A new ratings system has been introduced for the 2020 Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test. Product ratings range from ‘AAA’ – ‘D.’
The new rating system considers the following capabilities: Management, False Positive Rate, Resistance to Evasion, Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and Block Rate, which includes Email Malware, HTTP Malware, Drive-by Exploits, Social Exploits, and Handcrafted (targeted) Attacks. NSS Labs used multiple commercial, open-source, and proprietary tools to employ attack methods currently being used by cybercriminals and other threat actors.
