Antispyware apps to be certified soon

Antispyware apps to be certified soon

Finally, antispyware software customers will have some much-needed independent metrics to use when deciding which app is right for them. Trend Micro, Symantec, McAfee, ICSA Labs, and Thompson Cyber Security Labs announced today that they have joined forces to begin both testing and certifying antispyware software apps using a common sample standard. Antispyware apps will now be evaluated by third-party testers, testers who may be better able to help customers cut through the marketing hype and see whether a given product does what it says.
