Awards Guide for Personal Backup Software Self-Protection Tests

The following points were awarded for each test parameter:

  • 1 point (+) is awarded if the self-protection system successfully blocked one attack from the list (It is not allowed to lose any processes but retain, or automatically restore, the main functionality).
  • 0.5 point (or +/-) is awarded if the product does not include complete self-protection from a specific type of attack.
  • And finally, if the product lacks self-protection from a specific type of attack and its main functionality was disabled, it was not awarded any points at all.
  •  

Thus the maximum possible number of points in the test is 33.
