NSS Labs is continuing its testing of anti-malware products and has started its first group test of endpoint protection products. We are testing the ability to protect against socially engineered malware downloaded from the web. This is a continuous live test that will measure time to protect, and average protection over time. All systems are connected to the live internet and subjected to actual downloads of actual, fresh malware every 4 hours over a period of 12 days.
Both consumer and corporate products are being evaluated. Stay tuned for more information or contact me with any questions (rmoy).
