AV-Comparative Rating For ESET Anti-Virus Products

ESET : 06 August, 2012  (New Product)
Both Smart Security 5 and Endpoint Security get high ratings in AV-Comparatives testing
AV-Comparative Rating For ESET Anti-Virus Products
ESET has achieved another Advanced+ award for its flagship product ESET Smart Security 5 in AV-Comparatives’ testing. This time, the award was in heuristic detection and behavioral protection category, where ESET’s solution ranked among the top tested products. In addition, ESET’s flagship endpoint solution for business - ESET Endpoint Security - has secured the best overall rating in the PassMark Software test.

ESET Smart Security 5 earned the highest possible mark, "Advanced+" in AV-Comparatives’ testing, achieving 87 percent heuristic detection and heuristic/behavioral protection. What’s more, ESET had only a “very few” false alarms, a result achieved by only one other vendor. “The AV-Comparatives’ test shows how good the proactive heuristic/generic detection capabilities of the scanners were in detecting new (sometimes called zero-hour) threats used in this test,” states the report. In a string of recognitions, ESET Smart Security 5 has earned certification in the AV-Test – the independent IT-Security Institute – in its May-June testing. It is a seal of approval, certifying that the product has achieved all of the levels of performance required and defined by AV-TEST in the categories of protection, repair and usability.

“We have earned another 'Advanced+' in an important testing category,” says ESET Senior Research Fellow Righard Zwienenberg. “Especially Advanced+ in heuristic and behavioural protection is further proof of the strength of our R&D teams and talent around the world. Thanks also go to our customers who make our scanning engine even stronger by facilitating the in-the-cloud ESET LiveGrid technology,” he added.

The award-winning scanning engine and heuristics are an important part of ESET’s flagship product for business. ESET Endpoint Security has earned top overall score from PassMark Software - a leading authority in software and hardware performance benchmarking and testing. In its latest report “Fast and Effective Endpoint Security for Business 2012,” commissioned by ESET, the solution was evaluated as having “fastest, best overall performance” - earning the highest rating and excelling in several performance and usability categories.
