BitDefender Internet Security 2011 blocked 100 percent of the malicious URLs in AV-Test’s recent Real World Test, according to BitDefender. The Real World Test, conducted monthly by AV-Test.org, measures product performance as seen by the user.
The Real World Test, which was performed during January 2011, used Windows 7 as the test platform. BitDefender Internet Security blocked 100 percent of the malicious URLs in the test, which mimics actual user behavior. The links are accessed using a browser where malware is allowed to execute - unless it is blocked by the AV product.
“These Real World Tests provide users with a valuable perspective on the protection BitDefender provides, as it is based on actual user behaviour,” said Viorel Canja, Head of AntiMalware Labs at BitDefender. “This test is a reassurance to our users that BitDefender is an effective proactive security solution.”
Earlier this month, BitDefender Internet Security Suite 2011 received the AV-Test Certification for their 2010 fourth quarter tests. BitDefender earned high marks for protecting against malware infections, cleaning and repairing malware-infested computers and usability.
AV-Test is one of the worldwide leading providers of test scenarios analysing effectiveness, behavior and speed of IT-security solutions.
