New types of threats require new kinds of testing. Therefore, we are introducing a new test, where we use new and tailor-made attacks to compromise a victim. This “Enhanced Real-World Test” will be part of our Public Main Test Series of 2019, in both Consumer and Enterprise Test Series.
Advanced Endpoint Protection Test
AV-Comparatives has published the findings of an Advanced Endpoint Protection Test, consisting of the following component tests:
- PowerShell-based file-less attacks and file-based exploits test, including false alarm test
- Proactive Protection Test, including false alarm test
- Real-World Protection Test, including false alarm test
- Ransomware test
The tests were performed between November 2017 and January 2018. The primary goal was to compare the automatic prevention and detection capabilities of different endpoint protection solutions. The test was commissioned by Bitdefender. Products by the following vendors were tested (please note that the results apply only to the specific program versions and settings that are described in the report): Bitdefender, Carbon Black, CrowdStrike, Cylance, Kaspersky Lab, McAfee, SentinelOne, Sophos and Symantec.
