    SearchMidmarketSecurity.com expert Joel Snyder recently wrote a technical tip for the site that talks about conducting your own penetration test against antimalware tools to determine how well they're performing -- if at all. Check it out here: http://searchmidmarketsecurity.techtarget.com/tip/0,289483,sid198_gci1373980,00.html. Love to know if this helps you out.

    I've heard good things about VirusTotal.com where you can upload and test malware across different A/V programs. This may provide another avenue for you.
