Out of several tested IT Security products, only four passed the Anti-Tampering Certification of AV-Comparatives.

We believe that this test will help cybersecurity vendors to improve the tamper resistance of their products and give customers greater confidence in the security of their systems.”

INNSBRUCK, TYROL, AUSTRIA, May 23, 2023/ — AV-Comparatives, an independent organisation that conducts rigorous testing of cybersecurity solutions, has announced the completion of its Anti-Tampering Certification Test. The test is designed to evaluate the ability of cybersecurity solutions to protect themselves against tampering by hackers or other malicious actors.

Out of several products tested, only four successfully passed the evaluation: CrowdStrike Falcon Enterprise, ESET PROTECT Entry, Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business and Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR Prevent. These four products demonstrated the ability to effectively detect and prevent tampering attempts and protect their own integrity from malicious actors. AV-Comparatives are working with the vendors that failed the test to address any issues and improve their products. The detailed results and information on the methodology and criteria used in the evaluation are available on the AV-Comparatives website:

Anti-Tampering Certification Test

The certification serves as a testament to the quality and effectiveness of these cybersecurity solutions, giving customers greater confidence in their ability to protect against cyber threats.

The Anti-Tampering Certification Test subjected various cybersecurity solutions to a series of tests designed to simulate real-world tampering attempts. Solutions that passed the test demonstrated their ability to prevent tampering attempts and protect their own integrity.

These tests include techniques to disable or modify user space and/or kernel space components of the product by attempting to tamper with, disable or modify processes, threads, services, DLLs, agents, file systems, kernel drivers and other components such as update services.

AV-Comparatives are widely recognized as a trusted authority in the cybersecurity industry and its certification tests are highly regarded by both vendors and customers. AV-Comparatives works with vendors who fail the test to address any issues and improve their products.

According to Andreas Clementi, CEO of AV-Comparatives, “The Anti-Tampering Certification Test is an important addition to our testing portfolio and reflects our commitment to providing reliable and independent evaluations of cybersecurity solutions. We believe that this test will help vendors improve the tamper resistance of their products and give customers greater confidence in the security of their systems”.
