San Francisco – 4 June, 2013 – AMTSO, The Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization announces a feature check solution for users of endpoint anti-malware security products allowing them to test whether their product is configured correctly to stop the many different types of attacks.

The AMTSO web site now hosts a number of easy to use tools to ensure that endpoint security products are configured to protect you from viruses, drive-by-downloads, potentially unwanted applications (PUA), phishing and cloud attacks. The tests can be accessed directly from the AMTSO home page..

Using newly developed tests and existing industry standards AMTSO is providing a single place for a user to test their configuration. The test pages are already supported by the following vendors:

Agnitum

AMTSO expect more vendors will add detection of these tools to their solutions in the future. If your product is not listed then please contact your vendor.

Dr. Richard Ford, President and CEO of AMTSO, said “Whether you are a consumer or business, understanding if your endpoint anti-malware security product is configured correctly, detecting then blocking different types of attacks, is an essential element to giving the user or administrator the knowledge and comfort that their security solution is working on multiple levels to protect their valuable digital assets.”
