ESG (Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.) Validates Efficacy and Performance of Emerging Threats’ ETPro™ Ruleset

Infosecurity Europe Booth #K77 – Emerging Threats, a world-leading provider of commercial and open source threat intelligence, today announced that ESG (Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc.) has validated the ETPro™ Ruleset as a cost-effective anti-malware product that provides actionable threat detection that reduces the risk of malware as it increases the operational efficiency of an organization’s security team. Also observed in the report are IQRisk™ Rep List and IQRisk Query that provide comprehensive threat intelligence based on over a decade of malicious threat data.

ESG’s findings concluded that the ETPro Ruleset was highly effective and delivered 4.7x the malware coverage than the open source ETOpen Ruleset over a 7-day test period. ESG tested the ETPro Ruleset on a Suricata v1.4 IDS engine and was validated with no packet loss running at a 9.6 Gbps scan rate. The report concluded that the breadth and depth of the Emerging Threats malware collection, analysis, and countermeasure processes can be used to increase the effectiveness of an IDS/IPS. The ETPro Ruleset is licensed globally to major OEM security appliance vendors as well as end-users, and is deployed in many G2000 organizations.

In addition, ESG also analyzed data from IQRisk Rep List and IQRisk Query. IQRisk Rep List is an actionable IP reputation list based on hundreds of thousands of malicious IP addresses and domains. IQRisk Query is a Web-based threat intelligence portal (also available as an API for integration into the SIEM) that provides easy access to the largest and most comprehensive threat intelligence database with up to 4 years of historical and contextual threat data searchable by IP address, domain, MD5 Hash and ETPro Ruleset SIDs. The report concluded that the automation and visualization provided by IQRisk Rep List and IQRisk Query can deliver actionable threat intelligence that helps security professionals make quick and informed decisions about their up-to-the-minute risk profile.

“Our testing concluded that Emerging Threats IQRisk Suite provides high levels of actionable threat intelligence that can increase malware detection effectiveness,” said Tony Palmer, Senior Lab Analyst ESG. “The ETPro Ruleset leverages the breadth and depth of the Emerging Threats collection, analysis and countermeasure processes to deliver cost-efficient, highly effective protection for IDS/IPS. We were impressed with Emerging Threats’ professionalism and the in-depth knowledge they have gained gathering data on malicious threats for over a decade to provide a more complete threat intelligence solution to their customers.”

The Emerging Threats product portfolio is highly scalable and designed to meet the exacting needs of customers. The company’s IQRisk Suite combines the ETPro Ruleset, IQRisk Rep List and IQRisk Query to provide a comprehensive actionable threat intelligence solution.

“We were excited to see the results of this independent testing on our threat intelligence products and solutions,” said Matt Jonkman, CTO Emerging Threats. “ESG provided expert third-party validation for our customers, prospects and for us internally so we can continue to concentrate on our core competency and provide the best actionable threat intelligence in the industry.”

The complete ESG Lab Validation report can be viewed on the Emerging Threats Resource Webpage and on the ESG Insights and Publications Webpage.
