Emsisoft Anti-Malware awarded VB100 in September 2022 tests

In September 2022, we took part in the VB100, a certification test designed to evaluate the detection capabilities of endpoint security products. The tests were conducted by Virus Bulletin, a well-known independent certification body that has been testing, reviewing, and benchmarking security solutions for more than 20 years.

The results of the tests have just been announced and we’re delighted to report that Emsisoft Anti-Malware once again achieved certification!

The tests

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. Security products were installed with default settings on a clean instance of Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with all recommended Windows updates installed.

The products were then exposed to thousands 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 the VB100 certification, a security product must achieve the following:

The results

Emsisoft Anti-Malware successfully detected 100 percent of the 2,431 malicious samples while generating zero false positives, and was subsequently awarded the VB100!
