ESET was awarded 100% protection for detection and prevention of internet threats by ESET Smart Security 7 by Dennis Technology Labs in its independent test. This result was the highest protection score awarded to all products within the test, outranking Norton, Kaspersky, Avast, Trend, McAfee, BitDefender, AVG and Microsoft.
“We know that our tests really challenge anti-malware products. This is why it’s quite rare for any one product to do consistently well and obtain high awards over a period of time. ESET Smart Security, in its various versions over the years, has always been very successful in our tests and has managed to achieve the highest protection score in the latest report,” Simon Edwards, Technical Director at Dennis Technology Labs.
“It’s is wonderful to be once again recognised for our hard work,” said Branislav Styk, Head of Product Management at ESET. “We pride ourselves on building lightweight, easy-to-use products that offer stellar protection against the latest threats attacking our customers. October 2014 launch of new version of ESET Smart Security encompasses features like Botnet Protection and Exploit Blocker to protect even better than before. Everyone at ESET should be proud of this achievement, particularly as we outstripped the competition’s protection ratings.”
The results of the Dennis Technology Lab test, which were issued on November 5th, 2014, show the results of the comprehensive test carried out between July and September 2014. In this test, Dennis Technology Labs compared the effectiveness of anti-malware products provided by well-known security companies.
