Scoring Email Security Services

How seriously do you take the email threat?

Cyber criminals often use email as a way to start an attack. According to many sources email is by far the most common way that attackers try to gain access to your business and personal systems.

The UK government’s Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2022 reported that email phishing alone accounts for 83% of attacks.

Email cyber threat

But we all know that, don’t we? Because organisations, large and small, receive thousands of general and more targeted email threats every year.

Choose the best security product

By understanding the rules of security testing.

choose the best security product

The reports below contain security testing results. You can compare the performance of a variety of products that claim to protect you against online threats. This, in theory, will help individuals and businesses choose the best security product.

AMTSO-Compliant Test

Rules of engagement

But these are free reports. How can you trust that the high-scoring vendors didn’t just pay for their ranking? Do you suspect that some low-scoring vendors dropped out of the report? Or asked to be retested until they scored better?

What are the rules behind the scenes in security testing?

Ransomware Protection Tested

Red screens means red faces. Prevent, don’t pay!

Ransomware Protection Tested

Ransomware is causing all the rage right now. That’s why we’ve tested products that offer protection from ransomware.

AMTSO-Compliant Test

It’s the type of threat that gets attention because a successful attack is extremely visible (the attacker needs you to know it’s worked, or you won’t pay!) Also, there is a direct and substantial cost attached to it. In addition to paying security specialists to help, there’s a fat ransom demand sitting on your screen.

Ransomware isn’t subtle

While much hacking is subtle, stealing information silently, ransomware is in your face. It stops businesses in their tracks. It gets the attention of the finance directors. It provides powerful ammunition to security teams arguing for more resources. And, of course, it makes headlines.

NDR – Now Done Realistically

SE Labs launches first public Network Detection and Response test

Network Detection and Response

SE Labs tested VMware NSX Network Detection and Response against a range of hacking attacks designed to compromise systems and penetrate target networks in the same way as criminals and other attackers breach systems and networks.

Full attack chain test in the datacentre

By running the most realistic set of attacks possible we put NDR products to a significant challenge. Can they detect real attacks in real-time, often using unique scripts and malware? If you want to know more about advanced persistent threats on the network please read past the initial graphs in this report and dig into the detail.

Endpoint protection needs your attention

How to get out more than you put in

Endpoint protection needs your attention

Technology gives us tools to achieve sometimes amazing things. But no matter how advanced, it usually requires humans to make an effort.

AMTSO-Compliant Test

We’ve all heard the terms, “fire and forget” or “plug and play” but these are usually marketing dreams. In security, as with any other area, you can buy tools, but you need to understand how to use them if you are going to succeed.
