I am a user / reseller of GFI Vipre which is not listed. I occasionally service infected units. The most frequently used of the AV products on infected units are listed in the higher area of your effectiveness list. Go figure...

Those percentages do not seem good at all, and actually this very alarming considering how many people use end point as protection tool. What I think is even more alarming than the actual high percentages is that these are known exploits! If I was a a Antivirus company at the very least I would be able to block and catch the known exploits!

Pretty alarming when you thing about it. Endpoint suites should be expected to block all known vulnerabilities.

Points out the critical need to patch your OS and Apps on a regular basis.

Having built an antivirus product from scratch, I am not surprised. That is why the new company I started specializes in end-user security awareness training, because the bad guys bypass the antivirus and social engineer the user to click on a link or open a malicious attachment.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
