INNSBRUCK, TYROL, AUSTRIA, July 13, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The first half-year report of AV-Comparatives’ 2023 Enterprise main-test series containing a Real-World Protection, Malware Protection and Performance Test has been released. Product reviews are also included in the report, which can be found here:
With the rapidly evolving threat landscape, antivirus vendors face new and emerging challenges. The test report showcases how security products have adapted and enhanced their protection capabilities over the years.
To be certified in July 2023 as an ‘Approved Business Product’ by AV-Comparatives, the tested products must score at least 90% in the Malware Protection Test, with zero false alarms on common business software, a rate below ‘Remarkably High’ for false positives on non-business files and must score at least 90% in the overall Real-World Protection Test over the course of four months, with less than fifty false alarms on clean software/websites.
The test series evaluated endpoint security solutions from 16 leading vendors serving enterprise and SMB sectors. The vendors included are: Avast, Bitdefender, CISCO, CrowdStrike, Cybereason, Elastic, ESET, G Data, K7, Kaspersky, Microsoft, Sophos, Trellix, VIPRE, VMware, and WatchGuard.
Real-World Protection Test:
This long-term test extends over four months and measures the ability of the endpoint protection software to defend against Internet-based threats.
Malware Protection Test:
This test evaluates the ability of the tested products to detect and handle malicious programs that may be encountered on company systems, such as on the local area network or external drives.
The performance test ensures that the tested products do not compromise system speed in favour of providing protection.
False Positives Test:
A False Positives Test is conducted for each protection test to verify that the endpoint protection software does not generate a significant number of false alarms, which can be disruptive in business networks.
The report also includes product descriptions with the key features of each tested solution.
Overall, AV-Comparatives’ July Business Security Test 2023 report provides IT managers and CISOs with a detailed picture of the strengths and weaknesses of the tested products, allowing them to make informed decisions on which ones might be appropriate for their specific needs.
The next awards will be given to qualifying December 2023 for August-November tests. Like all AV-Comparatives’ public test reports, the Enterprise & Business Endpoint Security Report is available universally and for free on https://www.av-comparatives.org
