Consumer Malware Protection Test March 2020
We released our Consumer Malware Protection Test. Any samples that have not been detected e.g. on-access are executed on the test system. A false alarm test is also included. While in the Real-World Protection Test the vector is the web, in the Malware Protection Test the vectors can be e.g. network drives, USB or cover scenarios where the malware is already on the disk.

AV-Comparatives Introduces Enterprise-Class EDR-Test @RSA2020
As the number and complexity of advanced persistent threats increase, so does the importance of endpoint detection and response systems. AV-Comparatives has developed a comprehensive methodology for testing enterprise-class EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) systems, with tests commencing mid-Q2 2020, and results being published around the end of Q3 2020. AV-Comparatives have been working closely with the IT security teams, security practitioners and security operation centre (SOC) personnel of typical enterprises that already employ EDR systems or are planning to do so in the future.
