AV-Comparatives, an independent anti-malware testing organization, published its annual Summary Report 2015 providing a market-wide overview and analysis of security products. In this year’s report, ESET was one of the five vendors awarded AV-Comparative’s Top Rated Product badge.
In addition to being named a Top Rated Product, ESET Smart Security 9 won the Silver Award in the False Positives category and the Bronze Award for Proactive Protection. The report highlights the improved graphical user interface (GUI) in ESET Smart Security 9, as well as its “excellent and comprehensive documentation.”
“ESET has been a constant part of our Summary Reports since 2006. With each new version, ESET Smart Security retains its clean trademark detection and sustains its low performance impact. With improved graphic design and finger-friendly controls, we believe that ESET products are suitable for use on touchscreens,” said Andreas Clementi, CEO at AV-Comparatives.
In 2015, AV-Comparatives subjected 21 Windows security products, from a range of vendors, to rigorous investigation. All were tested for their ability to protect against real-world Internet threats, identify thousands of recent malicious programs, and provide protection without slowing down PCs.
