    Hi,

    Website: www.protectstar-testlab.org

    Afaik ProtectStar did in past focus mainly on firewalls etc. but not they extended their scope also to Antivirus and Security Suites, trying to provide reviews which cover various aspects of the products (incl. firewall, antivirus, performance, easy of GUI, price, etc.).

    From the website:
    The ProtectStar™ Test Lab, which has achieved world renown through the "ProtectStar™ AWARD", carries out thorough ongoing in-depth testing on security solutions offered by leading manufacturers. Due to their comprehensive specialist information, detailed test reports have already been made public at international road shows and via specialist publications.

    In addition, the ProtectStar™ Test Lab is the first global IT security company to focus its attention on mobile terminals such as PDAs, cell phones and smart phones, as well as on their security testing and evaluation. ProtectStar™ is continually improving its security hole and defect detection measures in mobile terminals.

    AV-Comparatives supports from time to time ProtectStar in their reviews.

    The last recent review (March 2008 ) about Security Suites will be released in english at the begin of April on their website.
