11 endpoint solutions in the Advanced Threat Protection Test at AV-Comparatives. Some of the IT security solutions for endpoints performed well in the test against targeted attacks, exploits and fileless threats, while others did not fare quite as well.

The Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) test examines how well the tested products protect against very specific targeted attack methods. It doesn't take into account the overall security that each program provides or how well it protects the system from malware downloaded from the Internet or injected via USB devices and shared network drives.

🔎 No product was able to fully block all 15 attacks - some products failed to block 7 out of 15 attacks (Image: AVC).

Many products with problems

In ATP testing, the lab focuses on testing different types of POC-C2 malware based on different attacker tactics and techniques. In doing so, they use a variety of delivery scenarios in order to take into account the possible strategies of the attackers. The aim of the ATP test is to demonstrate the preventive abilities of the respective products.

If you look at the result, there is no product that passes all 15 test scenarios without problems. In some cases, the results are only 8 out of 15 averted scenarios.
