NSS Labs performed rigorous testing of leading advancedendpoint protection (AEP) solutions. Products from 13 different endpoint vendors were tested across a multitude of attack threat vectors targeting a very dynamic enterprise-class endpoint attack surface. In addition, the endpoint products were evaluated for their resistance against several evasion categories and false positive testing.
The Sophos Central Endpoint Advanced & Sophos InterceptX product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on advanced endpoint Test Methodology v1.0. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Sophos' participation. While the companion comparative reports on security, and total cost of ownership (TCO) will provide information about all tested products, this individual test report provides detailed information not available elsewhere.
As with all NSS Labs group tests, there was no fee for participation. In addition, the test methodology applied is in the public domain to provide transparency and help enterprises understand the factors behind the results.
- Security effectiveness across various test categories
- Resistance to Evasion Techniques
- Total cost of ownership (TCO)
