Virus Bulletin Gold Award for BitDefender Linux Application

BitDefender UK : 12 November, 2009  (New Product)
High spam detection and low levels of false positives secures major award in comparative review for Linux Enterprise Server protection
BitDefender Security for Mail Servers 3.0.2 has once again achieved a Gold Award in the latest Virus Bulletin anti-spam comparative review. Designed for Linux servers, Security for Mail Servers 3.0.2 achieved Gold for its low false positive rate coupled with its high spam detection rate.

Linux products were tested on a SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 for a period of twenty days. The email corpus consisted of all emails sent to several Virus Bulletin email addresses, mixed with a spam stream provided by Project Honey Pot. Emails from both sources were sent through the products in real-time. Additionally, the test messages were in multiple language and character sets, including English, French, Asian languages, Russian, Dutch, Norwegian and others.

BitDefender Security for Mail Servers 3.0.2 identified 97.89% of the spam messages in the test, with a false positive rate of only 0.707%. For a full recap of the test, with BitDefender's results, please click here

Senior AntiSpam and AntiPhishing Researcher for BitDefender, Catalin Cosoi said "We are thrilled to receive another Gold Award from Virus Bulletin for BitDefender Security for Mail Servers 3.0.2. This award represents a distinction we are quite proud of, having faced a considerable number of competitors. Additionally, it further solidifies BitDefender as a provider of proactive detection that goes well beyond the capabilities of current-day heuristics, offering users protection from known and unknown threats."

For the past four months, BitDefender Security for Mail Servers 3.0.2 has successfully used a new technology based on live query. Stemming from the cloud-computing concept, this technology provides an immediate response time and protection to users all over the world, regardless of language or what type of spam they receive. With this technology, when a new email arrives, it is first scanned locally with proprietary, proactive antispam solutions. If it passes the initial filtering sequence and still cannot be categorised as spam or legit, a proprietary algorithm extracts key elements from the analysed mail and creates something similar to a unique encrypted fingerprint of that message. If the BitDefender network of servers finds a match in its databases of known spam fingerprints, it issues a block command to the client application.
