NSS Labs Hits Back at FireEye ‘Untruths’
April 4th, 2014 | Author: Doug Woodburn

A war of words has erupted between FireEye Inc. and an independent testing house that questioned the vendor’s ability to catch malware.

NSS Labs handed FireEye (NASDAQ:FEYE) a “caution rating” in its first ever comparative analysis of breach detection systems (BDS) after its box scored a “below average” security effectiveness rating of 94.5.

All but one of the other vendors tested scored more than 98, with Fortinet Inc., Sourcefire Inc. and Trend Micro Inc. all scoring 99 or more.

NSS said its findings helps end users cut through the vendor marketing fluff in what is a “rapidly evolving” market.

In a forceful blog, FireEye product boss Manish Gupta moved immediately to discredit NSS Labs’ findings, claiming its methodology was “severely flawed.” The FireEye product the NSS used wasn’t even fully functional, used an old version of its software and did not have access to its threat intelligence, Gupta said.

But this was like a red rag to a bull for NSS Labs, whose founder Bob Walder last night responded with an equally robust blog designed to address “a number of untruths and misdirections” in Gupta’s missive.

Massive visualization uses Google’s Ngram Viewer – a remarkable big-data tool for tracking changes in culture though word usage in more than 4 billion books – to depict political, scientific, cultural, and philosophical themes. 
One of the most prominent patterns is the fall of “God” over the course of the 20th century, as well as the rise of utopias – a concept that has always enchanted us – in the aftermath of WWII.
