Blue Hexagon, a deep learning innovator in cyberthreat protection, has earned a perfect score in independent testing conducted by PCSL IT Consulting Institute. The Blue Hexagon deep learning-powered network threat protection platform was tested against one of the largest corpus of malware across a wide variety of threat families, (including a comprehensive volume of zero-days from global threat campaigns), and a large set of benign files and applications.
PCSL defined an AI testing framework to evaluate Blue Hexagon against three key network threat detection metrics:
• Threat detection efficacy: detection rates across a wide range of threat categories, and threat samples in various file types and sizes, ensure detection encompasses the varied sophistication of threats launched by attackers today.
• False positive rate: accuracy of threat detection is critical as false positives can have a significant impact on security operations and manpower, distracting companies from dealing with legitimate security alerts.
• Threat detection speed: network threat detection speed, including network processing and AI inference times, is important to ensure that products can keep up with the speed of compromise challenging the industry today.
The testing framework was specifically designed to incorporate threats in executables, MS Office documents, and PDFs across a wide variety of threat categories, including financial malware, cryptominers, ransomware, trojans/spyware, and more. The test also included a large volume of benign consumer applications, enterprise applications, OEM files and more, to test Blue Hexagon’s false positive rates.
