ESET announced its fourth Advanced+ award in performance testing from AV-Comparatives, an independent research organisation. The latest test measured the impact on system performance of 20 antivirus products. In addition to receiving the highest possible number of Advanced+ awards in performance testing, ESET has received more Advanced+ awards in retrospective tests than any other vendor, given to products that have excellent heuristic detection rates and low false positives.
AV-Comparatives provide a three-level ranking system of standard, advanced and advanced+ awards. To receive an Advanced+ award, products in this particular test were compared based on how much impact the product has on a system. ESET tops the list as the product with the least amount of system impact.
“Over the years and throughout different tests, we have seen that ESET develops high-performing security solutions that have a small impact on system performance. Receiving once again the Advanced+ award in our most recent performance test is further validation,” said Andreas Clementi, founder and chairman for AV-Comparatives. “Additionally, ESET has always understood the importance of strong heuristics in fighting malware and continues to be the vendor with the highest number of Advanced+ awards in AV-Comparatives heuristic detection tests.”
Speaking on the occasion, Aji Joseph, General Manager, ESET Middle East said: “For a long time now, ESET has been developing and delivering security solutions that keep us ahead in the game and will continue to do so in the future too.”
