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.
