Test Title: MRG Effitas Q2 2020 360 Android Assessment and Certification
AMTSO Test ID: AMTSO-LS1-TP024

  • Statement from Test Lab:

    “A first-of-its-kind test that covers all angles, our pioneering 360 Android Assessment and Certification Test targets the key threats faced by internet users. In each test case we employ the full spectrum of Early Life Malware.
    MRG Effitas has a core focus on efficacy assessments in the anti-financial fraud space, but we also publish more traditional “Real World” detection tests. Our Android test suite provides a comprehensive yet realistic test set for any Android AV on the market to make sure that its protection capabilities are sufficient for security conscious real-life users.
    This Programme is called a “360 Android Assessment and Certification” since it deals with the full spectrum of malware instead of just financial malware. In all 360 Assessments, trojans, backdoors, ransomware, financial malware and “other” malware are used.”
