Eset wins antivirus award
Dubai, June 9, 2010
US-based Eset, a global provider of security solutions, has won an award for reliability from the Virus Bulletin, a magazine about combating malware and spam.
ADAOX Middle East, the regional business development centre of Eset NOD32 Antivirus, announced that Eset NOD32 Antivirus 4.2 was tested by Virus Bulletin (VB) to demonstrate its reliability in protecting businesses and being a reliable partner for IT administrators across a range of corporate environments.
With the VB test conducted on the Windows Server 2008 R2 platform, Eset won the 62nd VB100 Award, which made it the recipient of the most consecutive awards of this kind in the industry – 45 in total.
Approximately one-third of all the products submitted for testing failed and hence could not even compete to receive a VB100 recognition, a statement said.
According to John Hawes, director of testing at VB, such unreliability is particularly significant on server platforms, where administrators require absolute trustworthiness and total trackability of all activities.
Eset NOD32 Antivirus demonstrated conclusively that it is not only a reliable product but it also scores well in terms of the lowest memory usage, the statement added.
“Memory usage was fairly low. Detections rates were excellent, showing a continuation of the upward trend seen in the last few tests,” said Hawes.
The 4.2 version of Eset NOD32 Antivirus Business Edition, as well as Eset Smart Security Business Edition both deliver a balanced mix of security features that help protect mid-size as well as large organisations against all types of malware reliably and effectively, according to the statement.
The integrated Eset Remote Administrator tool also provides for simple administration and security oversight of endpoints in a corporate environment ̵ all from a single console.
“Eset is by far one of the best security products available in the market today,” said Neo Neophytou, managing director, ADAOX Middle East.
“Our customers are happy and satisfied with Eset as it is not only easy to use but it also offers proactive protection from the most malicious threats, viruses, worms, bots and malware and that too very quickly. We are happy Eset has won the VB recognition once again and are proud to be associated with them,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
