I would like to know if any good Advanced Persistent Threat benchmark for evaluating/rating the APT appliances from different vendor, e.g. the functions that an APT should have, and the performance that it should attain...

Thanks.

You should be checking out the breach detection assessment from NSS Lab (https://www.nsslabs.com/company/news/press-releases/nss-labs-announces-results-from-breach-detection-systems-test/) and Gartner advices the "Five Styles of Advanced Threat Defense" (http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/2595015)
This can help in soliciting from the provider on the capability and some of them are highlighted in the Gartner assessment mentioned above.

To quote I see as a whole for line of defence to be build and not rely on single appliance or system to prevent, deter, detect and response to such APT. Large part is the endpoint (as last line of defence) and user awareness (to close up low hanging fruit) and vigilance to complement the APT protection strategy
To thwart the advanced attacks that are successfully penetrating their defenses, organizations need next-generation threat protection that is signature-less with dynamic code execution to detect the unknown.
