AV-Comparatives Releases Factsheet with Enterprise Real-World and Malware Protection Test Results for Q3 2022 

Leading antivirus testing lab releases factsheet with latest test results for its ongoing Enterprise Main-Test Series, comprising Real-World Protection and Malware Protection Tests for August and September 2022.  

As part of its ongoing Enterprise Main-Test Series, AV-Comparatives has just released the latest test results for its Real-World Protection and Malware Protection Tests for August and September 2022. The Austrian antivirus testing lab conducts systematic testing of security software solutions to protect businesses against cybercrime. Certification by AV-Comparatives is considered to be a globally accepted yardstick for the approval of security-software performance.    

The tested products were: Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with Advanced Security pack; Avast Ultimate Business Security; Bitdefender GravityZone Elite; Cisco Secure Endpoint Essentials; CrowdStrike Falcon Pro; Cybereason Enterprise; Elastic Security; ESET PROTECT Entry with ESET PROTECT Cloud; G Data Endpoint Protection Business; K7 On-Premises Enterprise Security Advanced; Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business Select with KSC; Malwarebytes EDR; Microsoft Defender Antivirus with Microsoft Endpoint Manager; Sophos Intercept X Advanced; Trellix FireEye Endpoint Security; VIPRE Endpoint Protection Cloud; WatchGuard Endpoint Protection Plus on Aether. 

The Real-World Protection Test results released by AV-Comparatives are based on 316 live test cases including working exploits and URLs pointing directly to malware. The test cases used cover a wide range of current malicious sites, highlighting the quality of protection offered by various products. This test by AV-Comparatives provides detailed insights into the capabilities of 18 popular enterprise security products. The results of the False-Positives Test are also available in the factsheet. The full results, covering four months of ongoing testing, will be published in December. 

AV-Comparatives has also released the results of its Malware Protection Test for enterprise security solutions. The products were evaluated to assess their ability to protect a system against infection by malicious files before, during or after execution. In addition to detection rates, the test also examines a product’s ability to prevent a malicious program from making any changes to the system. The test set used for this test consisted of 1,005 malware samples. To ensure that the tested programs do not protect the system at the expense of high false-alarm rates, a false-positives test is also run for the Malware Protection Test. 

Like all of AV-Comparatives’ public test reports, the factsheet can be downloaded free of charge and without registration from the institute’s website.
