The laboratory is a strategic asset for your organization. Laboratory data comprises the majority of medical records and is critical for accurate diagnoses. Physicians depend on reliable laboratory result data to deliver optimal care. Efficiency is critical for laboratory success; it enables your lab to ensure patient safety, reduce operating costs and increase revenue. STARLIMS offers clinical laboratories a powerful solution suite, which includes configurable tools to manage complex testing workflows, enforce rules-based actions, promptly format and deliver laboratory results to clinicians by their preferred method, track and route bar-coded specimens within the lab and across the network for more efficiency, as well as distribute and manage bio specimen inventories.
NSS Labs performed an independent test of the McAfee Endpoint Security v10.5 product. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test Methodology v1.0, which is available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for McAfees inclusion.
This report provides detailed information about this product and its security effectiveness. Additional comparative information is available at www.nsslabs.com.

As part of the initial AEP test setup, products were configured in a deployment mode typical to enterprises. As
such, products were configured to mimic an enterprise environment by applying typical applications such as
exclusion policies and tuning requirements. All product-based configurations are reviewed, validated, and
approved by NSS prior to the test. Every effort is made to ensure optimal security effectiveness, as would be the

During NSS Labs 2018 Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Group Test, CylancePROTECT® and CylanceOPTICS v2.0.1450 failed to initiate part of the CylanceOPTICS engine, which primarily impacted the exploit and blended threats test categories. This affected the Cylance® position on the Security Value Map (SVM). After working closely with NSS, Cylance rolled out a new version of its software (v2.2.1011) for CylanceOPTICS. Cylance submitted this updated product for follow-on testing using the AEP Test Methodology v2.0, the same methodology used in the AEP Group Test. The product improved its Block Rate by 6.9% and its Additional Detection Rate by 0.2%. Learn more about the results in the NSS Labs testing report.

Some SAP systems can take up to 10 days to complete a SAP system copy. Thats 10 days of unproductive time. Why? SAP does not provide the necessary tools out-of-the-box to automate and handle the process efficiently. This means you must use highly skilled SAP BASIS staff to manage the process. Manual steps, along with hundreds of configuration settings, can take days to completeand like many organizations, you have also experienced too many delays, causing non-production systems to be unavailable, which stalls development, testing and training activities.
So youve concluded your SAP system copy process is hindering innovation and productivity. Youre considering automating the process to ensure system copies are available for all environments on time, every time.
What are the key capabilities you actually need to address SAP system copy inefficiency once and for all?
Detecting and preventing errors that threaten patient safety is a closed-loop process that begins at the point of care, extends to independent laboratories, and then back to the caregiver. Sample identification and results reporting errors can lead to misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment with deadly consequences. A 2006 Wall Street Journal article reported that while malpractice claims for pathology errors are relatively low, they are the second most costly. In addition to creating a serious risk to patient safety, sample misidentification creates significant financial implications. Redraws, retesting and additional treatment that result from sample errors cost the healthcare industry an estimated
$200 million to $400 million per year.
In addition to high reliability and availability, enterprise mission critical applications, data centers operating 24x7, and data analysis platforms all demand powerful data processing capabilities and stability.
