We are thrilled to share the results of the recent VB100 tests conducted by Virus Bulletin, the highly respected independent certification body with over two decades of expertise in benchmarking security solutions.
The Testing Environment
All tests were performed on either physical computers or virtual machines representative of standard business environments. Emsisoft Anti-Malware was evaluated on a clean installation of Microsoft Windows 10 Pro N, 64-bit, 10.0.19044, updated with the latest recommended Windows patches.
To simulate real-world conditions, Emsisoft Anti-Malware was subjected to a rigorous testing regimen involving thousands of malevolent samples, sourced by expert malware researchers and groups. Additionally, a control set of 100,000 benign, frequently updated samples from prevalent software downloads was used. Importantly, during these tests, none of the malicious or clean samples were executed.
