cyber threats.

In the most recent evaluation conducted by MITRE Engenuity, a renowned global leader in cybersecurity, Trend Micro has emerged as the top performer, surpassing more than 20 other vendors in the assessment of its protective capabilities. Utilizing the ATT&CK® framework, Trend Micro’s flagship platform, Trend Vision One™, demonstrated remarkable agility by swiftly identifying all 19 critical stages of a simulated attack and effectively thwarting 100% of malicious activities across 13 different attack phases.

Kevin Simzer, the Chief Operating Officer of Trend Micro, commented on this achievement, stating, “Trend Vision One exhibited exceptional protection and prevention capabilities, consistently intercepting initial attack steps in each phase. This underscores the effectiveness of our platform-based approach in mitigating real-world cyber risks and safeguarding diverse customer environments. It serves as a testament to why our strategy is so impactful.”

MITRE Engenuity’s ATT&CK® Evaluations assess a solution’s ability to detect targeted attacks that mimic the behaviors of known adversaries, closely resembling genuine real-world threats.

In the evaluation conducted in March 2023, the focus was on the Russian advanced persistent threat (APT) group known as Turla, which is notorious for its sophisticated malware and its ability to remain undetected for extended durations. Trend Vision One™ consistently proved its mettle by repelling all Turla attack attempts across every simulated scenario, guaranteeing the security of customer environments against breaches. This proactive stance is reinforced by a 100% success rate in alerting for all critical steps in the attack chain.

Trend Micro’s performance also stood out for its extensive detection coverage across the MITRE ATT&CK Matrix. It achieved 100% analytics coverage for all necessary steps in alerting, responding to, and containing an attack, effectively reducing the volume of alerts and minimizing fatigue. This enhanced the prioritization of critical tasks and elevated the overall analyst experience. The platform excelled particularly in delivering high-fidelity detection alerts in early and mid-chain tactics, with a strong focus on safeguarding against unauthorized credential access.

Trend Vision One™ is at the forefront of the industry in terms of EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response), XDR (Extended Detection and Response), and cyber risk management. By halting the initial phases of an attack, it adds substantial value to security and Security Operations Center (SOC) teams by:

  • Reducing the escalation to incident response cycles.
  • Diminishing the number of detection alerts that require analysis and response.
  • Extending the time available for proactive security management efforts.
