Bad guys help SE Labs keep its testing up to date

Latest endpoint protection reports now online for enterprise, small business and home users.

For the first time in our endpoint protection tests we’ve seen a strong overall performance from both well-established anti-malware brands and newer entrants to the market.

Vendors such as FireEye and Crowdstrike are well-known and respected brands in the security world, but they are relatively new compared to Symantec, McAfee and even Microsoft. Microsoft has not promoted its anti-malware software until quite recently.

Strong protection in uncertain times

A hacker mentality is keeping (computer) virus testing on track.

Latest endpoint protection reports now online for enterprisesmall business and home users.

This is the first in our series of 2020 endpoint protection reports. And it is unique, for all the usual reasons but also a new one.

We would normally highlight the latest new threats that we’ve discovered on the internet and discuss how we test them against the security software you use in your business and at home in the most realistic ways possible. And we’ve done that. But these reports are different to any we’ve produced before, for another reason.

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.

Its endpoint detection and response offering, Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform, is one of the very first to face our brand new Breach Response Test and it detected all of the attacks, while protecting against the vast majority of them.

Beefing up security advice with facts

Latest reports now online for enterprise, small business and home users.
