Security Value Map
Empirical data from individual Test Reports and Comparative Reports is used to create NSS Labs’ unique Security Value Map™ (SVM). The SVM illustrates the relative value of security investments by mapping Security Effectiveness against Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) per Protected Mbps for tested product configurations.
Security Value Map Comparative Report
The Security Value Map™ (SVM) Comparative Report provides an aggregated view of the detailed findings from this NSS Labs group test. Enterprise security decision makers can use the report to determine the relative value of security investments.
Breach Detection Systems Comparative Report
The Breach Detection Systems (BDS) Comparative Report provides detailed comparisons across all tested products in the areas of security effectiveness, total cost of ownership (TCO), and performance. Security effectiveness scores take into account time-to-detect metrics, detection rate, ant-evasion capabilities, and stability and reliability. The NSS Labs TCO model assumes that enterprises that do not deploy BDS security, or that deploy a BDS security product with low and/or slow detection, will incur less security savings, since additional operational overhead will be required to remediate both attempted and successful breaches.
Test Reports provide detailed analysis on each product tested. They help enterprise security teams understand a product’s features as well as its limitations and can be used to shortlist products for further evaluation and proof-of concept testing. Data from these reports is used in the NSS Labs Comparative Reports.
