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 June 2023 tests and we’re happy to announce that Emsisoft Anti-Malware once again achieved 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. 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 VB100 certification, a security product must achieve the following:
- Detect at least 75 percent of malicious samples.
- Generate no more than 0.05 percent false positives.
The security products are also given a rating based on their detection rates:
- Grade A+: >= 99.5%.
- Grade A: >= 97%.
- Grade B: >= 90%.
- Grade C: >= 85%.
- Grade D: >= 75%.
Emsisoft Anti-Malware successfully detected 99.81 percent of the 2,150 malicious samples while generating zero false positives, and was subsequently awarded the VB100 with an A+ grade!
