The Foundation for Research at NSS Labs is Our Testing Organization

We provide clients with “deep dives” into a product’s capabilities and limitations, revealing information that cannot be found anywhere else.

The NSS Labs Comparative Reports provide unique, multi-product views based upon security effectiveness, performance and total cost of ownership, shown graphically in the Security Value Map™. Each report is designed for a specific audience: IT security professionals, networking professionals, and financial decision makers.

This detailed comparative test data can be used to shortlist products for further evaluation and proof-of concept testing. Compare and understand the range of security effectiveness, evasion techniques, manageability, and throughput under real-world conditions. Discover the total cost of ownership over three years, including support contracts, maintenance, and upkeep time.

Test Reports offer an in-depth, stand-alone product analysis. These reports evaluate security effectiveness, performance, manageability, and stability at a deeper level than the typical group test report.

Expert and timely Analysis Briefs offer emerging information security trends, events, and technology issues. Get the insight, context and perspective needed to apply our research to specific issues in your organization.


In an era of rapidly evolving technology, you need actionable information. NSS Labs provides results.
