AV-Comparatives Awards 2020 for Cisco
Cisco participated successfully in AV-Comparatives’ Business Tests of 2020. The tests covered different protection scenarios, system performance, false positives, and endpoint prevention and response capabilities.
Cisco AMP for Endpoints includes investigative features to help admins understand advanced threats. These include a detailed timeline of the stages of an attack, along with automated threat-response capabilities. Reviewers noted that the well-designed interface allows easy access to a wide range of functionality.
AV-Comparatives’ tests are very carefully designed and executed to thoroughly and realistically simulate scenarios that face users in real life. Consequently, a certification by AV-Comparatives is a guarantee of an effective and reliable product. An “Approved Product” award means that the software has been rigorously checked to ensure that it will perform its intended task competently. It is an industry-recognised standard of quality.
Additional awards for consumer products indicate which programs have achieved best-in-class status. This means that users can easily find products that not only meet but also exceed industry standards.
AV-Comparatives’ tests have multiple aspects, to represent the different requirements of IT security solutions. Further awards highlight the effectiveness of individual programs in different protection scenarios, low false positives, and low impact on system performance. Users can thus see which programs score highly in the categories that matter most to them.
