AVLab.pl Overview of protection of EDR-XDR solutions. Simulation of offensive security tests including the visibility of attacks in telemetry.

  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.

Dear Community!

I invite you to read our latest EDR-XDR comparison and to comment. This is our first version of the EDR-XDR class product test, so any comments or suggestions for the next edition are welcome. Let's talk!

By the way. We are on the way to receive confirmation from AMTSO of compliance with the standards of our methodology. You still have to be patient for a while.

Why the telemetry is so important, and why it was a primary objective in the test?

We focused all our attention on observing the visibility of attacks along with telemetry (the so-called alert attack context). The lack of visibility or telemetry can mean for your company that the product did not work in a real-life situation or detected the threat too late.
