Endpoint security has never been more important, and with the increasing complexity of the security stack, choosing the right solution can be confusing. The good news is that there is a guide available to help organizations navigate this complex landscape: the “Endpoint Security Evaluation Guide” eBook.

One of the biggest challenges in selecting an endpoint security solution is ensuring that it can protect against both existing and emerging threats, without negatively impacting system performance or causing too many false positives. This is where MRG Effitas’ independent lab assessment comes in.

Evaluating endpoint security today

MRG Effitas’ 360° Assessment & Certification evaluates endpoint security vendors against nine vital criteria for efficacy, performance, and reliability. These include blocking potentially unwanted applications, preventing exploit and post-exploitation techniques, and blocking in-house ransomware samples. Based on a product’s performance on these criteria, MRG Effitas awards four certifications: 360° Level 1, 360° Exploit, 360° Online Banking, and 360° Ransomware.
