Nov 15, 2023 – AhnLab, a leader in cybersecurity, today announced that
it has completed this year’s MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK® Evaluations Round 5
with AhnLab EPP and AhnLab EDR, underscoring their competence to detect and
respond to sophisticated cyber threat techniques.
In the evaluation
emulating the threat group Turla with a multi-phased
intelligence-collection operation, AhnLab achieved remarkable results as
l AhnLab EPP - Endpoint
Protection Platform: It blocked 12 out of 13 steps of the protection
evaluation, which demonstrates its global-level capability to respond to
real-world threat scenarios.
l AhnLab EDR - Endpoint
Detection and Response: It detected multiple advanced threat techniques of
adversaries within the detection part of this evaluation while presenting
detailed evidence as well as a comprehensive context.
Furthermore, AhnLab, as
the only Korean company to participate in this evaluation for three consecutive
rounds, established remarkable improvements that will ultimately benefit the
consistently improved its detection and prevention capabilities each year in
the MITRE ATT&CK® evaluations, which proves the company’s global
cybersecurity competencies”, said CTO of AhnLab, Sung-hak Jeon, adding, “It is
our goal to deliver cybersecurity solutions and services capable of analyzing
and responding to increasingly sophisticated threats through continuous
research and development.”
The fifth round of
ATT&CK Evaluations tested the capacity of 29 cybersecurity vendors to
detect and respond to emulated attack techniques of well-known threat actor
Turla. Turla is known for its novel and complex techniques such as targeted
intrusions as well as innovative stealth.
