Encryption is a double-edged sword. While it protects sensitive data, it is also the perfect vehicle for threats. Regardless of your defenses, threats bypass security and go straight to the endpoint. Products are now incorporating SSL/TLS capabilities to prevent this from happening.
Only hands-on testing can validate if products perform as advertised. NSS Labs has the largest test harness in the industry and publishes the test methodologies as public information. This full disclosure allows vendors being tested and enterprise accounts interested in the results to understand how products are evaluated.
Many products are adding SSL/TLS support. As with all group tests, vendors are encouraged to participate at no cost to prevent potential bias and allow for objective analysis of results.
If you are a vendor and are interested in the next series of tests, or if there is a product you would like to see included, send us your request.
Every company is unique. Our cybersecurity analysts provide guidance when it’s time to choose your next security product. Whether you prefer a full-day session with your team or just a 1-hour call, our analysts are here to help.
