AV-Comparatives Releases Results of LSASS Credential Dumping Certification Test

AV-Comparatives, a globally trusted authority in evaluating endpoint security solutions, has unveiled the results of its LSASS Credential Dumping Test.

In today's evolving threat landscape, protecting against attacks on the LSASS process is paramount for cybersecurity vendors.”
— Andreas Clementi, founder and CEO, AV-Comparatives

INNSBRUCK, TYROL, AUSTRIA, May 23, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSASS) is a process in Microsoft Windows operating systems that is responsible for enforcing the security policy on the systems. The LSASS process is a prime target for attackers due to its sensitivity and importance in Windows security. While Windows offers built-in hardening options such as Protected Process Light (PPL) to safeguard against unauthorised access to lsass.exe, additional protection measures are essential. The AV-Comparatives LSASS Protection Test is a critical assessment to ensure consumers can trust products and remain uncompromised against attacks targeting the LSASS process.

The detailed findings and insights into the testing methodology are now available on the official AV-Comparatives website.

AV-Comparatives conducts advanced focus offensive security tests, providing vendors with the opportunity to obtain certification in specific protection aspects. In addition to the comprehensive report published on the AV-Comparatives website, participating vendors receive technical data about the test-cases. This valuable information, coupled with detailed feedback on product performance against the used attacks, not only empowers vendors to enhance and fortify their security solutions but also adds significant value to the evaluation process.
