Implementation of breach detection systems (BDS) can be a complex process, with multiple factors affecting the overall Security Effectiveness of the system. The following factors should be considered over the course of the useful life of the BDS: 

  • Detection rate 
  • Anti-evasion capabilities (resistance to common evasion techniques) 
  • Device stability and reliability 
  • Time to detect 

As with all NSS Labs group tests, there was no fee for participation. All testing was conducted independently and was not paid for by any vendor.
