Third-party testing of anti-malware solutions has long been fraught with issues that often make the results of little use to those in the process of evaluating the right product for their particular business needs.
Ultimately, in-house testing in your own environment is the only reliable way to know if an anti-malware product is the right fit for your environment. If you don’t have experience testing anti-malware products, creating an in-house testing environment can be a daunting endeavor.
The recently published book Next-Generation Anti-Malware Testing for Dummies was designed to assist in understanding how to set up an in-house testing environment, safely obtain live malware samples, and perform tests that address real-world tactics attackers are using today.
In this episode of the InSecurity Podcast, host Shaun Walsh is joined by special guests Carl Gottlieb – Founder/Consulting Director at Cognition and Founder of TestMyAV.com – and Chad Skipper – VP of Product Testing and Industry Relations at Cylance – the authors of the book.
While the publication is intended for IT managers and security administrators tasked with server and endpoint security in your organization, it is crafted to be accessible to non-technical readers as well, so you’ll come away with more knowledge about malware and anti-malware solutions testing.
This resource is offered for no charge, and contains a wealth of information that will get your team up to speed in order to set up your own internal testing lab so you can better evaluate which anti-malware solution is the best for your organization.
