Test Title: SE Labs Q3 2020 Endpoint Protection: Enterprise, Small Business, and Consumer
AMTSO Test ID: AMTSO-LS1-TP026

  • Statement from Test Lab:

    “Q3 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.”
