Checklist for NGAV Product Vendor Selection

An RFP/RFI Guide from SANS Institute

December 5, 2017


To aid in the search of Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV) platforms for your organization, the SANS Institute has developed a sample Request for Proposal (RFP)/Request for Information (RFI) to act as a template and guide for this critical stage of the product and vendor evaluation process. In addition to providing a structure for this document, the SANS NGAV RFP guide provides questions to pose around the buying decisions related to:

  • The solution’s functions and capabilities and how it meets your specific requirements
  • Operational components like architecture, service platform and primary differentiatiors
  • Support offerings around product and business
  • Vendor and pricing models

You can also check out the SANS Institute's Step by Step Guide for Procuring Next-Generation Antivirus for more in-depth context about searching for, and vetting, NGAV platforms and vendors.
