Test Title: SE Labs Q2 2020 Endpoint Protection: Enterprise, Small Business, and Consumer
AMTSO Test ID: AMTSO-LS1-TP023

  • Statement from Test Lab:

    “Q2 2020 – Endpoint Protection Enterprise, Small Business, and Consumer

    SE Labs tests a variety of endpoint security products from a range of well-known vendors in an effort to judge which were the most effective. Each enterprise, small business, or consumer class product are exposed to the same threats, which are a mixture of targeted attacks using well-established techniques, public email, and web-based threats that are known or found to be live on the internet at the time of the test. The Test Reports indicate how effectively the products were at detecting and/or protecting against those threats in real time.”

      Commentary (Phase 1): COMMENTARY SUBMITTED as follows:

      “I am satisfied with the Test Plan and Notification process, but I would like to add a few comments:
      1) p.1 – it is written Q1 instead of Q2.
      2) All pages contain a signature at the bottom of the page “©Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization, Inc., 2017-2019. All rights reserved.” – why is it limited with 2019 year instead of 2020?
      3) a quick note: p.4 – why is it mentioned Zone Alarm instead of Check Point at a section Vendor in the table Consumer Products?
