AV-Comparatives Business Security Test 2023 (March – June)

Disclaimer
  1. This test shows how an antivirus behaves with certain threats, in a specific environment and under certain conditions.
    We encourage you to compare these results with others and take informed decisions on what security products to use.
    Before buying an antivirus you should consider factors such as price, ease of use, compatibility, and support. Installing a free trial version allows an antivirus to be tested in everyday use before purchase.

sure but 16 decide to be tested, "curious" is why Di & CP chose not to participate. Help them, hurt them, or non-issue...
The AV-Comparatives business test, like many other tests of theirs, is a joke. I don’t know why they still waste time struggling to perform tests instead of making their way to the local supermarket and checking-out purchases there. They will be more successful as cashiers.

The purpose of any EDR is to provide visibility. For visibility there are other tests such as this:
Note that this test does not compare EDRs to one another and it does not test for false positives.

I suggest anyone not to waste time with AVC.

Funny that in that test Checkpoint did worse than Bitdefender but only by 1 detection which was a encrypted C&C connection.

I got that... surprise for me goes both ways, curious why the 16 business enterprise who tested, chose AVC.
