The Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO) is meeting in Oxford, England, trying to finalize two documents that we have worked on as a part of the group for months. The “Fundamental Principles of Testing” document and “Best Practices of Dynamic Testing”, applicable to ThreatFire and its tests, have been receiving public comments for quite some time now.
PC Tools is proud to be a part of the AMTSO. We believe that we are making progress on improving the state of testing and its relevance to our customers. Far too often, descriptions of the ThreatFire product are met with blank stares and a lack of understanding. We are excited that with more standards-compliant testing and reviews, coherent and understandable analysis of the product and its comparable efficacy will be better received by users. More details and results from the meeting will be posted later on the AMTSO site.
