Title: Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite Improving Windows Client Performance and Security: An Impact Comparison of Application Control and Traditional Anti-Virus Solutions

Publication date:   03 May 2013
Document number:    213126


While traditional anti-virus (AV) solutions can provide protection for endpoints, constantly running AV processes along with potentially frequent signature updates can consume resources that could otherwise be used to provide application services to users.

Lumension commissioned Tolly to evaluate the impact on client resources of its alternative application control solution and compare that with traditional AV solutions from Symantec Corp. and McAfee, Inc. Tests showed that the Lumension Application Control solution consumed less CPU and memory resources, thus allowing the endpoint to deliver greater performance across a diverse workload while providing effective security against zero-day threats. As a result, the aggregated time saved by the Lumension solution translates to significant savings to a business by way of time spent. See Figure 1 and Table 1. Additional tests validated the level of protection against malware afforded by the solutions.
