Kaspersky Labs corporate security solution blocks 100% of widespread malware, wins another VB100 award

Moscow/local office, date – Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows has received yet another award following the latest independent testing by Virus Bulletin magazine. Up against 37 other solutions for business and server platforms, Kaspersky Lab’s corporate product successfully blocked 100% of malware without generating a single false positive. That impressive performance earned the Kaspersky solution its fourth VB100 award since its release in autumn 2011.

The main aim of the testing – conducted on a Windows Server 2008 R2 platform – was to check whether the solutions were capable of detecting the latest malware from both a traditional and an extended collection complied by the WildList organization. Detection rate was assessed in on-demand and on-access tests. An equally important factor was testing for false positives while scanning legitimate files. Only those products scoring 100% in all the tests received a Virus Bulletin award. Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 dealt successfully with all the tasks.

One of the most important additional aspects of the research was the Reactive and Proactive (RAP) testing in which the solutions were disconnected from the Internet and cloud-based security databases. The Reactive test examined the products’ ability to detect the very latest malware that had been discovered no earlier than three weeks before testing. The Proactive test assessed the ability of heuristic analysis to detect malware discovered after all antivirus databases had been frozen. The Kaspersky Lab product succeeded in detecting 96.49% of threats in the reactive security test and 79.93% in the proactive security test. Despite the limited number of security tools used in these tests, Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows produced significantly higher results than the average scores of 88.04% for the Reactive and 65.98% for the Proactive tests. The experts at Virus Bulletin also highlighted the Kaspersky solution’s simple, step-by-step installation and the speed at which database updates occur.

“Virus Bulletin testing really puts corporate and home security solutions through their paces. On top of that, the Proactive and Reactive tests simulate some fairly unrealistic scenarios whereby there’s no Internet connection and no way of receiving updates for a week, but threats, that in most cases come from the web, find the way to attack the system. Even in such difficult conditions, Kaspersky Lab’s corporate solution demonstrated a much better result than the industry average, while scoring a perfect 100% when it came to the standard malware detection tests,” said Oleg Ishanov, Director of Anti-Malware Research at Kaspersky Lab.
