Kaspersky Lab Ends Year with Winning Streak of Comparative Test Victories

Abingdon, UK, 08 February 2012 – Kaspersky Lab saw in the New Year in a positive mood after a series of top marks in several comparative tests. First up in this string of wins was corporate solution Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows and the consumer solution Kaspersky Internet Security 2012.

Both products were awarded VB100 Certification after being tested along with nearly 60 other security solutions. In the three different tests that formed the basis of the certification, both products achieved perfect results. Details of the VB100 comparative test can be found here.

Next up, the aforementioned products – Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows and Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 – fought off all other competing products in complex testing by The products gained the highest scores of 17 (average - 13.2) and 17.5 (average - 13.4) respectively. Testing consisted of several trials, including those on effectiveness of malware detection and removal, the number of false positive detections, and resource usage.

In another independent testing lab’s comparative analysis – this time a very detailed one by Computer Bild, one of Europe’s most popular IT magazines – Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 received another best-of-the-best award: Best Consumer Security Software Product.

In this testing Kaspersky Lab’s security product was the only one to neutralise all active malware on the infected test system. It also achieved the best result in a real-world test, effectively blocking all malicious objects before they could infiltrate the system.

As well as a successful spell for Kaspersky Lab’s PC products, it was also a great time for its mobile security solutions. Kaspersky Mobile Security 9, an Android-based mobile phone security solution, was awarded five stars by PC Security Labs, the only test lab in China to have joined the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organisation.

Twenty mobile security solutions were tested for detection of malware and the number of false positives. On the former, Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 was among the top-three rated solutions. On the latter, the Kaspersky Lab product returned none - the perfect score. The full report on the testing can be found here.

And last but by no means least – the most significant award recently granted to Kaspersky Lab’s products – the company won Product of the Year in independent test lab AV-Comparatives’ Annual Awards. This prestigious award was based on the results in nine different key comparative tests of consumer anti-virus solutions conducted in 2011. In Kaspersky Lab’s case this meant two products - Kaspersky Anti-Virus and Kaspersky Internet Security.

Significantly, Kaspersky Lab was the only solution provider to be awarded the highest grade – Advanced+ – in all nine tests. The full Anti-Virus Comparative Summary Report 2011 can be found here.

The nine different tests conducted throughout 2011 in which Kaspersky Lab got the highest grade are as follows:

1. February - On-Demand Malware Detection Test (includes false alarm and on-demand scanning speed test)
(Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011)
2. February - Retrospective/Heuristic Test (static detection of new/unknown malicious software)
(Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011)
3. March - June - Whole-Product “Real World” Dynamic Test - Part One
(Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 & 2012)
4. July - Performance Test (Suite Products) (impact on system performance)
(Kaspersky Internet Security 2012)
5. August - On-Demand Malware Detection Test (includes false alarm and on-demand scanning speed test)
(Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012)
6. August - Retrospective/Heuristic Test (static detection of new/unknown malicious software)
(Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012)
7. August - November - Whole-Product “Real World” Dynamic Test - Part Two
(Kaspersky Internet Security 2012)
8. November - Performance Test - Anti-Virus Products (impact on system performance)
(Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012)
9. November - Malware Removal Test
(Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012)

Nikolay Grebennikov, Chief Technology Officer of Kaspersky Lab, commented: “The importance of these independent test results for our wide range of consumer and corporate security products cannot be underestimated. If we were to compare them to a sports contest, they would be like winning gold medals in all the disciplines of the Olympic Games.

“Achieving excellent detection rates is one of our main goals, because in a world which sees tens of thousands of new malware samples each day, no one can afford to miss just one serious threat. We are very happy to see the world’s most reputable independent research institutions praising the effectiveness of our products, while at the same time refusing to rest on our laurels and striving to improve our products in the future.”
