SPEECH: Choosing the right security solution

We all use cybersecurity solutions to protect our personal and corporate information against potential cyber threats whether it is a home antivirus or Next-Generation Firewall in hardware for the enterprise. In this regard, the question arises on how to choose the best one. To answer that question, we need to define the evaluation criteria and test products against them. Here we come to comparative testing. In the talk, we’ll share our experience of testing corporate endpoint anti-malware solutions as a member of Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO) and discuss:
1) the types of tests for cybersecurity solutions;
2) the conflict of interests between a testing lab and vendors;
3) best practices in comparative testing.
