Enterprise products are tested in the Checkmark, Real Time and Dynamic programs. Real Time Testing – measures relevant characteristics within a network environment. The continuous testing is carried out 24x7x365. The results include detection and performance data relevant to: detection rates, time to detect, heuristic analysis, Zero-day effectiveness, false positives, and desktop performance measurements. Dynamic Testing – evaluates product performance in relation to malware executing as corporate admins and end users experience them in the real world. In conjunction with the detection tests completed above; desktop and network performance, total cost of ownership, and return on investment measurements are a part of the overall evaluation.
