Bitdefender a Top Overall Performer in Fourth Round of MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK Enterprise Evaluations


Bitdefender achieved among the top scores of the 30 participating cybersecurity vendors in MITRE Engenuity’s recent independent ATT&CK Evaluations for Enterprise cybersecurity solutions. Bitdefender scored 97 percent in overall analytics insights and 95 percent in technique-level descriptions, the most in-depth detection metric identifying specific steps of how attackers breached the environment and moved laterally.

“This achievement, in identifying the precise techniques adversaries use to move through networks, validates Bitdefender’s position as an industry leader in threat prevention and detection technology,” said Dragos Gavrilut, director of cyber threat intelligence at Bitdefender. “Excelling in these capabilities is vital for enterprises to counter the sophisticated multi-stage attacks carried out by today’s cybercriminal groups and nation-state actors. Independent tests like the MITRE ATT&CK Evaluations are essential for helping organizations evaluate the effectiveness of cybersecurity technologies against complex attacks.”

The 2022 ATT&CK Evaluations tested cybersecurity vendors for their ability to detect techniques and tactics used by Wizard Spider and Sandworm, two advanced threat groups that employ ransomware and wiper malware targeting businesses and government organizations worldwide. Vendor participants were evaluated using emulations of the Data Encrypted For Impact technique used by Wizard Spider to deploy ransomware including Ryuk and Sandworm to encrypt and destroy data with their NotPetya malware. Each participant was evaluated based on detection rates across 19 total steps and 109 sub-steps in the framework’s attack kill chain from initial compromise through final stage of execution.

MITRE Engenuity evaluated Bitdefender GravityZone Ultra, the company’s unified security platform incorporating endpoint protection (EPP) and endpoint detection and response (EDR) including cross-endpoint threat correlation and advanced risk analytics. The platform delivers deep context to detections and offers a direct path to Bitdefender managed detection and response (MDR) services.
