PRE-LAUNCH: The classification concerns detecting malware samples before they are launched in the system.
POST-LAUNCH: The analysis level, i.e. a virus has been run and blocked by a tested product.
FAIL: The failure, i.e. a virus hasn’t been blocked and it has infected a system.
Sandbox Column: Number of indicators, i.e. malicious changes made to the system without the anti-virus installed.

Automatic Average Remediation Time (RT): The time expressed in seconds from the introduction of malware into the system by a browser, through the launch to detecting and resolving security incident. Occurs only at the POST-Launch level.
