Subscribers can now view the entire AEP 4.0 test in one document. In addition to the overall rating score, ratings are provided for Management, False Positives, Overall Block Rate, Email Malware, HTTP Malware, Drive-By Exploits, Social Exploits, Handcrafted (Targeted) Attacks and Resistance to Evasions.

Ratings range from AAA – D. A product rated ‘AAA’ has the highest rating assigned by NSS Labs. The product’s capacity to meet its commitments to consumers is extremely strong. A product rated ‘D’ is actively being breached by known threats and is unable to protect consumers.

A product rating is a forecast, an educated opinion about a product’s capacity to meet its obligations to consumers over time. Product ratings inform consumers—enhancing transparency and enabling them to focus on considerations that are most critical to their organizations.


Each of our reports is based on thousands of repeatable test cases. Test Reports enable enterprise security teams to understand the impact of features and limitations across different products. These reports are used to shortlist products for further evaluation and proof-of concept testing.
