Matousec Proactive Security Challenge Places Comodo in Lead

Comodo Group : 12 July, 2010  (Company News)
Comodo comes out top among 18 internet security vendors tested against 148 testing criteria in recent Matousec Proactive Security Challenge
Comodo has announced that the research and software testing firm, Matousec.com, has placed Comodo Internet Security 4.0 in the top position among 18 Internet security vendors. According to Matousec's recently published analysis, Comodo Internet Security 4.0 was the only solution to receive a perfect 100 percent rating and was the only solution that passed all 148 tests.

'We are delighted to be the leader among Internet security vendors for the second time in a row and appreciate the thoroughness and scrutiny that Matousec lab researchers engaged in during testing and reporting excellence in proactive IT security,' said Comodo CEO, Melih Abdulhayoglu.

According to Matousec, vendors that appear in the top listing have demonstrated excellence in prevention in the proactive IT security space.

'With this latest set of tests, Matousec has proven itself as a testing organization capable of assessing the prevention capabilities of the existing security suites by creating targeted dynamic tests rather than relying on the outdated static tests,' Abdulhayoglu added.

According to the test results, the best product tested against the latest set of 148 tests and the Proactive Security Challenge leader is Comodo Internet Security 4.0 with the perfect 100 percent score. Comodo Internet Security 4.0 delivers the highest levels of protection for all types of sensitive data, while greatly reducing the cost and complexity of safeguarding business critical information.

The leader, Comodo Internet Security 4.0, is followed by Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 with an 86 percent score, Norton's Internet Security 2010 with a 40 percent score and McAfee Internet Security 2010 with a 3 percent product score.

Matousec tested a specific kind of security software which must meet fixed criteria in order to be included in the project. The main criterion is that the vendor implement process-based security in the tested software. Proactive Security Challenge is designed to test Internet security suites, personal firewalls, HIPS products, behavior blockers and other behavior-based systems.

According to Matousec, the Proactive Security Challenge tests show a big difference between really good products and the rest of the world. Most of the products which have scored very low probably miss some critical features.
