What is a Value Score?

The Value Score indexes each vendor’s product offering and business strength relative to their price point. It does not indicate vendor ranking.

Vendors that score high offer more bang for the buck (e.g. features, usability, stability, etc.) than the average vendor, while the inverse is true for those that score lower.

Price-conscious enterprises may wish to give the Value Score more consideration than those who are more focused on specific vendor/product attributes.


Your Challenge

  • Malware is an ever-present threat that continues to grow at near exponential rates.
  • Poor Anti-Malware performance (due to malware growth) combined with a large number of vendors makes Anti-Malware selection difficult.
  • The cost of infection is such that enterprises must implement an Anti-Malware solution, but cannot afford to implement the wrong solution.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • Virus volumes are becoming almost unmanageable: at least by traditional measures. Reputation scanning offers the hope of a rebalancing of the protection/performance scale and is becoming ubiquitous.
  • Endpoints need protecting against more than just malware: endpoints have become a primary battlefront in the modern security war. Every step must be taken to protect them. Complete suites offer unparalleled ease of management.
  • Cheap and cheerful may not always be appropriate: cut-price solutions may be lowest on features/functionality. Evaluate on both cost and features to determine whether it’s worth spending more.

Impact and Result

Implementing feature-rich endpoint Anti-Malware solutions is the most significant step that enterprises can take to mitigate risk. Selecting the optimal solution ensures the greatest level of protection, and therefore the greatest reduction in risk.
