ThreatDown achieves perfect score in latest AVLab assessment 

ThreatDown has once again earned a perfect score in AVLabs’ January 2024 real-world malware detection tests, marking the eleventh consecutive quarter in achieving this feat. 

Let’s delve into the details of the test and how ThreatDown outperformed competitors in exhaustive testing. 

The AVLab Assessment 

AVLabs evaluation process is extensive and comprehensive, putting cybersecurity products through a rigorous series of real-world scenarios. The tests involve: 

  1. Malware Collection: AVLab amasses a broad spectrum of malware samples from various sources, such as public feeds and custom honeypots. This ensures the test includes the most current and diverse set of threats. 
  2. System Log Analysis: The collected malware samples undergo thorough scrutiny to confirm their malicious characteristics and their ability to successfully infect a Windows 10 system. 
  3. Real-life Cyber Attack Simulations: All products are tested under the same conditions. AVLab recreates cyberattack scenarios akin to what’s seen in the real world, using techniques that actual attackers employ. 

Products that block all malware samples and achieve a maximum score of 100% protection are awarded an “Excellent” award badge.

The Results 

ThreatDown consistently excels in the tests, and January 2024 was no different. ThreatDown Endpoint Protection earned “Excellent” badges for detecting and blocking 100% of malware.

The standout performance is due to our superior detection approach that combines rules-based techniques with behavioral and AI-based methods to stop threats at every stage of an attack. Our proactive approach, which involves identifying threats even before they execute, played a crucial role in obtaining a perfect AVLab score.  

The Competition 

Other vendors struggled to match ThreatDowns results. Five vendors—Cegis Cyber, F-Secure Total, Microsoft Defender, Panda Dome Advanced, and Webroot Antivirus—all missed samples in the January 2024 test. 

The foundation for superior Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) 

ThreatDown Endpoint Protection (EP) is not merely a standalone product; it’s the bedrock of our ThreatDown Bundles, which combines the technologies and services that resource constrained IT teams need to take down threats, complexity, and cost. 

Leveraging the robust detection and prevention capabilities validated by AVLab’s tests, ThreatDown Bundles deliver a simple yet superior solution integrating award-winning endpoint protection technologies. Learn more about ThreatDown Bundles here.
