Dubai, United Arab Emirates, August 16, 2010 – ESET, the global leader in proactive threat protection, announced that it has captured its 63rd VB100 award from Virus Bulletin, the widely-respected independent comparative testing group, and leads all antivirus vendors with a record-setting 46 straight VB100 awards. The August report of Virus Bulletin focused on the Windows Vista Business Edition SP2 platform; of the 54 products participating, 35 passed and 19 failed. Windows Vista runs on over 20% of systems.

"Memory usage was among the lowest in this month's comparative, with CPU drain not breaking the bank either," said John Hawes, Virus Bulletin. "Detection rates were as excellent as ever, with some superb RAP scores; no issues emerged in the WildList or clean sets, and ESET continues its monster unbroken run of VB100 passes,” added Hawes.

“ESET’s top priority is to protect the users at a maximum possible level, while minimizing false alerts system impact. All of these facts greatly contribute to our long-term success in Virus Bulletin testing,” says Ján Vrabec, security technology analyst at ESET’s global headquarters in Bratislava, Slovakia.

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.

ESET is powered by ThreatSense® technology, an advanced heuristics engine that enables proactive detection of malware. 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.
