If you’re the buyer of security products for a large company, how do you ensure that a product works as promised? Security software testing puts products such as firewalls, endpoint protection and intrusion detection systems through their paces. But security software testing has been a contentious area, with vendors sparring over results and occasional accusations of cheating. In this edition of Studio 471, Simon Edwards of SE Labs walks through how his company conducts ethical, realistic tests based on the cyber kill chain and MITRE ATT&CK, an index of attacker tactics, techniques and procedures.
