Email security: Is it any good against hackers?

World’s first in-depth, public test of security services vs. targeted attacks.

This email security test report is the product of two years of advanced threat research. We have worked with the security companies themselves and with their customers. We have monitored what the bad guys have been doing and identified and replicated real-world email threats that affect everyone generally, and also specific types of businesses.

There is no report like this anywhere in the public domain. We are extremely proud to present the results here.

SE Labs vs. COVID-19

The current global health crisis will inevitably affect everyone's productivity in the coming months. We, at SE Labs, are committed to working through the challenges that face us all but we want to be realistic about how effective we are going to be at delivering our testing programmes, the feedback processes and report publications over the next six months.

We will not compromise on the quality of the work, please be assured of that. However, we face imminent and major disruption and it is unlikely that we will be able to publish reports at our usual and reliable frequency.
