Why is vendor/product XY not included in the test?

We would be happy to test all and every IT-security product which is available on the market. Unfortunately, we do not have the capacity to test them all. Therefore we need to pick them by criteria such as:
  • technical capabilities
  • marketshare
  • request of readers (according to the security survey we do each year)
  • lab capacity/resources
  • and more

There exist several hundreds (maybe thousands worldwide, if we would count every rebranded security software or other various products providing some form of security). Here we have mentioned some of them:

We usually include around 15-20 of the most well-known AV products in our public main test-series (consumer & enterprise). Some other can be found in our single product tests, several more are getting tested only internally.
