According to the FBI, the cost of cybercrime to businesses exceeded $4.2 billion (on more than 300,000 reported cases) in 2020. The clear takeaway from this report is that cybersecurity is no longer an option for businesses; it’s absolutely mandatory.


But how do you invest in high-quality cybersecurity measures for your business? Hiring a team is far too expensive. Purchasing security tools is a good start but sometimes you need a more personalized defense.

AV-Comparatives Releases Long-Term Test of 18 Leading Endpoint Enterprise & Business Security Solutions / July 2022

The threat landscape continues to evolve rapidly, presenting antivirus vendors with new challenges. The test report shows how security products have adapted to these and improved protection over the years.

To be certified in July 2022 as an ‘Approved Business Product’ by AV-Comparatives, the tested products must score at least 90% in the Malware Protection Test, with zero false alarms on common business software, a rate below ‘Remarkably High’ for false positives on non-business files and must score at least 90% in the overall Real-World Protection Test over the course of four months, with less than one hundred false alarms on clean software/websites.

Endpoint security solutions for enterprise and SMB from 18 leading vendors were put through the Business Main-Test Series 2022H1: Acronis, Avast, Bitdefender, Cisco, CrowdStrike, Cybereason, Elastic, ESET, G Data, K7, Kaspersky, Malwarebytes, Microsoft, Sophos, Trellix, VIPRE, VMware and WatchGuard.

Real-World Protection Test: The Real-World Protection Test is a long-term test run over a period of four months. It tests how well the endpoint protection software can protect the system against Internet-borne threats.

Malware Protection Test:
The Malware Protection Test requires the tested products to detect malicious programs that could be encountered on the company systems, e.g. on the local area network or external drives.

Performance Test:
Performance Test checks that tested products do not provide protection at the expense of slowing down the system.

False Positives Test:
For each of the protection tests, a False Positives Test is run. These ensure that the endpoint protection software does not cause significant numbers of false alarms, which can be particularly disruptive in business networks.

Ease of Use Review:
The report also includes a detailed user-interface review of each product, providing an insight into what it is like to use in typical day-to-day management scenarios.

Overall, AV-Comparatives’ July Business Security Test 2022 report provides IT managers and CISOs with a detailed picture of the strengths and weaknesses of the tested products, allowing them to make informed decisions on which ones might be appropriate for their…
