Kaspersky Lab corporate solutions take top honours in recent tests
- Published on 26 January 2012
Kaspersky Lab's Endpoint Security 8 for Windows has taken top honours in recent testing, beating other competing products in complex testing by AV-Test.org, the "Independent IT Security Institute" - with highest scores of 17 (average - 13.2).
Testing consisted of several trials, including those on effectiveness of malware detection and removal, the number of false positive detections, and resource usage.
Kaspersky Lab Endpoint Security 8 was also awarded the VB100 certification after being tested along with nearly 60 other security solutions in Virus Bulletin's unique independent comparative review, widely recognized in the industry, whose results were published in December 2011.
VB100 certification is granted to products that meet the basic standards required to be recognized as legitimate and properly functioning anti-malware solutions. The "100" comes from the need to prove a 100% detection rate for malware samples listed as "In the Wild" by the industry's go-to virus cataloguing authority, the WildList Organisation.
Secure Lab, one of Kaspersky Lab's Value Added Distributors in Southern Africa, applauds Kaspersky Lab's successes and reaffirms Secure Lab's commitment to the product.
"These industry awards are a significant factor for us as a distributor when we promote Kaspersky Lab's products as part of our solutions to our resellers," CEO, Lee Milroy of Secure Lab remarked when asked about the importance of these awards. "While we believe in the product, it's great to be able to walk up to new and prospective resellers and show them independent evidence of the product's abilities."
These awards come in the same time that Gartner named Kaspersky Lab a "leader" in its Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms in January 2012, affirming Kaspersky Lab's status as a world leader in corporate endpoint security platforms.
