Member Companies Comment on Taking First Steps Towards Forming Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO)
BILBAO, SPAIN – February 4, 2008 – ALWIL Software The testing of antimalware products has become a very complex task, which requires significant time, knowledge and financial and human resources. Even with such resources, often, the results of antimalware product tests can be questionable. We believe that AMTSO will be able to provide support and guidance to anti-malware product testers on a global basis, particularly through promulgation of testing methodology, experience and advice. We are inspired that so many antimalware companies have joined together through AMTSO to improve the quality of product testing in general, to ultimately provide consumers with accurate and reliable information. — Pavel Baudis, ALWIL Software
