AVLab is an independent antivirus software testing organization based in Poland. The group frequently conducts comprehensive tests designed to evaluate the detection capabilities of endpoint security solutions.
The results of the latest round of tests have just been released and we’re pleased to announce that Emsisoft Business Security was awarded the ‘Excellent’ badge!
To conduct the “Advanced-in-the-Wild Malware Test”, each security solution was installed on a system running Windows 10 Pro x64. The test environment contained a variety of applications found in a typical business environment, such as an office suite, document browser, email client and so on. The security solutions were updated before each test and allowed Internet access throughout the testing process.
The antivirus products were then exposed to 1,549 malware samples captured from the AVLab honeypot network and verified to be malicious. Researchers analyzed the results to determine not only if the security products could stop the malware, but when in the infection chain they would intervene.
Badges were awarded according to the detection capabilities of the product:
- Excellent: 100% detection
- Superior: at least 95% detection
- Valuable: at least 90% detection
Emsisoft Business Security successfully detected 100 percent of the 1,549 malicious samples and was consequently awarded the ‘Excellent’ badge!
- Stopped 51 percent of threats at the browser level.
- Stopped 49 percent of threats at the analysis level.
