Test Your System’s Malware Detection Capabilities

Attackers can get past antivirus and other detection methods measures by hiding malware inside compressed files. Most network security solutions are regularly fooled because they can’t analyze a file compressed in any format other than ZIP.

Are you protected? Find out right now! 

This simple, safe test checks to see if your network security will catch malware hiding in a compressed file. Here is how:

  • Analyzes how well your current security detects an EICAR[1] test sample virus pattern, stand-alone and compressed in different formats
  • Tests the malware detection capabilities of your gateway (NGFW, UTM, & Web Security) and other antivirus clients
  • Captures periodic website screenshots and places them and an EICAR virus sample file into a compressed file using different compression formats
  • Provides a continuously changing hash for your test files
What’s an EICAR test file?

The EICAR test file is a computer file that was developed by the European Institute for Computer Antivirus Research (EICAR) and Computer Antivirus Research Organization (CARO), to test responses of AV programs. When detecting the EICAR file, a competent AV engine will respond in the same manner as if it found a harmful virus.
