Third party testing of security products and solutions plays a critical role in thwarting cybercriminals. The reason is simple: organizations need effective security solutions that meet an evolving set of requirements, and far too many security vendors don’t do a very good job of providing data that enables a fair comparison between competing solutions. It’s like comparison-shopping at the grocery store. Items next to each other appear similar at a glance, but when you look closely at the labels you find that one is priced per ounce, while the next is labeled with price per unit. Another calls itself “healthy,” yet contains too many grams of fat.
