ESET, the global leader in proactive digital protection with a 25-year track record of developing award-winning technology, today announced it has received its 80th VB100 Award from Virus Bulletin, a renowned independent security software testing organization. This makes 2013 the 10th consecutive year that ESET has been recognized by the organization. “ESET is proud to have never missed a single ‘In-the-Wild’ worm or virus in Virus Bulletin since we began testing in 1998,” said Andrew Lee, CEO, ESET North America. “ESET has now received more VB100 awards than any other antivirus vendor in the market. This level of consistency underscores our dedication to our customers and our commitment to superior products.” ESET NOD32® was tested in the Microsoft® Windows Server® 2012 environment and achieved impressive results. “The interface is similar to that of the vendor’s usual consumer offerings: slick and stylish with an excellent level of configuration available,” the report states. “Detection was splendid, with good scores everywhere, and no problems in the WildList or clean sets,” it adds. The VB100 award is well-regarded in the antivirus and malware community due to the stringent testing requirements. Tested solutions must detect 100 percent of malware samples listed as ‘In the Wild’ by the WildList Organization and generate no false positives when scanning. An extensive test sample is used during testing and solutions are used out of the box in the VB lab environment. Re-testing is not allowed. The 80th VB100 Award is not the only test and certification highlighting the superior quality of ESET products on all platforms. During 2012, ESET won the PCMag Consumer Recommended Award based on feedback from 25 million users worldwide in its inaugural year for Security Suites and Stand Alone Antivirus products. Similarly, ESET scored high in TechTarget’s Information Security Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards 2012 and was recognized in 2012 by Frost & Sullivan for a second year in a row with a North America Customer Value Enhancement Award. The award recognizes ESET for continued innovation, focus on customer value and impressive market expansion.
