Latest Test Results are In

Like many students during the summer break waiting for their exam results, we have just heard news of the latest set of tests carried out by AV-Test.org

The tests covered a wide variety of different aspects of a security product, from static ‘on demand’ detection of 1.1 million samples, reaction time to outbreaks, false positives, proactive detection etc.

Each product is given a ‘Grade’ (A – very good, E – very poor) for each of the tests.

As you can see from the summary table below, Sophos performed well receiving ‘A’ or ‘B’ for all categories
