NSS Labs performed an independent test of the Cisco AMP for Endpoints v6.0.5. The product was subjected to thorough testing at the NSS facility in Austin, Texas, based on the Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test Methodology v2.0, which is available at www.nsslabs.com. This test was conducted free of charge and NSS did not receive any compensation in return for Cisco’s inclusion. This report provides detailed information about this product and its security effectiveness. Additional comparative information is available at www.nsslabs.com.
As part of the initial AEP test setup, products were configured in a deployment mode typical to enterprises. As such, products were configured to mimic an enterprise environment by applying typical applications such as exclusion policies and tuning requirements. All product-based configurations are reviewed, validated, and approved by NSS prior to the test. Every effort is made to ensure optimal security effectiveness, as would be the aim of a typical customer deploying the product in a live environment.
