Antivirus Product Testing
To deliver to our customers the best in UNIX, Linux, and Mac OS X security solutions, CyberSoft products are tested against the highest industry standards, utilizing a multi-layered testing strategy.
The first layer of internal testing is to determine that VFind will detect each individual Virus Signature that it's designed to detect. Our next round of tests ensures that VFind does not falsely identify legitimate files as infected files, which could interfere with the operations of our customers.
The next layer of testing is performed on a daily bases:
- Wildcore Test: All virus samples in our Wildcore-DB should be detected by new vdlset. We update our Wildcore-DB monthly and the size is growing continuously.
- Falsehit Test: All clean samples in our Falsehit-DB should not be detected by new vdlset. In addition to this regular Test, our vdl-QA (Quality Assurance), our engineer performs additional falsehit tests with huge additional falsehit-DB.
- VDL Syntax Test: To check if the new vdls follow CVDL-syntax properly.
- VDL Duplicate Test: To avoid having duplicated vdls.
Currently, we post new VDLS every morning, after successful completion of the above test.
If any one of the tests fails, VTP stops the posting procedures and sends a fail-notification to related people to fix/trace it. If we or customers receive a (posting) notification email, that means our new vdlset successfully passed all the four tests.
In addition to our own quality assurance, we have third-party testing organizations carry out further tests to ensure that we are supplying the best quality security products to our customers.
West Cost Labs
West Coast Labs is an independent organization with headquarters and testing facilities in the United States, Europe, as well as Asia, they tests information security products—these tests are carried out four times per year at random intervals and without warning. The West Coast Labs has developed the Checkmark Certification System, recognized the world over as a reliable testing platform for information security products. For a product to be certified Anti-Virus Checkmark, it must be able to detect all viruses which are "in the wild". This gives clear and unbiased notice to our customers that we can be relied upon to protect their data.
By joining the Checkmark Certification System, CyberSoft has demonstrated it's commitment to providing a high-quality security solution.
