One of the things I don’t believe we see enough of in the security field is independent testing. Vendors of all stripes make claims about what their products do, and without independent testing it’s hard to tell if they’re the cream of the crop or a bad apple. ICSA Labs is one of the few companies that do the sort of testing that’s needed to provide the information to tell the two extremes apart. I took a few minutes to sit down with Andy Hayter of ICSA Labs to talk about anti-virus testing, education of consumers and a new initiative to use the testing ICSA does in the real world. For the sake of transparency, ICSA is a part of Verizon, the company I work for as well.
