VBWeb reviews August 2016

Virus Bulletin's VBWeb tests measure how effective products are at blocking malicious web traffic, in particular exploit kits. 

In August 2016 we focused on two particular products: Fortinet's FortiGate and Trustwave's Secure Web Gateway, two products that both blocked almost all of the exploit kits they were served, and which duly earned VBWeb certification.

The two reviews can be read via the links below.
