Knowing the benefits of certification is important for security product vendors and enterprises to understand. The first step is to understand what certification is and what it is not.
"Spyware" has become one of the greatest threats facing users of the Internet. In its beginning "spyware" basically referred to software that "tracked" a users activities on the internet, in most case without user knowledge or consent. However, over the last several years the term has become somewhat of an umbrella term covering such technologies as unauthorized keylogger, screen scraper, harmful adware, backdoors, Dialers, hijackers, rootkits, downloaders and other technologies.
