ESET, recognised as a global pioneer in proactive protection for over 25-years, is celebrating an AV industry record – 10 years of consecutive VB100 awards, as well as its record breaking already 80th VB100 Award from Virus Bulletin, a well-known independent security software testing organization. In both cases, ESET’s NOD32® technology has received more VB100 awards than any other AV software vendor on the market.
”ESET has been a part of VB’s comparative tests since the very beginning, way back in the late nineties, and their products continue to put in excellent performances time after time. We congratulate the team at ESET on reaching the very impressive milestone of 80 VB100 awards, with a unique run of success over the last ten full years, not failing or even missing a single test in all that time,” says John Hawes, Technical Consultant and Test Team Director at Virus Bulletin.
Passing the „VB100“ certification reflects overall capabilities of both – the tested AV product and the Research and Development Team – in detecting all the so-called „In-the-Wild“ malware and having zero false positives. „Not having a single failure for ten years simply shows the high standard and reliability of ESET software,“ says ESET Chief Research Officer Juraj Malcho.
June 2013 Virus Bulletin Report on Windows Server 2012 confirms ESET has achieved impressive results in all categories: “The interface is similar to that of the vendor’s usual consumer offerings: slick and stylish with an excellent level of configuration available.” The Report adds: “Detection was splendid, with good scores everywhere, and no problems in the WildList or clean sets.”
“At ESET, our basic goal has always been to protect the users and their data, while having minimum impact on system performance. ESET products are currently being used and recommended by million users around the world and this VB100 Award is further proof that they can feel safe online and enjoy cyberspace without worries,” says Richard Marko, ESET Chief Executive Officer.
The 80th VB100 Award is not the only test and certification showing high quality of ESET products on all platforms, where ESET is outperforming many competitors. During 2012, ESET won the PCMag Consumer Recommended Award in its inaugural year for Security Suites and Stand Alone Antivirus products. Feedback from around 25 million users worldwide made us the most recommended company in the antivirus market. Similarly, ESET scored high in TechTarget’s Information Security Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards 2012. “It is the second year in a row that ESET has received gold in our Readers’ Choice awards, proving that the Slovakian firm is a serious endpoint/antimalware contender”, said TechTarget.
