Test labs design comprehensive, real-world testing approaches for
competing security solutions; Trend Micro leads in highest percentage
threat detection results
OTTAWA, June 21, 2011 /CNW/ - Trend Micro Incorporated today praised
multiple security testing vendors for advancing methodologies that show
how effective products are in protecting against the new and insidious
real-world threats. NSS Labs, AV-Test.org, and Dennis Technology Labs are among the labs that have fostered a greater understanding of the
new threats and vulnerabilities across the security industry, and
developed ingenious ways to test for them so that users can better
assess how well they are being protected.
"Lab security testing has become much more difficult since 2009, because
the threat landscape has changed so rapidly," said Ian Gordon, Trend
Micro Canada's director of marketing and channel. "We endorse and
applaud the efforts these particular test labs have made in order to
pioneer greater understanding of security issues and priorities for
both consumers and businesses. Consistency across 10 tests since 2009
is one important benchmark of the progress that we and the testers have
Real world testing1 and validation of Trend Micro products provide numerous examples of
those consistent results (see table):
#1 across multiple testing labs provides an unbiased view of protection
#1 over time means the vendor solution can adapt with the changing
#1 across endpoint products tailored for different customers
(enterprise, consumer, small business) ensures all customers get the
same level of protection.
#1 against key competitors proves Trend Micro endpoint solutions are
designed to protect our customers very effectively.
"Trend Micro has led many real-world benchmark tests from multiple labs
since September 2009 against competitors, including Symantec, McAfee,
Kaspersky and ESET," said Jon Clay, Trend Micro senior marketing
manager, core technology "Clearly, Trend Micro Smart Protection
Network, our client-cloud infrastructure underpinning our consumer as
well as business products, is the 'secret sauce' that delivers
consistent and correlated protection across multiple threats - url/web,
email/spam, and file."
Trend Micro will continue to collaborate with test organizations and
submit to product evaluation at labs that practice real-world testing
(tests using threat samples gathered live from the typical threat
sources, applied via realistic attack vectors, and allowing tested
security products to use all available protection layers).
