The VB100 is a long-running certification program designed to test the detection capabilities of endpoint security products.
We took part in the July 2021 tests and we’re happy to report that Emsisoft Anti-Malware was once again awarded certification!
The tests were performed on physical computers or virtual machines with specifications similar to those you would expect to find in an ordinary business environment. Each security product was installed on a clean instance of Windows and configured with default settings.
The products were then exposed to hundreds of malicious samples collected by malware experts and research groups, as well as a set of 100,000 non-malicious, regularly updated samples taken from popular software downloads. No malicious or clean samples were executed during the tests.
To be awarded VB100 certification, a security product must achieve the following:
- Detect at least 99.5 percent of malicious samples.
- Generate no more than 0.01 false positives.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware performed well in the strict test conditions, capably detecting 100 percent of the 1,364 malicious samples while producing zero false positives. As a result, Emsisoft Anti-Malware was yet again awarded the VB100!
