Eset wins record 60th testing group award
Dubai, February 4, 2010
Eset, the leader in proactive threat protection, has captured a record 60th VB100 award from Virus Bulletin, the widely-respected independent comparative testing group.
February’s report focused on the Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 platform. Of the nine vendors participating, six passed and three failed, said a statement.
“We are delighted that Eset broke all records by winning the VB 100 award for the 60th time,” said Neo Neophytou, managing director at Adaox Middle East, the exclusive distribution partner and the regional business development centre of Eset NOD32 Antivirus.
“This accolade just goes to prove that Eset is one of the best security products available in the world today. We commend the company for their efforts in continuously investing in research and developing the best and most advanced proactive technology for combating threats, viruses, worms, bots and malware in a fast and easy-to-use product,” he added.
Virus Bulletin introduced its first VB100 award in 1998, and conducts several comparatives every year, rotating its platforms between Linux, Windows, Windows servers and Novell Netware.
“Detection rates were quite excellent, and RAP scores proved just as impressive as those in the main sets, and the clean sets threw up only a few (fairly accurate) warnings of potentially unwanted adware-type products,” said John Hawes, Virus Bulletin.
“With no full blown false positives, and the Wild List handled with ease, Eset earns another VB100 award to add to its impressive haul,” he added.
Eset is powered by ThreatSense technology, an advanced heuristics engine that enables proactive detection of malware not covered by even the most frequently updated signature-based products.
Unlike traditional approaches, Eset solutions decode and analyze executable code in real-time, using an emulated environment. By allowing malware to execute in a secure virtual world, Eset is able to clearly differentiate between benign files and even the most sophisticated and cleverly-disguised malware, the statement added. – TradeArabia News Service
