AMTSO’s charter focuses on the following four areas:
- Providing a forum for discussions related to the testing of anti-malware and related products.
- Developing and publicizing objective standards and best practices for testing of anti-malware and related products.
- Promoting education and awareness of issues related to the testing of anti-malware and related products.
- Providing tools and resources to aid standards-based testing methodologies.
AMTSO Publishes Testing Guidelines
Members of the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO) have published guidelines that, for the first time, set recognized standards for testing security software. The standards have been developed and agreed to by more than 40 security experts, product testers and members of the media from around the world. The creation and publication of these standards is a critical first step in fulfilling AMTSO’s mission to improve the testing of anti-malware products!
