Endgame Joins Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO)
By participating with AMTSO, Endgame works to advance testing standards for next-gen security technologies
Arlington, VA - January 13, 2017 - Endgame, a leading endpoint security platform closing the protection gap against advanced attackers, announced today that it joined the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO). Participation in AMTSO furthers Endgame’s mission to develop scientifically objective and statistically significant third-party testing methodologies for next-gen security products.
“Endgame is honored to join AMTSO,” said Mark Dufresne, Director of Threat Research and Adversary Prevention at Endgame. “As advanced attacks become more pervasive, it’s critical that we establish objective testing methodologies that enable enterprises to make transparent buying decisions based on efficacy of solutions. We look forward to working closely with AMTSO and other vendors to shape industry standards for testing endpoint technologies.”
Millions of new malicious files appear each year, leading security vendors to create unrestrained marketing messages about the efficacy of their technologies to detect malware. Endgame is committed to raising the bar for other next-gen security vendors and is working with AMTSO to establish standards geared toward improving anti-malware testing.
“We are excited to welcome Endgame to AMTSO to collaborate with the growing number of security leaders committed to driving global standards for anti-malware testing,” said Dennis Batchelder, President and CEO of AMTSO.
Endgame’s membership in AMTSO comes after a recent announcement that its machine learning-powered malware detection, named MalwareScore™, achieved a 100% efficacy rating with no false positives during an independent evaluation by SE Labs, a member of AMTSO. Endgame views this test as a first step in a number of third party validation tests it will be conducting over 2017.

Endgame is a leading endpoint security platform that enables enterprises to close the protection gap against advanced attacks and detect and eliminate resident adversaries. Endgame transforms security operations teams and incident responders from crime scene investigators into hunters that prevent damage and loss, and dramatically reduce the time and cost associated with incident response and compromise assessment. Our IOC-independent platform covers the entire kill chain, leveraging machine learning and data science to uncover, in real-time, unique attacks that evade traditional defenses and respond precisely without disrupting normal business operations.
