Emsisoft Anti-Malware awarded VB100 in March 2023 tests

The VB100 is a certification test designed to test the protection capabilities of endpoint security solutions. The tests are conducted by Virus Bulletin, a well-known independent certification body that has been testing, reviewing and benchmarking security solutions for more than 20 years.

We took part in the March 2023 tests and we’re happy to announce 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 64-bit with all recommended Windows updates installed.

The products were then exposed to hundreds of malicious samples collected by malware experts and research groups, as well as a set of about 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:

The results

Emsisoft Anti-Malware detected 99.29 percent of the 1,836 malicious samples while generating zero false positives, and was subsequently awarded the VB100 with a Grade A malware detection score!
