Becomes first security vendor to win the VB 100 award for the 60th time; ESET detects 100 Percent of In-The-Wild Viruses, Worms and Bots with Zero False Positives
Dubai, UAE, February 9, 2010 – ADAOX Middle East, the exclusive distribution partner and the regional business development centre of ESET NOD32 Antivirus, announced that ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, has captured a record 60th VB100 award from Virus Bulletin, the widely-respected independent comparative testing group. February’s report focused on the Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 platform. Of the nine vendors participating, six passed and three failed.

“We are delighted that ESET broke all records by winning the VB 100 award for the 60th time. This accolade just goes to prove that ESET is one of the best security products available in the world today. We commend the company for their efforts in continuously investing in research and developing the best and most advanced proactive technology for combating threats, viruses, worms, bots and malware in a fast and easy-to-use product. We are proud to be associated with ESET and are happy to promote this world-class product to our customers across the MENA region,” says Neo Neophytou, Managing Director at ADAOX Middle East.

Virus Bulletin introduced its first VB100 award in 1998, and conducts several comparatives every year, rotating its platforms between Linux, Windows, Windows servers and Novell Netware. In order to display the VB100 logo, an antivirus product must meet two criteria: (1) Demonstrate it detects all “In-the-Wild” viruses during both on-demand and on-access scanning; and, (2) Generate no false positives when scanning a set of clean files. Since the inception of VB100 awards in 1998, ESET’s antivirus products continue to boast a success rate of over 97 percent - the industry’s highest. Most antivirus vendors have success ratios in the 50 – 75 percent range.

“Detection rates were quite excellent, and RAP scores proved just as impressive as those in the main sets, and the clean sets threw up only a few (fairly accurate) warnings of potentially unwanted adware-type products,” said John Hawes, Virus Bulletin. “With no full blown false positives, and the Wild List handled with ease, ESET earns another VB100 award to add to its impressive haul.”

ESET is powered by ThreatSense® technology, an advanced heuristics engine that enables proactive detection of malware not covered by even the most frequently updated signature-based products. Unlike traditional approaches, ESET solutions decode and analyze executable code in real-time, using an emulated environment. By allowing malware to execute in a secure virtual world, ESET is able to clearly differentiate between benign files and even the most sophisticated and cleverly-disguised malware.
