Next-Generation Anti-Malware Testing for Dummies

By The Cylance Team

For many, the subject of anti-malware testing methodologies isn’t all that exciting — until now, with the release of the book Next-Generation Anti-Malware Testing for Dummies.

In this book, we explain how artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) can help your enterprise neutralize malware threats in a preventative, proactive, and radically better way than is possible with legacy anti-malware products.



“Your choice of anti-malware software for your organization is too important a decision to be based solely on your experience with a given vendor, customer testimonials - they’ll only share the good ones with you anyway, product reviews, or industry testing reports,” says Chad Skipper, VP of Industry Relations & Product Testing.

“You must test for yourself and I hope this book provides a starting point for your testing.”

The book explains not only why you should not make the critical decision of which anti-malware solution to deploy based on paid-to-play third-party recommendations, it also shows you why you need to test different solutions for yourself and provides the details on how you can do it effectively.

Next-Generation Anti-Malware Testing For Dummies consists of six concise chapters that explore:

  • Why legacy anti-malware techniques are limited, and how artificial intelligence and machine learning combat modern malware more effectively
  • Why you should test for yourself
  • How to set up your own anti-malware testing environment
  • How to safely obtain malware samples and test anti-malware products yourself
  • How to take action on your anti-malware testing results
  • What to consider when choosing an anti-malware solution for your organization

“We sincerely hope that this book will start you down the path of testing for yourself. What we describe here is not the ‘be all and end all’ of testing. It’s a starting point. Testing never ends and always evolves,” Skipper said.

While the publication is intended for IT managers and security administrators tasked with server and endpoint security in your organization, it is crafted to be accessible to non-technical readers as well, so you’ll come away with more knowledge about malware and anti-malware solutions testing.

This resource is offered at no charge, and contains a wealth of information that will get your team up to speed in order to set up your own internal testing lab so you can better evaluate which anti-malware solution Is the best for your organization.
