Statement from Test Lab

“October-December 2019 – 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.”

“I did not receive info that the dispute phase started.”

Response from test lab: SE Labs provide a free dispute process and provides relevant data on request from any vendor in the test. Vendors are notified about the start of the dispute process by AMTSO as part of the Standard certification process and need to take the initiative to request the dispute data. In this case, as soon as SE Labs became aware that Avast wanted the data, after the disputes deadline had passed, the data was provided.
