According to a new report by SE labs, Most popular, well-established cybersecurity solutions do not protect their users from all kinds of cyber threats.

The security firm tested 14 of the world’s most popular cybersecurity solutions and, more than half failed to identify all threats.

“While the numbers of ‘misses’ are not out of this world, it’s disappointing to see big brand products miss well-known threats,” said Simon Edwards, CEO at SE Labs. 

According to SE Labs, the firm used common threats  as well as more targeted forms of attacks that affected the general public to conduct the tests.

With the Covid-19 pandemic forcing employees to remain at home, it has never been more important to protect devices and data from cyberthreats. Businesses need to take precautionary measures to protect themselves and their remote staff from cybercrimes.  Businesses and consumers alike are advised to keep their operating systems, applications and cybersecurity solutions up to date.
