AV-Comparatives is an independent lab that tests the protection and performance capabilities of leading security providers for business users. This report combines the results of several tests over the first half of 2018 to provide a comprehensive picture of how well each security platform protects against malware, risky web browsing and device performance degradations.
“Endgame offers an effective product for protecting enterprises from real-world cyber threats, and we are pleased to see that they did well,” said Andreas Clementi, founder and chief executive officer at AV-Comparatives. ”In large enterprises, success may depend not just on identifying and stopping malware, but also on understanding the larger context of the attack.
To earn the Approved Business Product Award, the tested products must score at least 90 percent in the Malware Protection Test and at least 90 percent in the overall Real-World Protection Test over the course of four months with zero false alarms on common business software.
