How they sell security (and we buy it)

The world of cyber security sales is unclear at best

Our reports help you choose the best home anti-malware solution. This latest one looks at how the most popular products handle the threats everyone faces on a daily basis, as well as the sort of targeted attack you hope never to encounter (but might).

There aren’t many resources available to help make such buying decisions. Security marketing is fraught with misleading claims. That’s not just our opinion. “Snake oil” is a common refrain among attendees of security conferences and the large companies that buy security to the tune of over one trillion dollars a year.

Choose the best home anti-malware solution

SE Labs is particularly well connected in the security world. It’s partially how we have gained the trust of the security vendors themselves, and their own customers. We sit right in the middle of things, alongside the analysts who help businesses choose which vendors to work with. This is why your favourite reviewers use SE Labs lab data to help them with their anti-virus reviews and other security articles. Very few organisations get to see under the hood of personal security products. We’re here to help, and provide that insight.

We pride ourselves on a level of transparency that elevates our work above the less open reports available. But don’t just take our word for it. This report has gone through the AMTSO certification process to ensure that we say what we’re going to do; do it; and can prove it. Our results help vendors improve their products and buyers choose the best for their own needs.
