The applaudable transparency displayed by Check Point, ESET, Kaspersky, and Palo Alto Networks — four of the twelve vendors subjected to the testing — gives a rare peek into the dynamic realm of cyber defense. Their commitment extends beyond product offering; it advocates for a secure, informed digital landscape, leading others to join this open dialogue and continual improvement process. Their spirit of openness has not only earned them trust among users but also raised the bar within the industry.

Unfortunately, the other eight vendors opted to keep their results private. AV-Comparatives encourage them to rethink their stance and prioritise transparency in future tests as it boosts growth and instils trust in this digital age.

AV-Comparatives leverages the Enterprise EPR CyberRisk Quadrant™ to evaluate the solution’s effectiveness in preventing breaches, determining cost savings, assessing purchase costs, and estimating operational expenses. The test results offer valuable insights into the unique capabilities of leading endpoint prevention and response solutions and their performance in tackling sophisticated and evolving cyber threats.
