Unknown Threats Continuously Undetected for State Government Until They Switched to ZeroDwell Containment

The Challenge

This State Government had been experiencing challenges with its previous in-house antivirus solution from the industry’s largest provider. Malware related infections were common and manageability was daunting. 

This organization has over 25,000 endpoints, with a mix of Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems. The Chief Information Security Officer at this State Government’s Department of Technology Services began exploring vendors for a next-generation solution that had to meet a number of criteria such as centralized cloud-based management and layered security capabilities - such as AV, FW, HIPS, behavior analytics, AI & human expert file verdicting. Xcitium’s patented ZeroDwell Containment Technology was a plus - since it provides active breach protection of unknown/ undetectable malicious files. The State Government had been a satisfied Xcitium CA client for many years prior to switching to Xcitium Advanced solution.

“It is not very often that I have felt this positive about a collaborative effort with a partnered vendor and their level of commitment to us and making our work successful.” - State Government Official, Department of Technology Services.

The Solution

This State Government chose Xcitium to migrate their cybersecurity defense and Endpoint Protection to a cloud-based solution which allowed for central management across the state -giving executives total visibility across the organization and the ability to delegate from the top. Additionally, this enabled departments to manage their own environment and create groups within groups for more robust access and policy control at all levels. ZeroDwell Containment Technology was included to prevent malware infection from unknown/ undetectable files, without impacting user productivity. Additional benefits to the Xcitium installation included single console patch management, remote management and monitoring, device control, layered endpoint security, and cyber inventory controls. To this day, this organization has experienced zero breaches since deploying Xcitium.


Xcitium, formerly known as Comodo Security Solutions, is used by more than 3,000 organizational customers & partners around the globe. Founded with one simple goal – to put an end to cyber breaches. Xcitium’s patented ‘ZeroDwell Containment’ technology uses Kernel API Virtualization to isolate and remove threats like zero-day malware & ransomware before they cause any damage. ZeroDwell Containment is the cornerstone of Xcitium’s endpoint suite which includes Xcitium Essentials, Xcitium Advanced, endpoint detection & response (EDR), Xcitium Managed MDR and Xcitium Complete M(X)DR.
