In this assessment, conducted by the esteemed independent testing organization AV-Comparatives, ESET PROTECT Enterprise outperformed 11 other vendors in 50 real-world scenarios testing prevention and response. The resultant EPR CyberRisk Quadrant factors in product efficacy in breach prevention, the calculated savings, and the product’s purchase, operational accuracy, and workflow delay costs.
