Continuous Testing


The CheckmarkCertified program validates the functionality and performance of security technologies in a range of threat scenarios and actual use cases. The standard certification is geared toward consumer-based products through malware detection tests combined with system performance measurements.

The new Remediation Test evaluates products in the following areas:
1. Detection and mitigation of currently running processes;
2. Detection and removal of dropped executables;
3. Detection and/or removal of secondary files, such as DLLs;
4. Detection and/or removal of registry entries.
Tested products are ranked into three categories based on test results.

Enterprise Level

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.
