The corporate version of the application ESET Endpoint Security for Android achieved the best performance in the first version of the Security Apps test Android for corporate users conducted by the recognized, independent testing organization AV-TEST.
"Business needs are different from those of consumers, so the decision of AV-TEST to design a test specifically for corporate products Android is a step in the right direction, "said Jiří Kropáč, head of the Threat Detection Laboratories at ESET.
In the first version of the new test, three security solutions were evaluated, one of which was the solution ESET Endpoint Security for Android. In two of the three key parts of the test - Usability and Performance - all three solutions scored the best possible score. In the third part, which concerned Protection, which is undoubtedly the most critical point, the application ESET Endpoint Security for Android was the only one that managed to detect 100% of the 3.100 samples.
Testing for corporate security applications for Android differs in two respects from that of consumer applications.
First, the sample collection reflects the data of the corporate use of the devices Android. For example, instead of "infected" gaming applications, the test sample collection contains threats targeting corporate users. The applications for the corporate version of the test were downloaded exclusively from Google Play, the official store for downloading applications Android. This eliminates the need to adapt protection to cover types of threats that a corporate user will rarely face.
Second, it examines how easily this particular security solution is manageable.
In addition, the design of the performance test has been slightly modified so that the new test assesses its impact on web page loading, document reading, or web traffic.
Conducting tests for corporate applications Android It was something that should have happened a long time ago, according to Kropáč. "Today, corporate internal systems tend to be accessible from mobile devices. In addition, these devices are often used for personal purposes. This means that the need for reliable corporate security solutions for mobile devices is immediate. And where there is a need for reliability, there is also a need for independent testing. "
