This is the second half-year report of our Business Main-Test Series of 2020, containing the results of the Business Real-World Protection Test (August-November), Business Malware Protection Test (September), Business Performance Test (November), as well as the Product Reviews.
Information about additional third-party engines/signatures used by some of the products: Acronis, Cisco, Cybereason, FireEye, G Data and Vipre use the Bitdefender engine (in addition to their own protection features). VMware uses the Avira engine (in addition to their own protection features). G Data’s OutbreakShield is based on Cyren.
ESET Endpoint Protection Advanced Cloud has recently been renamed in ESET PROTECT Entry.
We congratulate the vendors who are participating in the Business Main-Test Series for having their business products publicly tested by an independent lab, showing their commitment to improving their products, being transparent to their customers and having confidence in their product quality.
The test series consists of three main parts:
The Real-World Protection Test mimics online malware attacks that a typical business user might encounter when surfing the Internet.
The Malware Protection Test considers a scenario in which the malware pre-exists on the disk or enters the test system via e.g. the local area network or removable device, rather than directly from the Internet.
In addition to each of the protection tests, a False-Positives Test is conducted, to check whether any products falsely identify legitimate software as harmful.
The Performance Test looks at the impact each product has on the system’s performance, i.e. how much it slows down normal use of the PC while performing certain tasks.
To complete the picture of each product’s capabilities, there is a user-interface review included in the report as well.
Some of the products in the test are clearly aimed at larger enterprises and organisations, while others are more applicable to smaller businesses. Please see each product’s review section for further details.
The second half-year report of our new Enterprise main-test series containing a Real-World Protection, Malware Protection and Performance Test has been released. Also product reviews are included. Read the report for details.
