The AV-TEST March/April 2017 results have been published and Sophos has placed extremely well among business endpoint protection products for Windows 10.
Testing is broken down to three areas: protection, performance, and usability. We scored a perfect 6 out of 6 for protection; 5.5 out of 6 for performance; and another perfect 6 out of 6 for usability - an overall score of 17.5 out of 18, which places us among the top of the field.
In protection against zero-day malware attacks, we proved to be 100% effective in both March and April against 175 samples, besting the industry average of 99%. And against more than 12,000 samples of recent malware (four weeks or newer), we achieved scores of 99.7% and 99.9% in March and April, respectively, while the rest of the industry averaged 99%. We also did exceptionally well against the industry average when it came to false positives.
