99% Detection Rate From BitDefender Internet Security

BitDefender UK : 07 December, 2010  (New Product)
Internet Security 2011 from BitDefender passes AV-Test certification criteria
BitDefender has announced that BitDefender Internet Security 2011 has successfully passed the AV-Test Certification Criteria for the third quarter of 2010.

The test awarded the software high marks across a range of antivirus-specific assessments, particularly in the highly valued categories of virus detection and removal. The ratings were based on the performance of BitDefender Internet Security's antivirus engine, which is common to all BitDefender 2011 security products.

The independent testing agency assessed BitDefender Internet Security 2011 along with 18 other security products in the areas of protection, repair and usability. Tests included:

• Static and dynamic malware detection, including real-world 0-Day attack testing
• Detailed system disinfection and rootkit removal
• System slow-down caused by the tools and the number of false positives

"Many computer users choose BitDefender because they have an ongoing issue with malware that has infected their system and are looking for a better solution. Our performance in the virus removal categories reflects what our users already know - we have the best removal tools available," said Viorel Canja, Head of AntiMalware Labs at BitDefender. "The AV-Test.org assessments are some of the most challenging for security providers and it's rewarding to confirm we're providing our customers with the best protection available."

"BitDefender's malware detection leaves no room for complaints. Their detection rate in the third quarter was better than 99% compared to the industry average of only 96% and its on-demand scanner generated only one false positive during the three months of testing, while other solutions typically created an average of three false positives," said Andreas Marx, CEO of AV-Test.org. "These results were accomplished without slowing down the system the way other products did. In fact, BitDefender required only half the resources compared to the average product in the test."
