    REPORT: The Forrester MITRE ATT&CK Evaluation Guide

    An Objective Analysis Of The Evaluation And How To Interpret The Results

    May 21, 2019Josh Zelonis

    In an industry desperate for objective efficacy testing, the introduction of the MITRE ATT&CK evaluation of endpoint detection and response (EDR) security products is a much-welcomed event.
