Cybersecurity provider, NordVPN, is becoming a member of the non-profit Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization (AMTSO).

NordVPN is looking to contribute to developing anti-malware and VPN testing and share industry knowledge on how to protect Internet users from evolving cybersecurity threats.

“While VPN services become more and more popular among Internet users all over the world, the testing standard remains unclear,” said Vykintas Maknickas, head of product strategy at NordVPN. “The AMTSO community did a great job developing clear and transparent cybersecurity standards over the years. We aim to help improve anti-malware testing standards even further and bring industry knowledge to develop trustworthy VPN testing standards.”

NordVPN is a member of the VPN Trust Initiative, which aims to establish a baseline for how virtual private network providers should operate. Joining AMTSO is another step to increase users’ trust in VPN services.

Additionally, NordVPN is also looking to contribute to the development of anti-malware testing standards.

“Our goal has always been to create a radically better Internet. We believe that together with the AMTSO team and community playing a key role in the cybersecurity industry, we can develop a better testing standard and share the accumulated knowledge needed for the privacy and security of internet users,” Maknickas said.

AMTSO is a non-profit organization that develops standards and guidelines for anti-malware testing, provides advice and guidance to expert testers among members and others starting out in testing.

AMTSO currently has over 60 members from across the security and testing industries, including Microsoft, Avast, McAfee, Norton, Sophos, and other cybersecurity tools developers and testers.
