Easily done, and I have done this many times. Take the Results from the fore
mentioned independent test organizations, then run a scan with SpyCAR and
EICAR, showing that they were detected. Then File the independent tests, and
your logs, this will show any C level executive, first you did due diligence
researching existing products, second you chose a product that withstood
independent review, and finally the detection of the test files on your image
shows it properly installed and functioning. This also impresses auditors,
should you be externally audited.
