Advanced endpoint protection (AEP) products focus on preventing cybercriminals from ever reaching or executing on the endpoint. These products employ sophisticated techniques such as machine learning, pattern recognition, or predictive algorithms to detect and block malware and to contain suspicious activities. Additionally, AEP products monitor processes running on endpoints, detect any communication with potentially malicious hosts, and conduct audits of file systems and registries. To enhance the user experience, AEP products typically automate threat remediation policies as well as provide containment capabilities to protect the endpoint.
NSS Labs' Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Group Test evaluates market-leading AEP products on security effectiveness, secure communication, threat event reporting, and total cost of ownership (TCO). The AEP Group Test provides individual Test Reports and Comparative Reports that enable enterprises to make informed decisions to evolve and rationalize their cyber risk programs.
Individual Test Reports
Test Reports provide detailed analysis for each product tested. Data from these reports is used in NSS' Comparative Reports.
Test Reports enable enterprise security teams to understand the impact of features and limitations across different products. These reports are used to shortlist products for further evaluation and proof-of concept testing.
