The work of the AntiMalware Testing Standards Organization, or AMTSO, is moving forward. This morning, the group’s website went up, thanks to the efforts of volunteers. It presents the group’s charter, pro-tem committees, membership, and a brief list of resources all related to anti-malware technology testing.
The group continues to grow in its formative stage:
“AMTSO is dedicated to helping improve the objectivity, quality and relevance of anti-malware technology testing. AMTSO membership is open to industry-wide academics, reviewers, testers and vendors, subject to guidelines determined by AMTSO.”
The press is catching the buzz as well with articles at SecurityFocus, Fox Business, InformationWeek, SCMagazine and the Washington Post.
We look forward to further helping open efforts to better evaluate and understand security solutions as an AMTSO member.
