Instead of taking the word of “The Corporate Internet” reviews, or reviews given by popular sites that are ill prepared to test a batch file why not go to the horses mouth, do a little reading, and decide for yourself when it comes to your online security and other software decisions. I just happen to have a few such independent testing companies (outside of my own) that I would be glad to share. If you are already familiar with them, then please ignore this. However most people are not aware accurate, thorough, and ongoing testing software reports are out there to read at your whim. Imagine consumers making an informed decision – Every Corporations Nightmare.
Security Focused Testing Companies
About SE Labs
SE Labs aims to improve information technology security by assessing products and services designed to detect attacks, protect against intrusions or both. We test a range of solutions including endpoint software, network appliances and cloud services. Our tests are technically accurate and relevant, and are conducted with the utmost integrity.
The company’s founder is Simon Edwards, ex-Technical Director of security testing organisation Dennis Technology Labs and Chairman of the Board of the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO). He has been testing anti-malware and other security products since 1995 and published results for the first ‘real-world’ anti-malware test, which involved full end-to-end threat testing using internet-connected endpoints, inclusion of web-based exploits and full execution of malware.
Constantly innovating, SE Labs has developed next-generation testing to prove the abilities of ‘next-generation’ security products using a comprehensive, full-stack approach to security assessment powered by true and detailed threat intelligence. Our end-to-end, targeted attack detection, protection and response testing is world class and capable of evaluating endpoint, appliance and cloud-based products and services.
About AV Comparatives
AV-Comparatives is an independent organization offering systematic testing that checks whether security software, such as PC/Mac-based antivirus products and mobile security solutions, lives up to its promises. Using one of the largest sample collections worldwide, it creates a real-world environment for truly accurate testing. AV-Comparatives offers freely accessible results to individuals, news organizations and scientific institutions. Certification by AV-Comparatives provides an official seal of approval for software performance which is globally recognized.
Currently, AV-Comparatives’ Real-World Protection Test is the most comprehensive and complex test available when it comes to evaluating the real-life protection capabilities of antivirus software. Put simply, the test framework replicates the scenario of an everyday user in an everyday online environment – the typical situation that most of us experience when using a computer with an Internet connection.
AV-Comparatives works closely with several academic institutions, especially the University of Innsbruck’s Department of Computer Science, to provide scientific testing methods.
