Virus Bulletin has recently dubbed ESET NOD32 Antivirus its most reliable performer in the consumer segment, picking up its 95th VB100 award.

The independent testing authority published its first comparative review of business and consumer products on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

According to Virus Bulletin, of the 24 consumer products tested in full, ESET NOD32 Antivirus continued to display its excellence, delivering no false positives. The antivirus software also achieved a solid rating for its superb stability.

John Hawes, chief of operations at Virus Bulletin, says that ESET remains to be their most reliable performer over the years.

“With very strong detection, dipping somewhat in the proactive sets but excellent in the reactive sets, and with yet another flawless run over the certification sets, ESET adds one more VB100 award to its vast collection,” says Hawes.

According to the testing authority, the product delivers its signature lightweight performance via excellent results in RAM and CPU usage performance, as well as its rapid load time.

The testing also found detection was very strong too. Virus Bulletin claims that although it was dipping somewhat in the proactive sets, it was excellent in the reactive sets and ran flawlessly over the certification sets.

Eduard Kesely, senior product manager at ESET, says the company's antivirus solution continues to deliver on its promise of a lightweight, stable and user-friendly platform – even with Windows 10.

“With this first test behind us, we can have confidence that this product remains a leader among its peers in the consumer antivirus segment.”
