ESET leading the way in anti-malware, report finds

15 Nov 16

ESET is enjoying a landmark score in the latest Home Anti-Malware Protection test from SE Labs, earing a AAA grade for the ESET Smart Security 9 offering, which garnered a 100% protection score.

The test from SE Labs evaluates nine consumer security solutions in protection accuracy, legitimate accuracy and total accuracy.

According to the report, ESET Smart Security 9 stood out as the one product that blocked every threat. 

 “ESET home user products protected against all of the public web-based threats and targeted attacks,” explains Simon Edwards, SE Labs founder and director.

“It blocked 100% of the threats. This software was also entirely effective when handling legitimate objects, giving it the rare privilege of a 100% overall rating,” he gushed.

With 100% scores in all tested categories, ESET’s Home User product line provided full protection against the latest malware samples, infected websites (including those which automatically attack visitors without any social engineering or other interaction), as well as targeted (exploit-based) attacks that attempt to gain remote control of the target systems.

“The SE Labs test demonstrates that we are able to preserve key measures of performance, like accuracy, across our evolving home user portfolio,” comments Matej Kristofik, product manager at ESET. “With a new line of consumer products now available globally on the market, we are able to deliver even faster and more reliable security products that fully protect users,” he says.

ESET has been developing security software since 1987. Its broad security portfolio provides business and consumers protection across a variety of platforms.
