Competitive Benchmarks – NSS Labs

Real Malware, Real Test, Real Solution, Real Protection for the Real World. Trend Micro Ranks #1 Again

Real Malware

NSS Labs sourced real socially-engineered malware on the Internet and tested each solution to see if they could block the threat at its source or during download (Caught Initially on Download) or when the threat executed on the machine (Caught Subsequently on Execution). Fresh malware was sourced during the 9 days the test ran and introduced every 8 hours to the test machines.

Real Solution

The Trend Micro OfficeScan endpoint solution ranked #1 (Recommended by NSS Labs) for the second time in NSS Labs independent test of corporate endpoint solutions. Using multiple layers of protection, OfficeScan is able to provide the best overall ability to keep these malicious threats off the network and the machine. Most threats are blocked at their source, the Internet, which means no file needs to be downloaded (saving bandwidth) nor scanned on the local computer (saving computer resources).

Real Test

NSS Labs developed a new method to test anti-malware products against socially-engineered threats using a real-world, online computing environment. The labs conducted independent testing on endpoint products from leading security vendors to reveal the highest levels of socially-engineered malware protection. The testing was unsponsored and non commissioned.

Real Protection

The results speak for themselves. OfficeScan, powered by the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network infrastructure, delivers proven protection from these threats. And as important, the time to protect against unknown threats is 4 times faster than our nearest competitor. With the average time to protect of almost 2 days by all competitors, Trend averages less than 5 hours!
