As one of the only EU-based Cyber Security companies, NVISO successfully participated in a first-of-its-kind, MITRE-led, evaluation of Managed Security Services (MSS).

The inaugural MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK® Evaluations for Managed Security Services ran in June 2022 and its results have been published today. NVISO performed excellently in the evaluation, demonstrating services that are at or above the level of traditional titans of the industry.

During this evaluation, NVISO was tested on its ability to detect and report advanced attacks that were executed by the MITRE team.

“The tests were simulating real-life scenarios in which only detection and reporting was evaluated – we were not allowed to block or respond to any attacks”, says Erik Van Buggenhout, Partner, responsible for Managed Security Services at NVISO. A test environment was set up in which participants would deploy their tools and detection services.

“NVISO chose to deploy Palo Alto’s Cortex XDR – an XDR tool that integrates seamlessly into our service and client environments. The combination of XDR with our NITRO automation platform and NVISO world-class expertise ensures that our Managed Detection and Response service is top notch and future-proof. While we have always believed in our own strategy, we are excited and proud to receive MITRE’s external and independent validation of the outstanding quality of our services.”, Erik says.

NVISO was one of the only EU-based Cyber Security companies participating in this elite evaluation. “NVISO is a true European Cyber Security company, which is reflected well in its mission: to safeguard the foundations of European society from cyber attacks”, says Maxim Deweerdt, head of MSS presales at NVISO.

NVISO was founded in 2013 in Belgium, has since offered services to large and mid-sized customers in almost 20 countries, mostly in Europe. NVISO has offices in Brussels, Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna and Athens. “The way NVISO approaches Managed Detection and Response is typical for our company: we challenge the status-quo and provide an innovative approach driven by our expertise and long experience in cyber defense”, Maxim says, “This evaluation has highlighted and validated our approach, and confirms the positive feedback we receive from customers”.

NVISO approved as APT Response Service Provider

13 May 2022 at 10:02

NVISO is proud to announce that it has successfully qualified as an APT Response service provider and is now recommended on the website of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).  

Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) are typically described as attack campaigns in which highly skilled, often state-sponsored, intruders orchestrate targeted, long-term attacks. Due to their complex nature, these types of attacks pose a serious threat to any company or organisation.  

The main purpose of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) is to provide advice and support to operators of critical infrastructure and recommend qualified incident response service providers that comply  with their strict quality requirements. 

It is with great pride that we can now confirm that NVISO has passed the rigorous BSI assessment and we are thus listed as a recommended APT Response service provider.  

To attain the coveted BSI recommendation, we had to demonstrate the quality of the service offered by NVISO.  

This included amongst others:  

  • 24×7 readiness and availability of the incident response team  
  • An ISO27001 certification covering the entire organisation  
  • The ability to perform malware analysis and forensics (on hosts and on the network) 
  • Our experts spent multiple hours in interview sessions where they showcased their experience and expertise in dealing with cyber threats.  

Already a European cyber security powerhouse employing a variety of world-class experts (e.g. SANS Instructors, SANS Authors and forensic tool developers), this new recognition further highlights NVISO’s position as a leading European player that can deliver world-class cyber security services.  

Next to our incident response services, NVISO can also help you improve your overall cyber security posture before an incident happens. Our services span a variety of security consulting and managed security services.
