Outstanding Trial Results On Internet Security Product

Kaspersky Lab UK : 23 January, 2012  (New Product)
Enpoint Security 8 and Internet Security 2012 from Kaspersky have achieved high results in recent trial from AV-Test
Kaspersky Lab’s consumer security solution, Kaspersky Internet Security 2012, and its corporate product, Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows, have outperformed all competing products in two separate independent tests conducted by the respected testing institution, AV-Test.org, at the end of December 2011. In the testing of 23 home user products Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 earned the highest score of 17 points (with 13.2 being the average). In the evaluation of corporate security solutions, Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows received the highest score of 17.5 points out of a possible 18, making it the winner among the eight leading vendor solutions tested.

AV-Test.org’s testing of security software consisted of several trials, including ones for the effectiveness of malware detection and removal, the number of false positive detections, and resource usage. Kaspersky Internet Security achieved 100% results in detection of zero-day and widespread malware, and also effectively detected and removed all active components of malicious programs on an already infected PC. AV-Test.org also recorded no false positive detections by Kaspersky Internet Security when checked against a collection of more than 480,000 clean files. Other products incorrectly identified as malicious an average of 15 legitimate files.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows, the corporate security solution for Windows-based desktops, also achieved 100% results in both the detection of widespread and new malware and in the removal of active components of malicious programs. The test for false positive detections saw Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows return the perfect result – zero – while other products flagged as malicious an average of three clean objects.

Commenting on the results, Oleg Ishanov, Deputy Director of Anti-malware Research at Kaspersky Lab, said: “In the late-2011 testing of both corporate and consumer solutions by AV-Test.org there were two contestants from Kaspersky Lab, and I’m glad to see both came top of the class. This is a major achievement for us, since such positive dynamics compared to previous results show that our development and security expert teams are moving in the right direction. The independent testing has also revealed that both consumer and corporate products from Kaspersky Lab are the unbeatable leaders in fighting emerging digital threats.”
