Tech giant Microsoft has added CyRadar Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) to the list of security software recommended for use on Windows operating systems.
CyRadar EDR is a next-generation antivirus solution developed by CyRadar, a Vietnamese pioneer startup in developing network attack prevention and detection systems using big data analysis, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. As a member of the Microsoft Virus Initiative, which brings together antivirus software developers, CyRadar saw its anti-malware solution successfully pass all the six consecutive evaluations by Microsoft, achieving an accurate detection rate of 100 per cent and a false identification rate of zero per cent, according to a report in Tuoi Tre.
The software has also got through a performance test by Microsoft to confirm its superior performance and high compatibility with Windows operating systems. CyRadar EDR has not only been recognised by Microsoft to run smoothly on Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, but it has been awarded VB100 certification by the UK’s Virus Bulletin (VB).
Such certification is well-respected recognition in the anti-virus and malware communities due to the VB’s stringent testing requirements. CyRadar EDR is the only Southeast Asian software put on the recommended list of Microsoft, alongside the world’s leading cybersecurity service providers such as Kaspersky, Avira and TrendMicro, among others.
Such recommendation by Microsoft will help CyRadar get closer to international customers and improve the competitiveness of Vietnamese software products in the world, industry watchers said. Hanoi-based CyRadar has received investments from FPT Ventures, a venture capital arm of FPT Corporation, the largest ICT enterprise in Vietnam’s private sector.
CyRadar’s security solutions were awarded the ‘High-Quality Information Security Products’ title by the Vietnam Information Security Association in 2015 and 2017.
